Know Your Rights If You Suffer A Work-Related Injury

After an accident at work, you may have many questions such as:

We represent workers in a broad range of industries in Missouri and Kansas at every step of the workers' compensation process. We will be there from the filing of your initial claim for benefits through the resolution of your case, working to maximize the benefits you recover. We will also guide you through any obstacles you encounter throughout your case. In some situations, we can pursue additional medical treatment for you and/or unpaid temporary total disability benefits. Our primary goal is to maximize your benefits under the law. In almost all cases, we send you to a doctor for evaluation in order to pursue your case more successfully and achieve the best outcome. We only receive a fee if we obtain a settlement or award at trial that provides you money.

We also assist workers who have sustained multiple injuries over their career by pursuing compensation from the Missouri Second Injury Fund or Kansas Work Disability. Because we are also personal injury lawyers, we have successfully helped many of our clients bring third-party claims against non-employer parties who caused their injuries.

Workers' compensation lawyer John A. Christiansen has received the prestigious AV Preeminent* rating from Martindale-Hubbell and has been selected by other attorneys to the prestigious "Best of the Bar" list in the The Kansas City Business Journal for 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.

Even if you have been unable to work because of an injury, you can afford quality legal representation — in fact, you can't afford not to take prompt action to protect your rights. At the Law Office of John Adams Christiansen, we only collect attorney fees in a workers' compensation case if we successfully recover benefits for you.
