Injury on the Job/Workers’ Compensation


When you are hurt on the job – whether in Illinois or Missouri – you may be entitled to payment for your medical bills, payment for time you missed work, and a lump sum settlement for the permanency of your injuries. Often (at the time when you are hurting most and unable to work) your employer and its insurance company will try and prevent you from receiving the treatment and compensation you deserve.

If you are hurt on the job, you should contact an attorney immediately. There are strict time limits involved in reporting and filing your claim.

Often people are worried about filing a claim against their employer. It is illegal for an employer to fire you or retaliate against you for filing a workers’ compensation claim.

The attorneys at Rick Reed’s office are available to help you understand your rights regarding any type of injury while working- whether in Illinois or Missouri. Please contact the attorneys at one of our eight office locations for a free consultation.
