Workers' Compensation Lawyers

All injuries are stressful, but work injuries cause even more problems. Many people are afraid to report the injury or to file a workers' compensation claim. Others are forced to return to work before they are completely healed. Some are restricted to light duty, which results in decreased wages. With the help of an experienced attorney, however, you can get the benefits you need and ensure that your employer treats you fairly.

We Protect The Rights Of Injured Workers

Reporting your injury to your employer is not the same as filing a workers' compensation claim. You must report the injury and file a claim to receive workers' compensation. In Missouri, there is a two-year statute of limitations for filing a claim. Talk to us as soon as possible so we can help you file a claim.

You may receive workers' compensation for any on-the-job injury, including:

  • Amputations
  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Vision or hearing loss
  • Repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Joint injuries

If your injury was caused by a third party, you may be entitled to collect additional damages from a personal injury suit. We will review your case to determine whether third-party negligence applies.

Workers' compensation benefits may provide:

  • Compensation for lost wages
  • Medical coverage for the injury
  • Death benefits for surviving dependents

We work hard to ensure that clients receive all of the benefits they deserve after a workplace accident.
