Experienced Missouri Workers' Compensation Lawyers

We serve clients throughout central Missouri and south-central Missouri, and we have the experience needed to handle your claim properly. Our dedicated attorneys will help you with your settlement negotiations and before an Administrative Law Judge or in court if necessary. We work hard to get every client the compensation they deserve.

If you did not receive a fair rating from your employer's preferred physician, we can help you obtain a rating from a doctor who is not being paid by your employer. We can also help you ensure that your benefits are calculated correctly and demonstrate that your personal injury was work-related (an "on-the-job injury").

Steelman, Gaunt & Horsefield handles all work-related injuries resulting in temporary or permanent disability, including:

  • Construction accidents (falls, power tools, lifting injury)
  • Factory accidents (back injury, machinery accidents)
  • Vehicle accidents in the performance of your job (e.g., semi trucks)
  • Repetitive stress injuries (e.g., carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Toxic exposure (e.g., chemicals, mold)

You can't sue your employer for damages in most cases. However, we will explore all avenues of recovery against your employer and 3rd parties. For example, a work related traffic accident may allow you to pursue a 3rd party. Similarly, if your on-the-job injury is related to a defective product (e.g., ladder, machine, tool) you may have a product liability claim against the manufacturer. We provide a free case evaluation.
