It’s inevitable, many Kansas employers knowingly or unknowingly subject their employees to unsafe working conditions. When this happens, workers can suffer in more ways than one. From life-altering injuries that demand ongoing medical treatment to lost wages, workplace accidents can hurt employees physically, financially, and emotionally.
At Mann Wyatt Tanksley Injury Attorneys in Topeka, KS, we know that many injuries that happen in Kansas work are simply accidents. In these cases, you may be able to obtain workers’ compensation to alleviate some of the financial stress after you’ve been harmed. Additionally, in many circumstances, if you were injured because of the negligence of third party (a person or company other than your employer) contributed to causing your injury, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against that party—even if you’re also receiving workers’ compensation benefits from your employer.
