At Troppito Miller Griffin, LLC, Our Goal is to Get You the Money You Deserve in Kansas City…
If you've been injured at work, chances are you are eligible
for Missouri or Kansas workers' compensation benefits, which can
help pay for:
Wage replacement (called “temporary partial disability” or “temporary total disability”)
Your medical disability (called “permanent partial disability”
or “permanent total disability”)
When an employee is hurt on-the-job, the employer and its workers' compensation insurer have a duty to pay the cost of any medical care for work-related injuries.
Employees who suffer a valid on-the-job injury, but are still able
to work at a reduced capacity (called “temporary partial
disability”; for example:
lesser work hours) or who need to take time off to recover
from an injury or surgery (called “temporary total disability”) may
be eligible for temporary disability benefits.
A workplace injury in Kansas City that results in a permanent
disability, but not one so severe that it prevents you from working
in the future, is known in workers' compensation law as a “permanent
partial disability” (PPD).
Permanent partial disability claims cover a wide
variety injuries, including:
Loss of a body part (such as a finger)
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
A tragic Kansas City workplace accident can leave an employee unable
to work at any job for the rest of his or her life. When such an
employee is hurt and unlikely to recover, he or she may be entitled
to receive “permanent total disability” (PTD) benefits through

Here are the steps we will take to help you with your Kansas City area workers’ compensation claim:
We will help you file your required “notice” to your Missouri or Kansas employer that you were injured on-the-job.
We will make sure your employer assigns a treating doctor for you.
We will file a timely formal workers’ compensation claim with the Kansas or Missouri Division of Workers’ Compensation. There are strict time requirements for filing, so you should not delay in hiring us as your attorney.
We will hire a doctor for you who will rate your disability after you have completed your medical treatment. Our goal is to obtain a higher disability rating than what the insurance company’s doctor gave you, so that you can get more money.
We handle all types of Kansas City work-related injury claims, including:
Medical conditions that you had before your work accident that were made worse (called “exacerbated pre-existing conditions”)
Injuries caused by the use over and over again of a body part (called “repetitive motion injuries)
Occupational diseases (See the United States Department of Labor for examples)
Commercial and truck accidents
Burning, scarring and disfigurement
