I have investigated, negotiated and tried hundreds of Missouri Workers' Compensation claims and cases involving injuries including back/neck strains, broken body parts, shoulder injuries, head injuries and psychological injuries. Cases are usually resolved before trial but sometimes require an attorney willing to move past a lowball settlement offer and try the case with a Missouri Administrative Law Judge. Specific case examples:
1. Favorably tried a case to St. Louis Administrative Law Judge for a client who suffered a debilitating low back injury (cauda equina) after falling down at work.
2. Negotiated a significant settlement for a client injured when powdered chemicals became airborne and caused eye injury.
3. Obtained favorable testimony from a treating physician to link a client's low back disc injury to his work activity, not from a pre-existing condition as contended by his insurance carrier.
4. Negotiated hundreds of Compromise Settlements for clients in Missouri workers' compensation cases.
