Law Office of Rick Koenig in Sedalia MO Handles Workers' Compensation Cases
Injured on the job? Rick Koenig can help you out when your employer or their insurance company are reluctant to provide proper compensation.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sedalia, MO – March 20, 2017 – Rick Koenig is a Sedalia personal injury attorney whose practice is entirely focused on helping people injured at work or in other accidents caused by the negligence of a third party.
Companies in Missouri are required to carry workers' compensation insurance if they have five or more employees (not all of whom have to be in Missouri or full time) or if they are in the construction industry and employ anyone other than themselves. They are also required to file an injury report within 30 days, which is generally also handled by their insurer.
If somebody has been in an accident, they may be able to receive lost wages and disability benefits - including benefits for both temporary and permanent disability. If an employee dies on the job, then the survivors (usually spouse or dependent children) are entitled to benefits from the insurer, usually two thirds of the weekly wage of the year preceding the accident, as well as funeral expenses. The law in Missouri is complicated, and people should not try to represent themselves in workers' compensation cases.
The best course of action is, in fact, to call a personal injury attorney right after the accident. Rick Koenig offers a free initial consultation and will help determine the merits of the case and the chances of winning. Having a lawyer will often get workers' compensation insurers to take a claim more seriously and not try and ignore it until it goes away.
An attorney familiar with the laws in Missouri can also help you deal with the Second Injury Fund if this should come up (usually uninsured or under insured employers). In other words, anyone injured in an accident on the job should call Rick Koenig for a consultation.
The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisement.
