Who is at fault?
In Missouri, workers’ compensation claims do not require the injured party to show that anyone is at fault. Even if the accident was your fault, your injury can still be covered by workers’ comp insurance. Call our office today to learn more about how the law applies to you.
What kind of injury is covered by workers’ compensation?
Everything from an on-the-job accident that results in an injury, to injuries that occur over time, such as carpal tunnel, to injuries resulting in herniated discs and torn rotator cuffs. Workers’ compensation can also include work-related illnesses brought on by stress, such as heart disease or hypertension.
Are you being pressured to return to work too soon?
Your employer’s insurance company will hire a doctor to perform an “independent medical examination” (IME). Too often, we see employees pressured by the doctor employed by the insurance company to return to their workplace before they have completely recovered from their injury. We obtain reports from your treating physician, one that owes nothing to the insurance company, to ensure an objective examination and assessment of your injuries, proper treatment, and a fair award of benefits in the workers’ compensation claim.
