    I heard that workers' compensation benefits are not too good, so if I want to sue someone, can I?
    My employer has a mandatory program to test for drugs and alcohol after every work related accident. Will it effect my workers' compensation claim if I refuse to undergo this testing?
    I was hired in Kansas but injured in Missouri. Can I claim benefits in both States?

    My doctor won't see me because I have been rated. Can I do anything?
    What are the main benefits under workers' compensation?
    When and what kind of payment can I expect?
    Since workers' compensation only provides limited benefits, are there other disability programs that might provide me payments if I am unable to work?

    I received mail from the Division of Workers' Compensation about my accident. What is it?
    I hurt myself before in the same location. How does that affect me?

    What is a medical management process?
    Are they spying on me?
    Should I lump sum settle my case?
    My employer has offered me a lump sum settlement cutting off all rights under the Workers' Compensation Act.

    When should I contact an attorney?
    How much do attorneys cost?
    Is there anything that I can do to influence Kansas Workers' Compensation laws?
