Trial-Ready Attorneys in St. Louis

What Should I Do if I Suffer a Workplace Injury?

If you have been seriously injured due to a workplace accident, you will inevitably have to deal with an experienced insurance adjuster. Missouri workers’ compensation law is complex, and full of legal technicalities and loopholes. Although not every workplace accident requires the services of an attorney, you should still consider speaking to an experienced legal professional about how to handle your injury claim.

At Buchanan, Williams, & O'Brien, P.C., we have been representing injured workers in Missouri for more than 35 years. As personal injury attorneys with over 50 years of experience, we understand how to locate the strengths and weaknesses of our clients’ cases and how to secure favorable outcomes. In fact we have helped clients obtain multiple settlements in excess of a million dollars.

Our friendly legal team offers free case evaluations for injured workers who are looking to file workers’ compensation claims. If you hire our firm, we will represent you on a contingency fee basis, which means you don’t have to pay a penny unless we successfully recover money or benefits for you.

If you are an employee working in the state of Missouri and you suffer an injury on the job, here are some things you need to do:

  • Report the accident to your employer as soon as possible.
  • Write down how the accident happened while the details are still fresh in your mind.
  • See your doctor as soon as possible and tell him or her that you were injured. Make sure to inform them of any injury symptoms you experience.
  • Do not sign any documents from the employer or the insurance company without talking to an attorney about it first. Signing a document might result in you giving up important rights and legal protections.
  • Call an experienced lawyer who has a background handling workers’ compensation cases.
