Protecting Injured Workers In Missouri

If you were injured in a workplace accident or developed a serious illness as a result of your work environment, you may be eligible to seek workers' compensation. Harlan, Harlan & Still can help. Many people find the workers' compensation process complex or daunting. Our Columbia attorneys provide informed guidance and personalized service throughout the process.

What Does Workers' Compensation Cover?

Under Missouri workers' compensation laws, employees who sustain on-the-job injuries or illnesses are entitled to seek medical benefits, income replacement at two-thirds of their weekly pay, and a lump sum payment if their condition results in permanent disability. Unlike personal injury lawsuits, workers' compensation does not include damages for pain and suffering.

Who Qualifies For Workers' Compensation?

Employees from all industries who have been injured in the workplace are entitled to seek workers' compensation. We assist workers who have suffered from:

  • Severe back injuries
  • Wrist and hand injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Injuries from falls
  • Necrosis and other occupational diseases due to toxic exposure
  • Lung problems
  • Loss of limbs
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Head injuries

Your workers' compensation claim can affect other potential benefits claims you may qualify for, such as Social Security Disability (SSD) or long-term disability. Our lawyers provide the comprehensive review needed to maximize your benefits and protect your rights.

What If My Benefits Are Denied?

If your claim is denied, or your benefits are threatened or removed, our Columbia workers' compensation attorneys will help you protect your rights in filing an appeal. We are fully prepared to represent you should your claim proceed to a hearing before an administrative law judge, and in any additional appeals that may be necessary.
