Jefferson County Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Workers’ Compensation

When a worker is injured on the job, it affects not only the individual worker, but also his or her family. A work-related injury can place significant financial and emotional burdens on a family as well. When a worker is killed on the job, families reel under the financial pressure – especially if they have lost their primary or sole breadwinner. If you have been injured, or, if you have lost a loved one in a Missouri work-related accident, please contact an experienced Missouri workers’ compensation attorney to better understand your legal rights and options.

Common Injuries Suffered On the Job

The majority of work related injuries (91.7 percent) involved injuries to multiple body parts. The most common work injuries involve the back, arms, shoulder and knees. These types of injuries commonly occur as a result of lifting, pushing and pulling heavy items in manual labor jobs. That does not mean, however, that workers cannot experience these types of injuries at any workplace. A serious injury can occur anywhere and it is important that an injured worker is provided proper medical care and time away from work to heal.

Filing a Workers Compensation Claim in Jefferson County

Every case is different, but in general it is important to file a claim right away because the claim process can take many months to go through. In fact, the Division of Labor reported that claims that resulted in awards take significantly longer than those that are dismissed. The average claim process for work related injuries broke down in the year 2010 as follows:

  • Awards: 45 months from date the claim was filed to date of resolution
  • Settlements: 22 months for the claim process to complete
  • Dismissals: 27 months for a claim to be officially denied
