Overland Park Workers' Compensation Lawyer

I am attorney James E. Martin, and I represent injured workers in both Kansas and Missouri. If you, a family member or friend is injured on the job, I can help.

The laws associated with workers' compensation are complicated, and provide limited rights to the victims of workplace accidents and significant defenses for employers and their insurance companies. I pledge to obtain for my clients all benefits allowed by law and to protect their rights to the fullest.


Why Choose The Law Office Of James E. Martin?

Finding the right attorney is important. Here are a few reasons to consider choosing my law firm to represent you:

  • Experience: I have been practicing law since 1973, handling a wide range of workplace accident and injury cases.
  • Knowledge: Formerly, I served as an appeals judge, and I also represented both employers and insurance companies. Today, I use this in-depth knowledge of the law and the other side's strategy to assist injured employees and their families.
  • Dual jurisdiction: I practice in both Kansas and Missouri, which can be important for many people. If you accepted employment with a Kansas company while you were living in Missouri, for instance, you may qualify to file in either state. I can help you understand which state offers better benefits for your particular situation.
  • Recognition: I have been repeatedly honored for my work on behalf of injured individuals. Rated as an AV Preeminent* attorney, I have also been elected to the elite College of Workers' Compensation Lawyers, selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers and listed in the National Registry of Who's Who.
  • Accessibility: I make home and hospital visits as needed and strive to return all calls within 24 hours. If you cannot travel, I can also handle your case by phone or mail.
