McDowell Rice’s Workers’ Compensation group successfully helps injured workers navigate the complex process involving employers, medical providers and insurance companies. All proceedings are brought before an Administrative Law Judge generally in the county where one is injured.
Whether your workers’ comp claim is in Missouri or Kansas, our team is ready to assist you. We assist you in the reporting of your injury to your employer, assuring that you are compliant with the treatment authorized by your employer, that you receive weekly payments, and that you receive a second medical opinion. A second medical opinion is generally obtained after the employer’s authorized treating physician has released you from care and deemed you have reached maximum medical improvement. The second medical opinion generally assists with a final resolution of your claim or it will provide us with a roadmap for necessary medical treatment to potentially obtain before the resolution of your claim.
