We Fight Hard for the Benefits You Deserve
The workers' compensation insurance carrier may try to entice you with an early offer of settlement. Don't be fooled. Before settling your workers' compensation claim, it is important to fully understand the nature and extent of your injury. You should receive appropriate medical care and reach your maximum healing before beginning settlement discussions. At Call & Gentry Law Group, we know physicians that can provide an independent evaluation of your injury and a rating of you disability percentage in order to get you the maximum benefit to which you are entitled. While there are many on-the-job injuries, common work injuries that may result in permanent partial disability include:
- Head injury including traumatic brain injury
- Back injury and neck injury
- Shoulder, wrist and arm injury
- Leg injuries including knee injury and ankle injury
- Carpal Tunnel
- Occupational disease
- Construction injury
Workers' Compensation is a no-fault system. This means you do not have to prove your employer was negligent in order to recover, and you can receive benefits even if a work accident was your fault. In addition, if you are injured due to the negligence of a third party (not your employer), you may be entitled to make an additional claim against that person. At Call & Gentry Law Group, we can help you navigate the maze of workers' compensation and make sure that your interests are protected.
Get Help with Your Work Injury
Changes to Missouri Workers' Compensation Law in 2005 have made it much harder on Missouri workers. The law has made it more difficult to prove your claim and it is more important than ever to have an attorney fighting for you. Without representation by a qualified attorney, insurance carriers may drag their feet, deny you medical care, and pay you less than you are entitled for work injury disability. For severe injuries, you may become totally disabled and require assistance with social security applications, appeals or even long term disability insurance claims.
Our team at Call & Gentry Law Group can help reduce the stress of this process by coordinating benefits from Social Security, workers' compensation and long-term disability plans. The coordination of these claims can be confusing and complicated. We can help you manage your claims to ensure you receive maximum compensation from all sources.
