Workers Compensation

Experienced Workers' Compensation Representation

We represent employees who are injured on the job in claims for temporary and permanent disability benefits and medical treatment expenses against employers and their workers' compensation insurers. Workers' compensation laws vary from state to state, so if you are injured in Missouri you should consult with an attorney familiar with Missouri workers' compensation laws.

At Steelman, Gaunt & Horsefield in Rolla, our lawyers are well-versed in the intricacies of the Missouri workers' comp system, and have the experience necessary 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.

What We Can Do To Help

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").

Our firm 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., semitrucks)
  • 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 third parties. For example, a work-related traffic accident may allow you to pursue a third party. Similarly, if your on-the-job injury is related to a defective product (e.g., ladder, machine, tool) you may have a products liability claim against the manufacturer. We provide a free case evaluation.
