Supreme Court agrees to hear workers’ comp case


The Kansas Supreme Court has agreed to review a workers' compensation case that could potentially award more money to employees injured in the workplace.

The state's highest court will re-examine a three-judge panel's ruling from last August that declared legislative changes made to the state’s workers’ compensation system unconstitutional.

Six years ago, the Kansas Legislature rewrote the law so that workplace injuries would be assessed using the sixth edition of the American Medical Association Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment.
