Can I file multiple workers compensation claims?
Yes. You can file a new claim if you re-injure the same part of your body. In addition to medical benefits that you would receive from workers comp claim, you could also receive damages for how the work-related injury has caused increased disability. Recent changes in Kansas law may limit your ability to get your medical bills paid or get a recovery if you have a pre-existing injury and reinjure yourself.
