Seeking Compensation After A Workplace Injury
When you’re injured on the job, it’s important to remember that you have rights. Most people are intimidated at the thought of confronting the company for which they work. However, if you’ve been treated unfairly or are concerned because you do not know what benefits you are entitled to receive, the attorneys at Dull & Heany, LLC, can help. We have helped clients throughout Missouri for over 30 years.
Companies Are Legally Required To Carry Insurance
It is state law that employers must carry workers’ compensation insurance. This means that they are legally responsible for injuries that happen at the workplace. If they don’t have proper coverage, this isn’t your fault. And if they do have proper coverage and aren’t willing to pay, you need the help of an aggressive attorney.
If your organization tries to deny a claim or fires you for filing, they must be held accountable. Compensation under the applicable workers’ compensation law is often complex and it is difficult to receive fair compensation without assistance from experienced legal counsel.
We can help you with your claim from the start and it is often in your best interest to retain an attorney early on after you have been injured. We can also fight for the rights to your job. It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against you for filing for workers’ compensation. The best thing you can do is report the injury as soon as possible. After that, discussing your options with one of our experienced attorneys is in your best interest. It’s important to remember that you do not have to go through this alone. We are here to act as your strongest advocate.
