Work Comp Victory: From Denied Claim to Large Settlement

Work Comp Victory: From Denied Claim to Large Settlement

Missouri workers’ compensation laws are stacked in the favor of employers and their insurers and stacked against injured workers. This imbalance of justice is why we are so passionate about protecting the benefits of people who are hurt on the job. Missourians all too often find themselves with a denied claim after being injured in a workplace accident. In these cases, the employer/insurer usually tries to claim that the injury existed prior to the accident. If you have been hurt while at work and your work comp claim has been denied by your employer, you need to consult with an experienced worker’s compensation attorney as soon as possible.

In Sherri’s case, her workers’ compensation claim was initially denied. After years of getting the run around from her employer/insurer, Sherri hired St. Louis workers’ compensation lawyer Mark Cantor of Cantor and Associate to represent her case. At first, the employer/insurer wanted to settle Sherri’s case for a small amount of money. Mark strongly believed that Sherri should be afforded a larger settlement due to her permanent and total disability. He filed a lawsuit and proceeded to fight for her case in court. Sherri’s case settled for a large lump sum the day of trial. Mark was able to protect Sherri’s Social Security Disability benefits while obtaining the workers’ compensation settlement. Sherri can now use the money to help take care of her future medical needs. Watch as Mark and Sherri share the story of her case below:
