Statute Of Limitations?
#1
I was injured on April 30th, 2008 in Johnson County, Kansas,
(KC area) had to go to the emergency room etc. I returned to
work after being off for two weeks and then left my job could not
work and now it is july 10th, 2009 and my injury is much worse,
can I reopen my case for much needed treatment and filing
a workmans comp. claim, is it too late? Help with professional
information and a really Great Lawyer if I can reopen my claim?

"A written claim must be filed with the employer within 200 days of the date of accident or date of last payment of compensation for disability or date of last authorized medical care.
You may take the written claim to the employer and obtain a receipt for it or you can mail it to the employer by certified mail, return receipt requested. You cannot obtain a hearing before an administrative law judge unless you meet the following deadlines: filing an application for hearing within three (3) years of the date of accident or within two (2) years of the last payment of compensation, whichever is later."

I am also from Kansas.

I was injured in 2005, had surgery, reached MMI and my medical was closed.

I continued to have medical problems from my injury and hired an attorney to reopen my claim.

My attorney sent me for a medical evaluation and scheduled a court hearing to reopen my claim.

Yes, you can reopen your claim, althiugh I would advise you hire an attorney.

Go to the top of the page to comp yellow pages and I believe you will find information on attorneys for Kansas. Might also try the yellow banner at the top of the page.

Good luck!

If you worked in Kansas, then work comp would be per Kansas law.
That is why 1171 gave you the Kansas Department of Labor web site, this is the state agency over Kansas work comp.

If you were employed on the Missouri side of Kansas City then this would be
work comp per Missouri state laws.

P.S. this board won't include the document address in the hotlink url so you have to copy and paste the full address.
--notice only part of the link is in blue. you have to add the parenthesis information manually.

Maybe there is another Kansas....
