Workers Compensation Lawyer Clayton, MO – Clayton Work Comp Lawyer
At the Law Office of James M. Hoffmann, we work exclusively in the area of Missouri Workers’ Compensation for clients in Clayton, MO and the St. Louis area.
The workplace is one of the most common places that people are injured. Missouri has rules in place that are supposed to support and help people who have suffered a work-related injury. Unfortunately, it is sometimes difficult to get the benefits you deserve.
Where you work is not what makes the difference. A receptionist facing carpal tunnel or other repetitive motion injuries, has just as much right to her state protected benefits as a construction worker who has been permanently disabled by a neck injury.
What Are Your Work Comp Rights?
It is important that you understand what your rights are as an injured worker in Missouri. You should be receiving treatment and benefits for ALL of your injuries, not just the ones the insurance company wants to accept. Do not let the carrier deny you benefits.
If your company is located in Missouri and you were injured on the job, you have the right:
- Make a MO workers’ compensation claim
- Report a work injury
- Get all the medical care you need
- Keep your own records
- Get paid while you’re unable to work
- Pursue hardships for your work-related injury
- Refuse work you believe will make your condition worse
- Hire a Clayton workers compensation lawyer
Again, do not let your employers insurance carrier deny you benefits. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney 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.
Has Your Clayton Work Comp Claim Been Denied?
Many of our clients have told us of situations where supervisors have refused to fill out an incident report because the injury was not severe or because you didn’t know the exact date/time your pain started, despite your explaining that the repetitive nature of your job causes your pain every day.
Some injuries can be traumatic, and it is easy to know the exact date and time the incident occurred. Other injuries/pain are caused over time by repetitive work duties. Both types of injuries are valid claims under Missouri Workers Compensation law.
The right attorney can make a world of difference in the outcome of your workers’ compensation claim. Workers Compensation Claims is all that we do, and we are proud to fight for our clients’ rights. That is why hundreds of injured workers have relied on our legal skills to help them get the full amount of compensation they deserve.
