Work-related injuries and occupational illnesses can happen in any job. When they do, workers’ compensation benefits in Missouri can provide a lifeline, helping to ensure you and your family are taken care of.

With over 45 years combined legal experience, we are dedicated to helping you get the benefits you need to recover.

Defending Your Rights When Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses Occur

According to the Missouri Department of Labor (DOL), more than 50,000 on-the-job injuries and illnesses occur each year in our state. These can cause workers to be away from the job for weeks at a time and may result in permanent disabilities. In these cases, workers’ compensation benefits can help offset the financial losses you suffer, while helping to ensure you get the medical care and treatment you need.

At The Law Firm of Webster & Carlton, we know how confusing it can be to file a workers’ compensation claim and how often they end up being denied, delayed, or disputed. Our Lawrence County workers’ comp lawyers defend the rights of clients, helping them get the benefits they are entitled to for the following:

  • Slip, trip, and fall injuries;
  • Being struck by or against objects and machinery;
  • Truck and motor vehicle transportation accidents;
  • Injuries caused by defective materials and tools;
  • Overuse and repetitive strain injuries;
  • Occupational illnesses due to exposure to harmful substances or situations;
  • On the job violence, either due to coworkers, customers, or clients.

We are Dedicated to Helping You Get the Benefits You Deserve

When even a minor on-the-job accident occurs, it can leave you suffering serious harm. In addition to impacting your ability to work or perform certain tasks on your job, it can affect your home life while resulting in heavy medical debts.

As Lawrence County workers’ comp lawyers with more than 45 years combined experience, our legal team can help you get the benefits you are entitled to through the Division of Workers Compensation (DWC). These may include:

  • Reimbursement for lost wages;
  • Coverage of medical expenses;
  • Payments for partial disabilities that prevent you from performing certain tasks on your job;
  • Payments for disabilities that prevent you from returning to work, now or in the years to come.

In the tragic event a job related injury or illness proves fatal, workers’ compensation provides death benefits which can help your family in the aftermath.

  • Why Do I Need a Missouri Workers’ Compensation Attorney?
    A workers’ compensation claim can take several months, even years, to resolve, especially if you continue to suffer from the effects of your work-related injury. Your employer and its insurance company will be represented by highly skilled attorneys who know how to exploit an injured employee. You need to level the playing field by hiring a Missouri workers’ compensation lawyer who will fight on your behalf.
  • What Happens If My Employer Denies Me Workers’ Compensation Benefits?
    In many cases, your employer or their insurance company will promptly pay any workers’ compensation benefits. But if they deny benefits–or stop paying them before you receive what you believe you are entitled to under the law–then you have the right to file a claim with the Missouri Division of Workers’ Compensation. An administrative law judge appointed by the Division will review your claim and either conduct mediation between you and your employer, or alternatively hold a formal hearing to determine your right to compensation.
  • What Kinds of Injuries Are Covered?

    Under Missouri law, workers’ compensation only covers injuries that arise “out of and in the course of employment.” This includes accidents that occur during your work shift. It also includes “occupational diseases” contracted at work, provided workplace exposure was the “prevailing” cause.

    Workers’ compensation is not necessarily limited to injuries suffered at your normal workplace. If your job requires you to travel–i.e., make deliveries or conduct on-site work with clients–you may be compensated for injuries sustained in the course of such travel. However, Missouri workers’ compensation law specifically excludes injuries sustained while commuting from home to work and back, even if you use a company-owned car.
