Experienced Lawyers Ready to Stand by Your Side
Since 2005, the Missouri workers' comp laws have drastically changed, and now the laws are more favorable to your employer. Because the laws have become much stricter, you need a lawyer's assistance immediately after an injury. Even if you are seen by a doctor immediately, it is still imperative that you file a claim quickly.
When you work with our firm, we will work through this entire process with you in the timeliest manner. We will explain the theory of workers' compensation law, examine the details behind the accident and explain what benefits you are entitled to. Our St. Louis workers' compensation attorneys will provide charts explaining how your claim will be filed and a table that shows all of the time constraints. We even examine your prior medical history to help determine if you are eligible for additional benefits or even Social Security Disability.
If you require a translator to communicate with your doctor or other medical professional, we will provide an in-house translator in Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian at no additional charge. Our attorneys will answer all your questions, which may include:
- When can I return to work?
- Can I see my own doctor for my injuries?
- How much paid time off work will I get?
- If I return to work, will I still get benefits?
- What am I entitled to if my injuries are permanent?
- What are the benefits available for total body impairment?
