Often our clients come to us after receiving notice of a voluntary conference at the Division of Workers’ Compensation. The employee is given no further information and no advice is given to the employee as to what the value of his or her case is prior to the hearing. Missouri Workers’ Compensation involves a highly complex set of laws. The ability to obtain compensation has become much harder with recent changes in Missouri Workers’ Compensation making it more difficult to obtain compensation or quality legal advice. The insurance companies, claims adjusters and law firms representing companies in Workers’ Compensation matters are highly skilled and aggressive and present low offers of settlement designed to give you less than your case is truly worth. We offer strong advocacy, knowledge of the law and are dedicated to success in every case we handle. We have knowledge and skill in valuing Workers’ Compensation cases and obtaining maximum value for your case.
Obtaining Workers’ Compensation benefits can be an overwhelming and confusing process and changes in the law have made it more difficult for injured workers to obtain benefits in Missouri.
We handle a variety of work-related injuries. Claims include construction site accidents, accidental injuries at work, and repetitive motion claims. We have represented numerous police officers in job-related injuries including injuries caused by combative suspects and from high-speed pursuits.
It is important to be aware that Workers’ Compensation benefits may include more than payment for medical expenses and lost wages. Many people who are injured at work are unaware that they are entitled to a partial disability payment or payment from the State of Missouri for their injuries. There may also be third party claims to assert as part of a work injury.
