Attorney Tim Alvarez Focuses on Workers’ Compensation

Tim Alvarez

For Tim Alvarez, workers’ compensation isn’t a sideline: It’s the heart and soul of his legal practice.

Tim doesn’t do a little criminal defense, a few divorce cases and some workers’ comp. For over 40 years, he has been helping injured workers in the Kansas City metropolitan area, and the surrounding areas of Missouri and Kansas obtain justice under the law.

His clients appreciate the personal service he provides as well as the results he achieves. Mr. Alvarez is licensed in both Missouri and Kansas, which helps him assist clients with complex cases that may cross borders. His experience also means that he is familiar with the laws and differences between the two states. This helps him gain the best outcomes for his clients.

He is a past president of the Kansas Trial Lawyers Association and the Wyandotte County Bar Association (Kansas City, Kansas). Tim is a frequent speaker and writer on topics related to Worker’s Compensation. 

Widely respected by lawyers and judges throughout the region, attorney Alvarez has been named by the Kansas City Business Journal in its Best of the Bar in Workers’ Compensation list of Kansas City lawyers for 10 years. Tim applies this consistency in excellence to the clients and cases he represents.

Worker's Compensation

Workers’ compensation is a complex system. That’s why your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company has its lawyers. If you don’t follow the process correctly or meet all the deadlines, you decrease your chances of receiving benefits.

The goal of your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company is to avoid paying benefits entirely or to pay you as little as possible. My goal is to maximize the amount of benefits you receive in your workers’ comp or personal injury claim.

If you suffered an on-the-job injury or a work-related illness, you may be entitled to receive:

Medical treatment at no cost to you

A weekly check if you are unable to work

A settlement for permanent impairment or disability

Certain other benefits depending on whether you have a Missouri or Kansas claim
