Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys

I was injured on the job, but my injuries were caused by a coworker’s clowning around. If my Kansas City work injury was caused by another employee horsing around, am I covered by worker’s compensation?

Not likely, as “Horseplay” situations would be considered personal (between you and the other employee) and not covered by worker’s compensation insurance.

However, if you were injured because of the negligent behavior of a coworker or the employer, you may have a case.  Contact a Kansas City worker’s compensation attorney for more information about your rights.
