Guiding clients through the workers compensation process
Our law firm provides you with the guidance you need to make informed decisions in your case. Review our lawyer’s responses to FAQs to learn basic information about workplace injury recovery, then contact our St. Louis office to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation to learn more about your rights under workers compensation laws. We advise you on issues such as:
- Workers compensation benefits — Our attorney investigates your case and advises you about the types of workers compensation benefits to which you are entitled. Depending on the facts of your claim, we may pursue temporary total disability (TTD), temporary partial disability, permanent total disability, permanent partial disability, Second Injury Fund benefits, survivor benefits, Kids’ Chance of Missouri or benefits for emergency personnel killed in the line of duty.
- What to do after an injury — We advise you what to do after an injury to preserve your benefits claim. Our team guides you through each step — including reporting your injury or illness to your employer, getting the medical care you need and applying for the workers compensation benefits you deserve.
- Dealing with insurance companies — As with other types of insurance companies, your employer’s workers compensation carrier may try to offer you less than you deserve for your injuries. Our lawyer aggressively advocates for your rights when dealing with insurance companies that are handling your workers compensation claim.
- Notice, filing requirements and deadlines — Our law firm guides you through the complex Missouri workers compensation regulations that govern notice, filing requirements and deadlines.
