We charge nothing to speak with you if have been injured. Please call us for a free consultation on your injury claim.
On The Job Injuries
If you have been injured on the job, you have certain legal rights. Under the Missouri Worker’s Compensation Act, an employee who’s injured in the course and scope of his or her employment, and arising out of his or her employment, is entitled to certain benefits. Those benefits include payment of medical bills, payment for time off of work if you are disabled, and permanent total or partial disability, depending on the severity of the injury. If you have been injured on the job in any way, please contact us for a free consultation to discuss your legal rights.
Employment Discrimination & Sexual Harassment
If you believe that your employer has taken a negative action against you, which can include transferring you to another position; giving you a bad performance review; or even terminating your employment, and you believe that your being a member of one of the protected classes referenced above played a role in your supervisor’s decision to do so, you may have an employment discrimination case. It is in your best interest to contact an attorney immediately if that situation has occurred as very strict timelines govern this area of law. In employment discrimination claims, you must file a Charge of Discrimination with the Missouri Commission on Human Rights and/or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission within either one hundred eighty (180) or three hundred (300) days of the date you were harassed or discriminated against.
