Your employer is not paying you enough already, and that is even more true when you are injured at work! Everyone deserves to be paid fairly after a work injury and to be free from injury in the workplace. However, accidents happen in every type of environment and injuries in the workplace are a harsh reality of life. If you have an injury at work, even if you caused your own injury by lifting too much or falling, or whatever the case is, it is the responsibility of your employer to cover all of your authorized medical bills, two thirds (2/3) of your lost wages up to the max rate, and a tax free lump sum settlement for permanent and partial disability, or weekly benefits for life if permanently and totally disabled. Cantor Injury Law literally has made the law for Work Injuries in Missouri by fighting and winning huge amounts of money in work comp, and although we handle all types of car collisions and other injuries, we have the reputation of regularly trying and winning cases at The Division of Workers’ Compensation.
The only way to secure these benefits is through a workers’ compensation claim. It is in your best interest to get a skilled St. Louis workers’ compensation lawyer on your side during this process to ensure that you are getting the full range of benefits that could be owed to you. Unlike many lawyers that say they handle these cases but have never tried a case in work comp, Mark Cantor is a recognized leader in workers’ compensation and routinely tries and wins these cases. He has tried and won some of the largest awards and sanctions in the entire state, and made favorable case law for injured claimants regularly over the last 25 years. He is in court nearly every day for injured claimants and knows exactly what to do to win. Just ask him!
Cantor Injury Law regularly tries Missouri Workers’ Compensation cases. We handle the case from the very beginning aggressively and plan on a hearing, rather than a settlement, because that increases the value of our Clients’ recovery. We fight hard to secure all the money you deserve while you are unable to work because of your work injury, all the medical care you require, and a lump sum for your permanent partial disability or a lifetime of payments for your permanent and total disability (which we sometimes are able to reduce to a lump day present value while you still receive social security payments from the Federal government.) Here are some of our recent successes.
Because Workers’ Compensation cases are not part of the public record, these descriptions are purposely vague with a few exceptions that have either been appealed and are part of the public domain or with our clients’ direction to publish details. We fight hard to protect our clients’ rights and recover money for them, and as you know, everyone wants money so we have changed some information to protect our clients’ privacy and not disclose their information with the ability to identify who they are.
What Do Workers’ Comp Benefits Include?
Depending on the severity of your injury, you could be owed different types of benefits. You are required to timely notify your workplace of the incident and the extent of your injuries. Be careful not to give a recorded statement until you speak with us.
Keep in mind, when it comes to medical bills, there are several things to be aware of:
- You must go through the health care professional your employer selects (In Missouri)
- If you want to see your regular doctor, you may be required to pay out-of-pocket or use your own health insurance.
In addition to medical bills, you may be taking a significant time off of work while you recover. Your employer owes you for this time but frequently will not compensate you fairly without a lawyer helping you.
- You are entitled to two thirds of your paycheck up to the state max rate so say max rate (Mark Cantor made this case law in 2012 in a case called T.H. vs Sonic drive through – where a woman was raped at work)
- These payments will only begin once the employees has missed three consecutive days of work, but they owe it back after 2 weeks.
Finally, most work injuries result in some degree of permanent partial disability. If the injured individual sustained a catastrophic injury that resulted in a loss of limb, traumatic brain injury, loss of vision or hearing, paralysis, or any other permanent condition, you are entitled to a lump sum or weekly payments. In this situation, it is your employer’s doctor who decides the treatment your receive and then issues a biased opinion as to the severity of the injury because they work for the insurance company and employer, so Cantor Injury Law will send you to one of our doctors to level the playing field.
Don’t Take Chances with Your Future
If you are seeking compensation for your injuries, please do not proceed unless you have an experienced lawyer representing you. Insurance companies are notorious for only caring for their own profit, and it is likely that they will attempt to deny you benefits.
