Don’t Handle Your Case on Your Own

Our lawyers will protect your rights and work diligently to help you obtain all of the medical care and benefits you deserve.

We Fight For Permanent Total Disability for Workers Over 50
The truth is, 50 and 60 year olds who suffer an injury after a lifetime of physically demanding tasks are often unable to find employment elsewhere.
Many workers’ compensation law firms will handle injury cases by negotiating a permanent partial disability (PPD) settlement and sending the injured worker on his or her way. At Adler & Manson, we look deeply into the underlying issues about whether an older worker can get placed in another job after his or her injury has reached maximum medical improvement. If it is unlikely the worker will get rehired, we seek permanent total disability (PTD) for lifetime benefits.
Workers’ Compensation in Missouri & Kansas
Our attorneys have decades of experience guiding clients through the entire workers’ compensation process in both Missouri and Kansas.
There are similarities between the two states, but there are also significant differences:
- Missouri has a second injury fund, and Kansas does not: this fund pays workers whose disability is due to an injury incurred prior to the most recent work-related injury
- Missouri has no caps on PTD benefits
- Kansas has work disability, while Missouri does not
- The states calculate wages based on different criteria
- Both Kansas and Missouri have now adopted the prevailing factor standard
At Adler & Manson, we understand that emotions and frustrations can run high during these types of cases. It is with this understanding that we make it a point to have consistent, meaningful communication with our clients. We return calls promptly and welcome questions or concerns from our clients at any time.
