Since the discovery of salt in Reno County during the late 1800s, Hutchinson, Kansas, has continued to enjoy a thriving economy based on salt production, agriculture, manufacturing and more. Today, our city and surrounding area are home to various plants and large companies. If you are a local worker who has suffered a work injury and are considering filing a workers’ compensation claim, you are no doubt considering many factors.
The Mann, Wyatt & Rice Midwest Injury Firm in Hutchinson specifically handles personal injury and workers’ compensation cases. One question we are asked frequently is if someone pursuing a workers’ compensation claim can still talk to their employer?
According to Mitch Rice, founding partner of the Mann, Wyatt & Rice Midwest Injury Firm, when you pursue a workers’ compensation claim, you are not really suing your employer— you are simply pursuing a claim in the workers’ compensation system.
