Missouri workers' compensation lawyers provide legal advice:

If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, we invite you to contact our office.

We know our clients come to us with numerous questions about what to expect, and - of course - they want to know what we can do to help.

How Missouri workers' comp lawyers help injured employees:

Every client - and every case - is different. In general, a knowledgeable lawyer can offer the following services:

  • Analyze the circumstances surrounding your injury and determine whether or not you have a valid claim
  • Answer your questions and address your concerns
  • File your case within the required legal time limits
  • Find and work with expert witnesses (such as medical doctors) as needed
  • Guide you through the Missouri workers compensation maze
  • Deal with the insurance company on your behalf
  • Appeal your case if you've been denied benefits

Additional considerations:

  • If you have a scar on your face, head, or neck from your work injury, you may be entitled to additional compensation.
  • If you were injured by a defective product, you may be entitled to additional compensation.
  • If you are receiving other benefits (i.e. social security disability, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.), those benefits can impact the workers' comp benefits you may receive.

Missouri workers' compensation lawyer fees:

There is no charge, no pressure and no obligation associated with our initial conference. In addition, our attorneys work on a contingent-fee basis, which means the fee for our services is contingent upon recovering money in your workers' compensation case. It won't cost you anything to find out if we can help.
