Workers compensation laws exists to compensate employees for medical treatment and lost wages occurring as a result of an injury that is sustained through an accident in the workplace, a job-related disease or a disability acquired over time that is caused by working conditions. While your employer may seem eager to help, it is important to understand that these companies want to restrict benefits and preserve their bottom lines. One benefit that is often overlooked is the lump sum payment that many work accident victims are entitled to. We are committed to seeing that our clients get all compensation, including these lump sum work disability payments.

In some cases, injured workers may be entitled to more than just workers’ compensation. A third-party personal injury claim may be filed if the accident was caused by a party that was not the victim’s employer or co-worker. Given our experience, our St. Louis Workers Compensation Attorney can not only seek work comp benefits, on your behalf, but also file and pursue a personal injury lawsuit, too. An overwhelming majority of workers’ compensation cases settle before a hearing or arbitration, which is essentially just a trial based on the evidence.
