If you’ve been injured on the job, you may be asking yourself the following questions:
- “If I miss work, how will my lost wages be paid?”
- “What medical treatment do I really need, and how will I pay for it?”
- “Am I entitled to a lump-sum monetary award for my injuries?”
Instead of relying on your employer for the answers to these questions, pick up the phone and give us a call. We have workers’ compensation attorneys in St.Louis who can give you the answers and put your mind at ease.
If you have been injured on the job, report the injury to your employer immediately and ask them to provide you with medical treatment. Once you have recovered from your injuries, you may be entitled to additional compensation. Our experienced work comp lawyers in St.Louis, know how to evaluate your case and determine whether the circumstances warrant monetary compensation.
GET THE INCOME YOU LOST
If you have to miss time from work as a result of your work injury, you may be eligible for benefits that replace your wages while you recover. These benefits are calculated using complicated and confusing formulas that even your employer may not know how to calculate properly. We have encountered many instances where the employer has inaccurately calculated these lost wage benefits to the detriment of the injured employee. We will review your medical records and earning records to make sure that you are being compensated properly while you are off work. You will have peace of mind knowing that we are working to maximize your benefits so that you can focus on healing from your injuries.
GET THE MEDICAL CARE YOU NEED
Your employer should send you to its own doctor if you are hurt on the job. However, these same company-employed doctors may downplay a patient’s injuries and disabilities. This can hurt your chance for just compensation. In addition, you may encounter company nurse case managers who take away prescriptions, wheelchairs, and physical therapy. They are trying to save money for the company. Your employer also has its own attorneys giving advice on how to handle your case and minimize what you receive.
To even the odds, you need an attorney to advocate for your rights as an injured worker. That’s where we as experienced workers compensation lawyers in Missouri come in.
We stand up for your right to proper medical treatment. The work comp attorneys at Wolfgram Law will review your medical records and advocate for your case with your employer. This enables us to counter recommendations by a company-employed doctor. Our experience, investigation, and involvement gets you better care and a larger settlement.

GET THE SETTLEMENT YOU DESERVE
Once you have healed from your injury, you may be entitled to compensation for what you have been through and what you may go through in the future. Unfortunately many injuries never fully heal and they can become worse over time. Therefore, make sure to think about the full extent of your injury, how it may follow you for the rest of your life, and let us help you file a claim properly to get you the most appropriate compensation that takes this into account.
TAKE THE FIRST STEP
Never be afraid to exercise your rights. You have a legal right under the law to seek compensation for your work injury, and the law forbids your employer from retaliating against you. Furthermore, if your employer retaliates against you, they’re subject to further damages.
Over the years, we have developed a reputation for fighting hard for our clients. Because of this, company lawyers, judges, doctors, and insurance companies all know that we will fight the rights of an injured worker. Likewise, they know that they face a much tougher battle against someone supported by us than they do against an injured person who stands alone.
Don’t stand alone against your employer. Contact Gil (314-880-2042) right now, and we’ll have your back.
