It is my passion to fight for the injured in Missouri. You suffered severe injuries requiring surgery. Insurance companies think injury claims are a game but its not. People have bills to pay and family to provide for. Unlike the "big" law firms that settle cheap to pay for advertising costs, I hire experts and try cases. God bless. Sonya D. ★★★★★ Mr. Jim Hoffman is the best Lawyer in Mo, If I just can give him a 10 star out of 5 I will give him a 10 star, They are the greatest.Response from the ownerVery kind of you Sonya. Both workers comp and car accident insurance companies like to play the game of blaming pre-existing degenerative changes even though someone had no prior pain, no prior limitations, and no prior treatment to the body part at issue. This happens a lot with back injuries such as herniated or ruptured lumbar and cervical discs that require a fusion or disc replacement surgery. I have developed an extensive cross examination of the insurance company experts to expose their flawed opinions. Glad to fight for the injured.Jim HoffmannSt. Louis injury attorney314 361 4300 unpopular_kid ★★★★★ amazing service, got my speeding ticket (which was over 40) down to a parking violation.Response from the ownerCar accidents, work comp, and other injury claims in Missouri are my specialty.

He is there to answer questions and gets you what your case is worth.Response from the ownerThank you Edward. Missouri workers compensation has become a battle ground. The insurance companies have taken over Jeff City and the laws are become more employer/insurer friendly. We hire experts, take a lot of depos, and try cases every year. Missouri injury claims are our speciality. Jim Hoffmann Danielle S. ★★★★★ Everyone on staff is incredibly polite and always ready and willing to help. I had several questions along the way through out my case and Jamie was always there to get my questions answered. With the efforts of Mr. Hoffmann and his staff I had a very favorable result and they took great care of my case. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Hoffmann and he truly is a "salt of the earth" kind of guy. 10/10 Would recommend to anyone in need of these services!Response from the ownerThanks Danielle. Whether a work comp case or a car accident injury, people need an injury lawyer to battle the insurance companies. Adjusters claim they are not trained to deny claims, but when deposed they admit to profit sharing retirement plans: more they deny means more profits they share. Thank you for your confidence in my practice. Glad to help those injured in Missouri.Jim Hoffmann Jerry C. ★★★★★ James law office he is a good lawyer to represent you when you need a lawyer when you get hurt on the job. Jamie his secretary does an outstanding job for his to anybody.Response from the ownerFighting insurance companies for injured workers is our passion.

Napptacular by Design Tammy A. ★★★★★ I was injured at work, Mr. Hoffman and his team handled my case. I was very pleased with them. Very nice, when I called I always got help or a call back with answers to my questions. I also meet Mr. Hoffman, it wasn’t an associate. He greeted me on my first visit and when I went to receive my settlement, he talked with me, and thanked me.Response from the ownerMissouri workers compensation recognizes both acute and repetitive use on the job work injuries. 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.Response from the ownerThanks Sophia and apologies for the late reply. This just popped on my screen to reply to. Injured workers need a lawyer. Fighting alone against an insurance company, the insurance company lawyer, the employer, and the insurance company doctors is an impossible battle for an injured employee. The insurance company will schedule FCE, functional capacity evals, which are not allowed. The adjuster will schedule neuropsych evals which are not allowed. Insurance doctors will blame ongoing pain and limitations on pre-existing arthritis even though the patient had no prior issues. I am glad to lead the way and will fight the insurance companies with my experts and my trial experience.Jim Hoffmann 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.

Got a large settlement for my work injury approved. Mr. Hoffmann is a good person!Response from the ownerThank you Jackie. It surprises me that so many employers deny repetitive use claims.

Thomas H. ★★★★★ jim helped with a recent car accident. Jim found a doctor for me. helped recover my lost wages and other bills. jim made it very easy,Response from the ownerThanks Tom. Having admissible evidence is the key to settling or trying a car accident claim. In addition to the medical records, we will have an expert testify as to causation, permanency, and future medical care. For catastrophic injuries such as brain damage or paralysis, we will obtain a life care plan and wage loss expert. it is critical that the attorney hire experts as the insurance companies spare no expense in fighting the injured.Jim Hoffmann314 361 4300 Sean T. ★★★★★ Mr. Hoffmann did an excellent job fighting on my behalf!

We just had a trial on a denied carpal tunnel case where the employer/insurer played all sorts of games.

When we get injured, the employer fights our workers compensation claim as well as our treatment. This attorney is great if you get injured at work.Response from the ownerThank you Ryan. Workers comp is getting tougher in Missouri for injured employees as Jefferson City is passing more laws that favor the insurance companies. Your Missouri attorney needs to get experts, take depos, and prepare the case for trial.

Going against an employer on a work injury claim is difficult without a lawyer. I highly recommend you hire this attorney.Response from the ownerThanks Matt. Injured workers are always surprised when their PCP or ER records don't mention that the injury happened at work. It's your right to use your health insurance for a work comp injury. What your PCP or the ER fears is their bill not being paid by health insurance because a work injury was mentioned in the records. Your health insurance should pay, but like work comp insurers, they are all bullies and don't hesitate to wrongfully deny claims. Jefferson City can pass laws to stop this. If you want to settle cheap, then go without a lawyer.Law Office of James M. HoffmannSt. Louis, MO work comp lawyer314 361 4300 jasmyn L. ★★★★★ I recommend this lawyer for any St. Louis work injury claims. This lawyer fought the workers comp adjuster and attorney throughout the entire compensation claim. He gets very good results on his cases.Response from the ownerThank you Jasmyn. The fight will continue as our lawmakers in Jefferson City are passing more laws that favor the Missouri workers compensation insurance companies. Injured workers need representation as the employer/insurer hires an attorney for every case. Plus, not complying with the work comp laws can get your case dismissed or benefits substantially reduced. Glad to help anytime.Law Office of James M.

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.
