If you've been injured at work, chances are you are eligible for state workers' compensation benefits, which can help pay for:
- Medical benefits
- Wage replacement
In many cases, however, the process becomes complex when insurance companies delay or deny valid claims. At Morrison, Webster & Carlton, Attorneys at Law, we work exclusively on issues like these. If you are injured on the job and encounter problems with your claim, our workers' compensation law firm, with offices in Springfield and Joplin, can help.
Facing The Fear Of Filing
Workers' compensation is not a handout, and filing a claim is not the same as suing your employer. It is a "no-fault" government program and safety net designed to pay benefits for most cases of workplace injury so that a lawsuit is not necessary. We understand that injured employees often have concerns about what will happen to their jobs if they file a workers' compensation claim. However, you cannot be fired for filing a claim. If you feel that your employer may have retaliated against you for filing a workers' compensation claim, our firm of experienced workers' compensation attorneys will fight to protect your rights and your job.
Our Focus Is Your Advantage
Our firm exclusively practices Missouri workers' compensation law. That singular focus allows us a depth of experience and knowledge that might not be available at firms that cast a wider net. We know how to fight employers and insurance companies that try to limit what they pay after an employee injury. We handle all sorts of work-related injury claims, including:
- Commercial and truck accidents
- Burning, scarring and disfigurement
- Fatal accidents
- Occupational disease
- Repetitive motion injury
- Exacerbated pre-existing conditions
- Psychological stress
We work on contingency, which means you pay us only if we recover compensation in your case. The vast majority of our cases are settled out of court, meaning you're likely to be spared the stress and hassle of going to trial. When you come in for your free initial consultation, one of our lawyers will speak with you in person to help you understand your rights and get the compensation you deserve.
