Getting Truly Adequate Compensation After A Work Injury In Missouri
Workers’ compensation was designed to protect injured workers and their families. It is basically a claim against your employer’s insurance so that your medical costs and much of your lost work time are paid for.
Not sure if what happened to you qualifies? At Christopher Stokes, Attorney at Law in St. Louis, I offer a free consultation so that you can understand if you have a claim and what to do next. You never pay for my services unless I take your case and attain compensation for you.
Why Hire An Attorney?
As an experienced attorney focused on personal injury and workers’ compensation, I have a deep understanding of how these claims work. I will pursue everything you are due, not just the minimum. I want you to be taken care of as much as the law provides.
Missouri workers’ compensation claims are complex. It can be very difficult to navigate the system if you are not an attorney. I will explain what your rights are and the best way to move forward. I will take on the matter and deal with your employer and the insurance company for you. When the other parties realize that you have the benefit of legal representation, they typically do not try to do anything unlawful or prohibited. This is sadly not always the case for people who do not have an attorney on their side.
