The law provides certain benefits to workers who have been injured on the job.

Workers Compensation Attorney in St. Louis can help resolve these disputes and get you the benefits you deserve.

At The Gogel Law Firm, our St. Louis Workers Compensation Lawyer is
prepared to take the necessary steps so clients throughout Missouri and Illinois
can receive the benefits they deserve under the law. Workers compensation
laws exists to compensate employees for medical treatment and lost wages
occurring as a result of an injury that is sustained through an accident in the
workplace, a job-related disease or a disability acquired over time that is
caused by working conditions. While your employer may seem eager to help,
it is important to understand that these companies want to restrict benefits
and preserve their bottom lines. One benefit that is often overlooked is the
lump sum payment that many work accident victims are entitled to.
We are committed to seeing that our clients get all compensation, including
these lump sum work disability payments.
In some cases, injured workers may be entitled to more than just workers' compensation. A third-party personal injury claim may be filed if the accident was caused by a party that was not the victim's employer or co-worker. Given our experience, our St. Louis Workers Compensation Attorney can not only seek work comp benefits, on your behalf, but also file and pursue a personal injury lawsuit, too.
An overwhelming majority of workers' compensation cases settle before a hearing
or arbitration, which is essentially just a trial based on the evidence.
Our St. Louis Workers Compensation Attorney will advise you regarding
the risks and benefits of settlement versus the risks and benefits of a hearing.
Your attorney will consider many factors in this evaluation, including the medical
and factual evidence, the cost of further litigation, and the possible outcomes
of a hearing.
