26 Years of Fighting for Workers' Compensation Benefits for Missouri Employees
Getting the workers' compensation benefits you deserve should not be a fight. You've worked hard every day - you've held up your end of the deal.
When you suffer an injury on the job, you rely on the company to hold up its end of the bargain. You rely on your employer to be honest and provide you with the benefits you are entitled to.
Getting workers' compensation benefits should not be a fight, but many times it is.
In 26 years, I've worked as an attorney in thousands of cases where an employer did not rightfully provide their injured employee benefits they were entitled to under the law. I have the experience and knowledge to fight for you - I have the dedication and compassion to understand the financial and emotional turmoil you are facing.
When you need someone to stand up for you, I will be there.
How Employers Try to Get Out of Paying Full Benefits
When you are injured at work, your employer is required by law to provide you with the medical treatment you need in order to fully recover. If you are forced to miss work, you are entitled to temporary total disability benefits - two-thirds of your average weekly wage.
When you're injured on the job, an employer will often send you to see a company doctor. After seeing you, this doctor might claim that you are able to work, thus relieving the company of paying full benefits.
This happens all the time, even in cases were a worker is clearly unable to perform his or her job duties.
Meanwhile, you are unable to work and the bills begin to pile up - together with your injuries and pain you are dealing with everyday. You know you are injured and can't work no matter what the doctor says and you're not sure where to turn to get help.
