Since 1993, the Kansas City workers’ Compensation Board (the “Board”) has decided workers comp cases that are on appeal after decisions by administrative law judges. In order to file an appeal, a worker must generally file for the appeal within ten days of the administrative law judge’s decision effective date.

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. If you have been hurt on the job and you are filing a workers comp appeal in Kansas, then you likely have a lot at stake. You need just recovery for your lost income and medical expenses. You are depending on a fair outcome of your appeal. It is, therefore, important to contact an experienced Kansas City workers’ compensation attorney as soon as possible to discuss how a lawyer may be able to help you.
