Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys

My friend told me that I can’t sue for my work-related construction accident because of Worker’s Compensation law. Is that true?

Sometimes Worker’s Compensation law does make it difficult to sue your employer for your construction accident that happened on the clock. It also makes it difficult to sue any coworkers involved in the incident. It is important to keep in mind that other people could be at fault as well. For example, subcontractors, draftsmen, or the owner of the property could each have a role in the incident. The only way to determine liability of one person or multiple is to have the incident investigated. An experienced Kansas City construction worker accident attorney can review the details with you and offer advice for you to consider. If someone else other than your coworkers or employer are liable, you may be able to recover damages from those people.
