Schedule a No-Cost Consultation

Meet with one of our attorneys to review your injury, what your employer is doing (if anything), and layout a plan for treatment and temporary benefits if unable to work.

We Prepare Your Case

We order medical records, coordinate depositions, and meet with our experts to document your level of disability and recovery expectations.


We communicate with you throughout the process to review compensation offers, prepare counter-offers, and reach a fair agreement for your injury.

You focus on your physical recovery.

You didn't plan on getting injured at work. You just assumed that your employer would treat you fairly and support you through your recovery, but you weren't prepared to deal with their insurance company (and the insurance company's attorneys).

Recognizing that your work injury has already had a major impact on your life and could get even worse if you don't gain control, you decide to put Webster & Carlton in your corner.

Webster & Carlton works with you to determine fair workers' compensation benefits to help pay for medical benefits (including surgery, rehab, and ongoing medical treatment if needed), wage replacement, and disability.

You, no longer burdened with the worry of being treated unfairly, focus your energy on your recovery.

Depending on the particulars of your injury, our experienced law firm, with offices in Springfield and Joplin, can help you collect appropriate reimbursement through:

Our Focus is Your Advantage

Our firm exclusively practices Missouri workers’ compensation law. That singular focus allows us a depth of experience and knowledge that might not be available at firms that cast a wider net. We know how to fight employers and insurance companies that try to limit what they pay after an employee injury. We handle all sorts of work-related injury claims, including commercial and truck accidents, burning, scarring and disfigurement, fatal accidents, occupational disease, repetitive motion injury, exacerbated pre-existing conditions, and psychological stress.

You Only Pay if We Recover Compensation

We work on contingency, which means you pay us only if we recover compensation in your case. The vast majority of our cases are settled out of court, meaning you’re likely to be spared the stress and hassle of going to trial. When you come in for your free initial consultation, one of our workers' comp lawyers will speak with you in person to help you understand your rights and get the compensation you deserve.
