Many injured employees, especially those living in the Kansas City area, have the right to get workers' compensation benefits both in Kansas and Missouri. The employee cannot "double dip". In other words, each State will get a credit for benefits paid in the other State. However, it is important to consult an attorney familiar with the laws in both Kansas and Missouri to maximize the benefits available to you in each State.
