Helping You Obtain The Workers’ Compensation Benefits You Need
The workers’ compensation system in Missouri allows people who have suffered injuries, or those who have contracted an occupational illness, to obtain important benefits to supplement income while out of work, cover the cost of medical treatment and associated therapies, and compensate victims for disability. Unfortunately, the insurance companies often unfairly delay payments, deny claims or use other tactics to minimize compensation, at the expense of injured workers.
A Skilled Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Who Focuses On People
At The Wilbers Law Firm LLC, in St. Louis, we focus on people. We fight to help workers get all of the benefits they are entitled to receive. An insurer can claim you haven’t been injured or that the injury you’ve suffered isn’t serious enough to qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. If this is the case, you may stand to lose critical benefits, including financial assistance, medical care coverage and job retraining. If you have been injured at work, we are here to level the field to help you get the medical care and compensation you need.
The types of benefits available under Missouri workers’ compensation include:
- Medical expenses – Pays for the medical care necessary to treat a work-related injury or illness
- Permanent disability – Replaces a portion of wages a worker loses because of a work-related injury or illness
- Income – Replaces a portion of any wages a worker loses due to a work-related injury or illness
- Survivors benefits – Compensates the family for the death of an employee killed on the job
