“Who Will Look Out For Me?”
Whether you love your job or it is simply a means to an end the last thing you want is to get injured at work. A workplace injury can be very stressful, especially if it leaves you unable to work; your day-to-day routine can quickly be replaced with troubling questions like “how will I pay my bills” and “how will I feed my family?” Not to mention “how will I pay for the medical care I need?”
It is crucial to have an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer on your side. Once you’ve notified your employer of your injury it is in your best interest to discuss your legal options with an attorney equipped to navigate Missouri’s workers’ compensation process. In St. Louis, that means turning to the Law Offices of Gerald V. Tanner, Jr.
Over the years the laws on the books have been tilted in favor of employers and insurance companies, making it more perilous than ever to go it alone after an injury. Having a proven advocate fighting for you make sure you have a seat at the table when decisions are being made about your wellbeing and future. This includes helping you obtain a second opinion from an independent doctor not affiliated with your employer and making sure you have the full care you need to get back on your feet.
Looking to your employer or their insurance company to help in the aftermath of a workplace injury is a recipe for disappointment. When push comes to shove, they are interested in one thing: their bottom line. Your health care, your time off, and other injury-related expenses are an expense on their books they’ll go to great lengths to avoid paying.
