Whether a work comp case or a car accident injury, people need an injury lawyer to battle the insurance companies.

And, even if you have prior degeneration in a joint, that doesn't mean that the joint cannot be hurt. Be clear with the work comp doc if you had no prior issues and that all of your pain started with your job duties. Bonesmacker ★★★★★ Excellent attorney and his staff is amazing.

Great for work injuries if you file a workers comp case in St. Louis.sofia R. ★★★★★ This is a very good lawyer for St. Louis workers compensation cases.Response from the ownerThank you Sofia. A work comp insurer refused to pay for medical care that was ordered per a trial award I won for an injured client. I then went back to court for a second trial and the court "commuted" the future medical award to a lump sum of $800,000. These work comp adjusters simply don't care. Workers' compensation attorneys need to hire experts and go to trial so a message is sent.God bless,James Hoffmann314 361 4300St. Louis, Mo work comp lawyer John “Chicken hawk” K. ★★★★★ He's my attorney he's real good I would highly recommend himResponse from the ownerThank you John.

Experienced Missouri Workers’ Compensation and Personal Injury Representation
Our Missouri Workers’ Compensation Attorneys can provide you with the necessary information to make the right choices so that you can receive the best medical care, benefits, and income. Missouri Workers’ Comp enables an injured worker to receive medical benefits as well as income benefits. You should be receiving treatment for ALL of your injuries, not just the ones the insurance company wants to accept. Do not let the carrier deny you benefits. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can stop the carrier and employer from harassing you into returning to work before your doctor says that you are ready to return to work. In addition, you need to make certain you have a good doctor working for your interests, not trying to make the insurance company happy so that they can maintain a good relationship with the carrier.
It is important to understand that a workers’ compensation claim is an administrative process that is less contentious than a civil dispute. Generally, your employer and co-workers are never bothered by us.
