Our Joplin Attorneys Are Leaders In Injury Law

When you are injured, you need medical treatment — and compensation — as soon as possible. Whether you were injured on the job or due to someone else’s negligence, finding a lawyer who understands how to fight for you is essential.

At Wood & Peterson, LLC, our Joplin personal injury lawyers and Joplin workers’ compensation attorneys are ready to stand up for you. With offices in Neosho, Joplin and Tina, we are nearby whenever you need us. Our leadership in workers’ compensation law is anchored by attorney Andrew Wood’s background as a former workers’ compensation judge for the state of Missouri. His experience as a judge means that our clients gain the best possible ally for maximizing their workers’ comp benefits.

Attorney Wood and his partner, William Peterson, have been in the trenches for decades, investigating accidents and representing plaintiffs in personal injury and workers’ compensation cases. They have a history of winning big cases with substantial compensation for their clients. They can help you, too — it’s time your voice was heard.
