Who Can Get Workers’ Compensation In Missouri?

Workers’ compensation provides wage benefits and medical benefits to people who have a work-related injury, or illness. Injured workers may receive benefits in a variety of circumstances, including:

  • Work-related accident injuries (e.g., injured back, knee, wrist or shoulder)
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Occupational illness or disease
  • Aggravation of a preexisting condition
  • Common workplace injuries (e.g., slip and fall, machinery-caused injury, etc.)

If you or a loved one has suffered a compensable work injury, you are generally entitled to benefits regardless of fault or negligence. Our honest and experienced team is here to help you pursue the benefits you deserve.

Our Workers’ Comp Attorneys Stand Up To The Insurance Company

Remember, when we take legal action, it is not against your employer. It is against your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company. All we want is to make sure the insurance company does what it is supposed to do: provide you the maximum amount of benefits you are entitled to after a workplace accident.

We assist our clients through the complex process of filing claims and pursuing what they deserve. The insurance company has attorneys working for them to minimize your benefits. You want a show-me lawyer who can fight for you against the army of insurance attorneys. Our proven team is here to advocate for you strongly.
