An injury at work can make it difficult to pay medical bills and support family members who depend on you. 

Dealing with an employer and its insurance company can be overwhelming.  The workers’ compensation lawyers at The Lowry Law Firm can ease the pressure that injured workers face.  We have a strong understanding of Missouri Workers’ Compensation laws and the experience to protect your rights to ensure you can pay bills, support your family, and heal physically.

We have particular expertise in handling complex Workers’ Compensation claims, including those that have been previously denied. We also provide exceptional representation for workers who have suffered catastrophic injuries.

Of primary importance is obtaining proper medical treatment for our clients. We offer a network of specialists who will help ensure the best recovery possible.

As an injured worker, you may be entitled to receive lost wages and necessary medical treatment—including therapy, prescriptions, and medical supplies—required to treat the injuries.

If you are left with permanent disabilities, you also may be entitled to additional compensation.

Commonly Asked Questions & Answers:

What should I do after an accident at work?

If you are injured at work, seek immediate medical attention and attempt to gather as much information as you can – identify witness and obtain their statements, take photos if you have a camera, and make detailed notes about what happened.

What if I do not realize I’m injured until the next day?

Some injuries at work do not immediately produce symptoms. As soon as you realize you have an injury related to an accident at work, seek medical help. It is crucial that medical records document your injury from the earliest possible date.

How soon should I call a workers comp lawyer?

You should consult an attorney as soon as possible after being injured. In most cases there are time limits for filing claims after an injury occurs, and if this deadline passes, your claim could be dismissed. In addition, finding witnesses and gathering evidence to support your case becomes more difficult the longer you wait.

Do I have a case?

Only an experienced injury attorney can assess the facts of your case and determine if you are due compensation. Don’t hesitate to call our office for free consultation. You may have a case, even if another attorney said you did not.

Does it cost me anything to speak to a lawyer?

No. We offer a free initial consultation, during which we will assess your case and discuss all available alternatives.

How much is my case worth?

A host of factors impact the amount of your compensation, including the extent of your injuries, physical and mental pain and suffering, the amount and length of medical treatment, economic hardship or financial loss, decreased earning potential, and physical impairment and/or disfigurement. An experienced personal injury lawyer can best estimate the value of your claim.

How long will it take to conclude my case?

Each case is unique. Generally, your medical treatment should be complete, and all your bills accounted for before a settlement is reached. You have only one chance to settle your case, therefore, it is vital that all future medical expenses be accounted for in any settlement. This could take months or more. If a lawsuit is filed, completion could take years, depending on the complexity of the case and the court docket.

How much will the legal process cost?

If we take your case, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means you owe us nothing unless we recover on your claim. We will be happy to provide you with a complete assessment of what each of your options might cost. This figure will depend on the facts of your case and if a fair settlement is believed possible.
