Even if you follow safety protocols at your job, there’s still a chance you can get hurt. Workplace injuries can cause pain and leave you unable to do your job for long periods of time. And when you’re not working, you’re not getting the paycheck you depend on to provide for your family.

Workers’ compensation benefits can help you get the money your family needs during this time, but your employer and their insurance company may try to deny you benefits. At Cofman Townsley, our Missouri and Southern Illinois workers’ compensation lawyers are your advocates for getting the benefits you deserve. We’ll stand up to the insurance company and work harder than them to help you win your case. Contact us at (314) 499-1190 or fill out a free contact form.

3 Frequently Asked Workers’ Compensation Questions

If you have questions about workers’ compensation, our attorneys are here to help.

  1. Who is required to carry workers’ compensation coverage? 
    Missouri law requires all employers with five or more employees to carry workers’ compensation insurance. The insurance must cover both full and part-time employees. In addition, all construction companies must carry workers’ compensation insurance, regardless of the number of employees.
  2. What benefits can I receive through workers’ compensation?
    Workers’ compensation benefits can help pay for your medical bills and up to two-thirds of your average weekly wage if your injury causes you to miss more than three days of work. You also may be eligible for additional payments if your injury causes a permanent impairment or disability.
  3. Can my employer fire me for filing a workers’ compensation claim?
    It’s illegal for employers in Missouri to retaliate against workers for filing workers’ compensation claims. If you feel that your employer treated you unfairly after you filed a claim, a St. Louis workers’ compensation lawyer can protect your rights.
