No matter what industry you work in, you should be able to expect that your manager or supervisor and coworkers are taking reasonable precaution to ensure your safety. If you have been involved in a workplace accident which has left you injured and unable to perform your job duties, you are likely eligible for workers’ compensation. However, many employers and their insurance companies make it difficult to get through the claim process. Our Topeka work injury lawyer at Brumley Law Office can help guide you and ensure your employer doesn’t take advantage of you.
Workers’ compensation is intended to cover any possible accident which takes place in the workplace or while performing job-related tasks. There is a wide range of workplace accidents which can cause serious injuries, depending on the industry you work in.
You can rely on us to provide you with compassionate representation, regardless of the type of injuries you have suffered. We have 25 years of experience representing all types of cases, from minor broken bones to catastrophic injuries like loss of hearing, blindness, and paralysis.

In most cases, you are not able to sue your employer in a personal injury suit because they are covered under workers’ compensation. However, if you believe another party was responsible for your injuries, such as an equipment manufacturer, you may have grounds for a lawsuit.
Filing for workers’ compensation is made significantly easier by hiring a caring and experienced Topeka work injury attorney. We are here to take care of the insurance companies and your paperwork so you can focus on healing and recovery from your injuries. In fact, we work on a contingency fee basis so you don’t have to worry about upfront payment.
