If you have been injured on the job, you should examine and learn about your rights with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. Nearly all Missouri employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance coverage, and many times the employer or the employer’s insurance company is unresponsive or uncooperative to your complaints. There are important deadlines that you must meet to successfully qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, which are governed entirely by Missouri Revised Statutes § 287. Depending on the nature of your case, you may be eligible for temporary disability, permanent disability, past medical care, future medical care, mileage for trips to visit a doctor, and or disfigurement/scarring.
Tymon Bay, of Checkett & Pauly, has experience handling many workers’ compensation cases. Call Checkett & Pauly to schedule a time to meet with Tymon to discuss your rights so that you can develop realistic expectations as to what you are entitled. Tymon will also explain to you the process of how such matters work their way through the Administrative Law Judges of the Missouri Division of Workers’ Compensation. The attorneys at Checkett & Pauly are here to make sure that you can recover from your injury and get back to work without simultaneously having to deal with trying to maximize your recovery under the vast labyrinth that is Chapter 287.
