Can I appeal a workers’ compensation case, and should I hire a Kansas City workers’ compensation lawyer to help me with an appeal?
Once an appeal has been filed, you will be required to file a legal brief explaining your reasons for filing the appeal. A Kansas City workers’ compensation lawyer can help you make sure that your appeal is filed on time and that the brief is written accurately and persuasively. Once all the parties have filed briefs and responses, then your claim may be scheduled for a hearing. The five-person Board typically hears appeals.
