Workers Compensation

Foulston Siefkin’s Workers Compensation attorneys advise and represent employers, workers compensation insurance carriers and self-insureds in the defense of workers compensation claims. The workers compensation attorneys represent small businesses up to some of the very largest employers in the State of Kansas. The Foulston Siefkin workers compensation attorneys regularly provide advice on all issues of workers compensation law such as the compensability of claims, statutory defenses for the failure to timely report injuries, failure to timely file written claims, defenses based on alcohol/drug abuse, evaluation of repetitive use injuries, determining the proper date of injury and applicable statutory and case law, chemical or toxic exposures, cardiovascular or cerebral injuries and evaluation of medical records from treating or evaluating physicians. We are also familiar with Employment and Labor law issues to assist in advising clients on reasonable accommodations to be made upon a release to return to work of an employee to avoid ADA claims, or wrongful and retaliatory discharge claims.

Our lawyers routinely appear before Workers Compensation Administrative Law Judges throughout the State of Kansas. We also appear before the Workers Compensation Board and Kansas Court of Appeals as necessary to represent our clients on all appellate matters.

We believe our firm is unique in the quality and knowledge of the attorneys handling workers compensation matters. It is our pride and goal to provide the best quality legal services at a reasonable cost.
