The equipment, products, machines, etc. necessary to complete your job may be the very things that cause your injury. When this occurs you are likely wondering if you may both be compensated by your employer and the product manufacturer. The short answer is, it depends. Your Kansas employer will likely be your first, and fastest, source of medical benefits and compensation. Additionally, a third party claim, against the product manufacturer, may also be a source of damage recovery and, likely the largest sources. While both may be responsible for your injury, you cannot double recover (i.e. if you are entitled to $100,000 you cannot recover $100,000 from your employer and $100,000 from the manufacturer, for a total of $200,000).
