Worker’s  Compensation

Worker Injury Lawyer

Accidents and injuries on the job occur all too frequently despite the implementation of many regulations and industry standards that mandate certain safety measures at work sites.

If you are hurt on the job, you most likely fall under Missouri Worker’s Compensation and Missouri Second Injury Fund (“Work Comp”) law. Under Workers’ Compensation law, you are entitled to have your medical bills paid, a portion of your wages while you are off work due to the injury, and a lump sum payment for the disability left after your medical care ends. However, workers’ compensation often does not always cover all costs generated by the injuries and damages sustained by victims of accidents at work.

Cases involving workers who are injured or killed are often catastrophic. They may be due to an explosion, collapse, fire, equipment failure or similar hazardous event which takes place at a construction site, mining area, industrial plant, manufacturing facility or other work site location such as a railroad or on a boat.

If you or a loved one has suffered work related injuries, you may be able to obtain financial recovery for medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.  Call the law office of David Schmidt for more information and to speak with Mr. Schmidt directly about your case.
