Put 100+ Years of Experience on Your Side

Workplace accidents – particularly in industrial areas – are all too common and often result in serious and lifelong injuries. Employers are responsible for providing a work environment that is free of hazards and other dangerous conditions. As such, if you have been injured, you are entitled to obtain workers’ compensation benefits regardless of who was at fault.

Serving Aurora, Monett and Mt. Vernon and the surrounding areas, Pettit & Cowherd Law Firm provides representation for workers’ compensation claims throughout Southwest Missouri. Our lawyers have over 100 years of combined experience, allowing us to handle even the most complex claims.

We routinely handle workplace injury cases involving:

  • Industrial accidents
  • Burns
  • Chemical exposure
  • Serious head injuries
  • Amputation
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Back injuries
  • Slip and falls
  • Knee and leg injuries
  • Shoulder and arm injuries

Seek the Compensation You Deserve

Often, workers are hesitant to report work injuries because they are concerned about how their employers will react. You should know that if you decide to report a work injury and you apply for workers’ compensation, it is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you.

When seeking workers’ compensation benefits, it is important to retain the services of a skilled Aurora, Monett and Mt. Vernon workers’ compensation lawyer who has extensive experience with these types of cases. Otherwise, an attorney with less skill may encourage you to accept a lower benefit settlement than you are entitled to or miss important aspects of your case, such as the possibility for second injury fund claims or the possibility of pursuing a third-party claim.

Our attorneys not only have years of experience with workers’ compensation cases, but they also are native to Southwest Missouri and are well-known in the community. They have a familiarity with local courts and procedures and know how to keep a compensation claim moving through the legal process.
