Workers' Compensation Attorney

After an accident at work, you may have many questions such as:

We represent workers in a range of industries in Missouri and Kansas at every step of the workers' compensation process. We will be there from the filing of your initial claim for benefits through the resolution of your case. We will also guide you through any obstacles you encounter throughout your case. In some situations, we can pursue additional medical treatment for you and/or unpaid temporary total disability benefits. Our primary goal is to maximize your benefits under the law. In almost all cases, we send you to a doctor for evaluation in order to pursue your case more successfully and achieve the best outcome. We only receive a fee if we obtain a settlement or award at trial that provides you money.

We also assist workers who have sustained multiple injuries over their career by pursuing compensation from the Missouri Second Injury Fund or Kansas Work Disability. Because we are also personal injury lawyers, we have successfully helped many of our clients bring third-party claims against nonemployer parties who caused their injuries.
