Description

This story details an employee's experience with Kansas City Power and Light after getting injured on the job. KCPL is not required to pay specialists so care of injured workers unless a company-approved doctor refers a patient to the specialists, and injured workers don't feel the company has their best interests in mind. For example, KCPL sent this employee to a doctor who was on probation for alcohol abuse during his treatment, and had a malpractice lawsuit against him.
