Workers Compensation

Southern Illinois and Missouri Workers' Compensation Lawyers

Many people who are injured at work are reluctant to file a workers' compensation claim because they are afraid their employer will fire them. However, workers in Illinois and Missouri who file injury claims are protected from employer retaliation. At the law firm of Weilmuenster Law Group, P.C. in Belleville, Illinois, our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to explain the workers' compensation process and the benefits you are entitled to.

While many workers' compensation claims involve people who work with their hands and back, all types of workers can suffer work injuries. Our lawyers represent police officers, office workers, construction workers and factory workers who suffer:

  • Repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Injuries from falls
  • Amputations and other injuries occurring on the job
  • Back injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Hand injuries
  • Occupational illness caused by exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Car and truck accident injuries that occur on the job

Our lawyers handle all workers' compensation cases on a contingency fee basis. We regularly represent clients who file claims in the Belleville, Collinsville, Wittington, Carlyle and Mt. Vernon, Illinois workers' compensation dockets, as well as City of St. Louis, Missouri, workers' compensation docket.

Obtain the full workers' compensation benefits you deserve

Many people who are injured on the job start out handling their own claim and don't contact a lawyer until the insurance company stops paying their medical bills and wage replacement benefits. There are many reasons, however, to obtain a lawyer's help from the beginning of your case:

  • A lawyer can help you document your injuries to keep your workers' comp benefits coming as long as you are injured.
  • A lawyer can help you obtain a fair lump-sum payment for any permanent injury you suffer.
  • A lawyer can evaluate your injury case to see if a third party (someone other than your employer) is responsible for your injury.

If you are injured by a third party (such as a vendor, a subcontractor or the other driver in a car accident), you may be able to obtain significantly more compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the third party.

Some case examples:

1. $200,000.00 workers' compensation settlement on behalf of injured construction worker who sustained significant injuries to her foot/ankle.

2. $200,000.00 workers' compensation settlement on behalf of injured iron worker who sustained significant injuries to his back.

3. $180,000.00 workers' compensation verdict on behalf of injured retail salesperson who sustained significant injuries to her back and neck.

4. $120,000.00 workers' compensation settlement on behalf of injured maintenance worker who sustained significant injuries to his back and neck.
