Workers’ Compensation & Third-Party Claims
In general, if you get hurt at work, you will be pursuing workers’ compensation to help pay for your bills and medical costs. If your employer’s insurance provider does not approve of your claim, you will have a workers’ compensation claim on your hands. Our attorneys in Springfield, MO are well-equipped to manage such cases.
However, some work injuries are caused by a third-party, like a customer, vendor, or anyone else not employed for your company. What can you do in such situations? You may be able to file for workers’ compensation with your employer and file a personal injury claim against the negligent party that caused your injuries. The objective of your civil suit should be to recover whatever damages were not covered in your workers’ compensation claim, such as your emotional trauma or lessened standard of living due to the injury.

To make the whole process of pursuing compensation easier on our clients, our Springfield work injury lawyers proudly offer free initial consultations.
