St. Louis Personal Injury Attorneys
Serving St. Louis, Missouri and Illinois
Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that must be held by every employer in the United States. Workers’ compensation provides you with monetary compensation for losses you suffer as a result of a work-related injury.
-Unlike other personal injury claims, if you suffer a work related injury, you do not need to show that another party’s negligence was the cause of your injury. Workers’ compensation is awarded simply for injuries sustained as a result of your employment. However, if you choose to receive workers’ compensation, then you will no longer be able to file a claim to recover compensation for losses like mental anguish, pain, or suffering. The workers’ compensation attorneys at Brown & Brown are dedicated to offering representation to individuals in St. Louis and Southern Illinois who believe that they have worker’s compensation claims.
Workers’ compensation is not limited to physical injuries sustained while at work; it also covers illnesses and other medical problems that are the direct result of your employment. Workers’ compensation can also be awarded for illnesses or injuries that have not been diagnosed for long periods of time, which often happens with asbestos workers discovering illnesses years after they have stopped working with asbestos. Instead, for most workers’ compensation claims, all you have to do is sign a release saying, in return for your workers’ compensation, you will not file any additional claims against your employer. The St. Louis workers’ compensation attorneys at Brown & Brown can help you make an informed decision about your options as you consider your case.
The amount of workers’ compensation is determined by many different factors, and your employer and their insurance company may try to prevent you from receiving the workers’ compensation you deserve.

Our St. Louis workers’ compensation lawyers will work with your employer and their insurance company to get you the compensation you deserve.
