If you’ve been injured on the job, we can help you get the workers’ compensation benefits that you deserve.
What is Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation is a “no fault” insurance system that pays benefits to workers who have job-related injuries or diseases. With rare exceptions based on the number of employees or the industry, all employers in Missouri and Illinois are required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance.
What are the benefits?
If you are hurt on the job, workers' compensation benefits cover your full medical expenses, a percentage of your lost wages and compensation for any permanent disability that you sustain.
After suffering serious injuries, some workers are unable to return to the workforce at all. In these cases, workers can claim permanent total disability benefits or weekly pay for the remainder of the worker’s life.
What types of injuries are covered?
Workers’ compensation covers any type of injury or disease that occurs in the workplace. Some of the most common cases involve:
- Construction Accidents
- Broken Bones
- Burn Injuries
- Brain Injuries
- Industrial Equipment Injuries
- Shoulder, Head, Neck & Back Injuries
- Wrongful Death
- Repetitive Lifting
- Occupational Disease
- Knee & Joint Injuries
- Carpal Tunnel
- Seaman Injuries (Jones Act)
- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
- Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)
