If you have been injured, while working in Kansas, you may be wondering if suing your employer is an option. Typically, your only recourse is filing a Worker's Compensation claim under the law. A civil suit against your employer will likely be unsuccessful. However, there is an exception to every rule - "Dual Capacity Doctrine". In this instance, it must be shown that your employer took on responsibilities (for you or your work) that are not normally part of their duty to you. If so, you may be able to both recover under the Kansas Worker's Compensation laws and in civil suit.
Your injury and recovery matter to us, whether or not you are able to sue your employer directly. Call us today at 913.602.7288 or complete this FORM, for a free consultation, today.
