If You've Been Injured on the Job Anywhere in Missouri, Our Workers' Compensation Attorneys Are Here to Help Protect Your Rights
If you have been injured in a work accident, you are probably concerned about how you are going to pay the bills while you recover. There is a lot of uncertainty following a work-related accident and unfortunately, your employer may not tell you all of your rights as an injured worker. The insurance company isn't going to be looking out for your best interests either; it will be focused on minimizing the amount of money paid for your claim.
A Workers’ Compensation Attorney Can Help You Secure the Benefits You’re Entitled To
In order to properly protect your rights, you need to contact an experienced workers' compensation attorney who can explain your options and eligibility to receive financial benefits. The statute of limitations for workers compensation runs two years for the date of last treatment on a reported injury, so you should not delay in filing your claim. Contact us today at (314) 241-2500 or toll free (877) 241-1020 for a free, no-obligation consultation.

According to Missouri Workers' Compensation Law, when you are injured on the job, you are entitled to receive paid medical treatment for your injuries. If the doctor says that you will not be able to work, you may qualify for temporary total disability. When there is a permanent disability, you may be eligible for compensation for the rest of your life. The insurance company and your employer may not fully explain these benefits to you, which can make applying for workers' comp benefits even more confusing.
The Missouri Second Injury Fund Can Help Those With Pre-Existing Conditions
As an injured worker, you also need to be aware of the Missouri Second Injury Fund. If you were injured at work, but have a pre-existing condition, you could be facing an even greater disability. In this situation, you may be eligible to file a Missouri Second Injury Fund claim. Benefits available from the Second Injury Fund are an additional compensation to your workers' compensation payments. As our client, we will be able to determine all the benefits in which you are entitled, including those from the Second Injury Fund.
