We discussed the recent progress in legislation surrounding water parks and we have blogged about how the death of this young child impacted all of Kansas. The following has been recently released:
"The family of a ten-year-old boy who died on a ride at a popular waterpark has been awarded $20M. The young boy was riding the Verruckt ride at Schlitterbahn waterpark in Kansas City, Kansas when he died after suffering a fatal neck injury. The verdict is, “believed to be the largest settlement of its kind paid in a wrongful death case involving a minor in either Kansas or Missouri.” - Steve Vockrodt, Kansas City Star 05/04/2017
Should your child, or loved one, be injured or pass away because of the negligence of another, call Attorney T. Morton right away at 913.602.7288 or complete this FORM. We can work with you to resolve your claim for wrongful death.
A Note from the Director
In late 2018, the Kansas Department of Labor (KDOL) Workers Compensation Division plans to release a new Online System for Claims Administration Research and Regulation (OSCAR). After completing the DigiComp planning phase late last year, we selected CapTech Ventures, Inc. as the vendor to design and build OSCAR, a web-based application with an internal component for our employees and a self-service portal for our customers.
How will this project affect you? As an attorney, employer, insurance carrier, or individual, you will register as an OSCAR user to manage claims, schedule hearings, submit electronic forms, apply for self-insurance, and more.
We are looking forward to modernizing our workers compensation processes with this new tool and want to thank you for your patience and support throughout this transition. Please read on for more information about the project, and send any questions or input toOSCAR@dol.ks.gov.
