Mark Cantor and Cantor Injury Law are recognized leaders in Missouri Worker's
Compensation litigation. We have a winning reputation because we routinely
take work injury case to trial and win. In fact, we have set case law
in Missouri for work injury victims and have won some of the largest awards
in Missouri history. We don't advertise for work injury cases on television
or billboards because other lawyers send us these cases because even our
competitors know that we know how to win.
Your employer is not paying you enough already, and that is even more true
when you are injured at work! Everyone deserves to be paid fairly after
a work injury and to be free from injury in the workplace. However, accidents
happen in every type of environment and
injuries in the workplace are a harsh reality of life. If you have an injury at
work, even if you caused your own injury by lifting too much or falling,
or whatever the case is, it is the responsibility of your employer to
cover all of your authorized medical bills, two thirds (2/3) of your lost
wages up to the max rate, and a tax free lump sum settlement for permanent
and partial disability, or weekly benefits for life if permanently and
totally disabled. Cantor Injury Law literally has made the law for Work
Injuries in Missouri by fighting and winning huge amounts of money in
work comp, and although we handle all types of car collisions and other
injuries, we have the reputation of regularly trying and winning cases
at The Division of Workers' Compensation.
The only way to secure these benefits is through a workers' compensation
claim. It is in your best interest to get a skilled St. Louis personal
injury lawyer on your side during this process to ensure that you are
getting the full range of benefits that could be owed to you. Unlike many
lawyers that say they handle these cases but have never tried a case in
work comp, Mark Cantor is a recognized leader in workers' compensation
and routinely tries and wins these cases. He has tried and won some of
the largest awards and sanctions in the entire state, and made favorable
case law for injured claimants regularly over the last 25 years. He is
in court nearly every day for injured claimants and knows exactly what
to do to win. Just ask him!
Cantor Injury Law regularly tries Missouri Workers' Compensation cases.
We handle the case from the very beginning aggressively and plan on a
hearing, rather than a settlement, because that increases the value of
our Clients' recovery. We fight hard to secure all the money you deserve
while you are unable to work because of your work injury, all the medical
care you require, and a lump sum for your permanent partial disability
or a lifetime of payments for your permanent and total disability (which
we sometimes are able to reduce to a lump day present value while you
still receive social security payments from the Federal government.) Here
are some of our recent successes.
Because Workers' Compensation cases are not part of the public record,
these descriptions are purposely vague with a few exceptions that have
either been appealed and are part of the public domain or with our clients’
direction to publish details. We fight hard to protect our clients’
rights and recover money for them, and as you know, everyone wants money
so we have changed some information to protect our clients' privacy
and not disclose their information with the ability to identify who they are.
Mark Cantor is a recognized authority in Missouri Workers Compensation
and has made excellent precedential case law for injury victims.

What Do Workers' Comp Benefits Include?
Depending on the severity of your injury, you could be owed different types
of benefits. You are required to timely notify your workplace of the incident
and the extent of your injuries. Be careful not to give a recorded statement
until you speak with us.
Keep in mind, when it comes to medical bills, there are several things
to be aware of:
- You must go through the health care professional your employer selects
- If you want to see your regular doctor, you may be required to pay out-of-pocket
or use your own health insurance.
In addition to medical bills, you may be taking a significant time off
of work while you recover. Your employer owes you for this time but frequently
will not compensate you fairly without a lawyer helping you.
- You are entitled to two thirds of your paycheck up to the state max rate
so say max rate (Mark Cantor made this case law in 2012 in a case called
T.H. vs Sonic drive through - where a woman was raped at work)
- These payments will only begin once the employees has missed three consecutive
days of work, but they owe it back after 2 weeks.
Finally, most work injuries result in some degree of permanent partial
disability. If the injured individual sustained a catastrophic injury
that resulted in a loss of limb, traumatic brain injury, loss of vision
or hearing, paralysis, or any other permanent condition, you are entitled
to a lump sum or weekly payments. In this situation, it is your employer's
doctor who decides the treatment your receive and then issues a biased
opinion as to the severity of the injury because they work for the insurance
company and employer, so Cantor Injury Law will send you to one of our
doctors to level the playing field. (See Mark Cantor's blog about
the Workers' compensation conspiracy which is basically that you don't
stand a chance against the large insurer, the biased company doctor, and
the employer without a very strong and smart lawyer.)
Don't Take Chances with Your Future
If you are seeking compensation for your injuries, please do not proceed
unless you have an experienced lawyer representing you. Insurance companies
are notorious for only caring for their own profit, and it is likely that
they will attempt to deny you benefits.
