Worker’s Compensation in Jefferson City, MO
People who are injured at work may be able to recover under Missouri’s Worker’s Compensation laws. The Worker’s Compensation laws specify when a person may file a claim and what rights a person is entitled to.
A person injured at work is not entitled to pursue a personal injury claim like a person injured in a non-work-related car collision. Many people are not familiar with Worker’s Compensation law, don’t fully understand their rights, and accept certain awards of money substantially less than what they might receive through the assistance of a worker’s comp lawyer.
Have you been injured at work?
If you have been injured at work, you should contact a lawyer. Many people think that their employer is going to take care of them and the situation. Missouri law requires that an employer provide the Division of Worker’s Compensation notice of a work-related injury. This does not mean that your employer is taking care of you.
Your employer is not your advocate, but rather the employer has its own legal obligations for which it must comply. While you have certain rights under Missouri law, you should not assume that your employer is protecting your rights. If you want to pursue a claim for financial compensation for the injuries you received, you have an obligation to pursue your own claim.
Why do I need a worker’s comp lawyer?
