Workers' Compensation

I have represented injured employees in their workers’ compensation claims against employers and insurance companies since 1987. During that period of time I have settled and tried numerous cases on behalf of my clients in both Illinois and Missouri.

In Illinois I have represented clients with claims venued on workers’ compensation dockets throughout Central and Southern Illinois, including Belleville, Carlinville, Collinsville, Decatur, Jacksonville, Springfield, Whittington/Herrin.

In Missouri I have represented clients with claims venued on workers’ compensation dockets throughout the state, including St. Louis City/County, St. Charles County, Boone County, Dent County, Iron County, Lewis County, Lincoln County, Linn County, Macon County, Reynolds County, Shannon County, Warren County, Cape Girardeau, Columbia, Crystal City, Farmington, Joplin, Lebanon, Neosho, Rolla, Springfield, and West Plains.

I have handled a wide variety of clients’ cases with injuries including:

  • Herniated disks in the neck and back
  • Rotator cuff tears in the shoulder
  • Fractured bones
  • Meniscal and ligament tears in the knee
  • Knee/Hip replacements
  • All types of overuse syndrome including carpal tunnel syndrome and cubital tunnel syndrome, lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
  • Amputations
  • Death cases

In order to recover workers' compensation benefits after a work accident the injured employee must comply with certain statutory requirements. Failure to comply with those statutory requirements could result in a denial of workers' compensation benefits. Consultation with an attorney soon after an employee has been injured in a work accident can help the employee determine their rights and responsibilities.
