When you are injured at work, you expect that your employer will want to help take care of you and your family. However, your employer likely has an insurance company or third-party adjusters to limit your recovery. It is imperative that you talk to a workers' compensation attorney immediately to insure that you are getting the proper care, treatment and pay while you are off work due to a workplace injury.
While worker's compensation laws can help you recover part of your losses, they are not necessarily meant to make you completely whole. Your recoveries are limited in several respects. As a result, if you have been severely injured or a loved one has been killed at work, there may be other avenues of recovery from the persons or corporations that caused the injury.
St. Louis personal injury attorney Ryan Furniss has handled products liability and negligence actions for persons severely burned by bursting pipes, severe orthopedic injuries due to malfunctioning equipment, and for wrongful deaths at industries including conveyor belt accidents.
