Representation for Injured Missouri Workers
If you were injured while on the job or exposed to an occupational disease, you likely are covered for workers’ compensation benefits under Missouri law. The law requires that employers with five or more employees have workers’ compensation insurance coverage. This coverage provides financial benefits to help you at a time when you are under stress from your injury or disease and unable to work. It allows you to collect these benefits without having to prove negligence on the part of your employer.

Workers’ Compensation Cases in Missouri
The Law Offices of Justin L. Mason, LLC handles all types of issues and concerns related to workers’ compensation including:
Seeking workers’ compensation is an administrative process mandated under Missouri law. It can be difficult to obtain full benefits due to an employer’s insurer working to minimize your claim. Insurance companies are generally not interested in your best interests—they only want to preserve their profitability, which is why it is important to learn your legal rights and work with an attorney who will fight for you.
Under workers’ compensation, benefits include reimbursement for:
- All the medical bills related to your injury or illness
- A portion of your lost wages
- Permanent disability or disfigurement
In order to prevail in any workers’ compensation claim, you must comply with certain deadlines, and the injury or illness must have occurred due to performing work duties, not in some other capacity, during meals, or at a time when you were not working.
