When You've Been Injured At Work

If you have been injured while at work, you should be entitled to benefits under the Missouri workers' compensation system. Unfortunately, the system does not work as smoothly as it should, and employers and their insurance companies often resist giving injured workers the full benefits they need.

When you get help from a workers' compensation attorney, you greatly improve your chances that you will get the full amount of benefits you deserve.

At Pettit & Cowherd Injury Law, our experienced lawyers help injured workers and their families at many points in the workers' compensation process, assisting them with the paperwork of initial claims, representing them at hearings and arguing on their behalf with insurance companies and more.

Experienced Help For The Injured

Our law firm is headquartered in Monett, Missouri, and we represent people throughout Barry and Lawrence counties with a wide variety of issues in personal injury law and workers' compensation, including:

  • Construction accidents
  • Industrial accidents
  • Ladder falls
  • Head injuries
  • Forklift accidents
  • Lower back injury
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Wrongful death

Our attorneys have been representing the injured for years, and in that time, they have developed good working relationships with medical professionals who can give clients second opinions, offer medical advice and, if necessary, testify as witnesses. The help of these health care providers can be invaluable in helping clients get the benefits they need.

Get Started

After you have been injured on the job, your first priority, of course, is to get to safety. As soon as possible, you must report your injury to your employer and seek out the treatment authorized by your employer.

At the same time, it can be important to speak to a lawyer to document your case and make sure you are getting adequate care. Should your employer's authorized care and benefits prove insufficient, a lawyer can help by arguing on your behalf.

Your employer will have an attorney. You should have one, too.
