Why Hire a Lawyer?

Receive the Compensation You Deserve

If you have had a work-related injury, accident or occupational disease you are entitled to benefits from Workers' Compensation. An experiencedattorney from our firm knows the laws that apply to Missouri and assists injured workers in seeking the benefits they are entitled to receive. The Missouri laws are there to protect employees and their dependents if a work-related injury, illness or death occurs.

How the laws are applied and what exactly you are entitled to is an important matter. Our legal team provides the skilled representation needed in seeking fair compensation after a work-related injury or for families who lost a loved one in a tragic case of death that occurred at work.

In some cases, the employer will deny that you were injured on the job or the insurance company will deny your benefits. Frequently valid claims are denied or certain medical treatments or rehabilitation is not paid as they should be.

At Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC, we are a family oriented practice that understands how getting injured on the job can affect you and your loved ones and that is why we work hard to see that you receive the care and attention you deserve.

Work with Meyerkord & Meyerkord

In an ideal world, you would promptly receive the medical attention and financial benefits you need if you become injured or have an accident on the job. Chapter 287 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri gives the obligation and rights of an employer in a workers' compensation case.

If there are five or more employees at your work, or if you are in the construction industry and have only one employee, Missouri law requires that your employer provide proper protections for you as an employee. Sometimes, an employer will try to send incomplete or biased information to the insurance company in an attempt to deny you fair benefits. The insurance company may file a notice of denial stating that they are disputing a part or the entirety of your claim.

Avoiding serious problems with your claim and ensuring that you have claimed every possible benefit you are due under law is important and our legal team can help!

Depending on your claim, you may be entitled to medical treatment, wages for the time you are off from work, a settlement or payment for partial or permanent disability and other benefits. WE feel that you need to know your legal rights.

With over 100 years of combined legal experience Meyerkord & Meyerkord stands ready to assist you and your family. Contact our firm as soon as possible to speak with an attorney and receive a free case evaluation.
