I had 2 jobs when I was injured at 1.
#1
I had 2 jobs when I was injured at one of them. I ruptured my left distal bicep. It required surgery and I think the final disability on it is 20%. My questions are how does having 2 jobs affect my weekly wc check and final settlement? I live in Kansas.

Are you disputing the average weekly wage determination?
Do you have an atty?
The law makes it dependent on whether the work for each employer can be considered similar.
If You are not represented and wish to file a dispute, you might get more details and case law guidance from the ombudsman

It's actually the same employer under 2 different companies. 1 is lawn care. The other is construction. We would get pulled off of either one to go do the other. Of course the lawn care was seasonal but we would remove snow in the winter. Both jobs are labor intensive. He carried workers comp insurance on the construction company, which I was injured on, but not on the lawn care business. I didn't find out about the 2 job thing until last weekend. Getting ready to settle and I don't want to get screwed.

that's a big important clarification of "jobs".
performing different duties for the same employer would not alter the wage computation for your claim.
you can still check with the ombudsman's office as the details of the situation make all the difference.

2 separate companies. 2 separate paychecks. My insurance agent is checking on it. My employer's insurance is through the same agent.

ownership/identity are relevant; it's all about the details.
unlikely your agent will be familiar with claims case law.

I suspect neither you nor employer reported all your wages to the carrier. you can request a recalculation.
