Keefe & Griffiths, PC, with our 60 years of experience, handling tens of thousands of cases, can often persuade the insurance company that it is in their best interest to get you the best care possible.
There is an advantage in limiting our practice to work injuries. Keefe & Griffiths, PC has gained expertise in the anatomy and physiology of injuries. You need an attorney who knows the difference between a meniscus and a synovium, why the company doctor’s report is wrong and someone who can effectively cross-examine the insurance company’s orthopedic specialist whose testimony hurts your case.
Injuries to a joint, such as a knee or ankle, can later cause additional problems. An injured joint is more likely to develop arthritis later in life. It may also cause a change in the way you walk or do things and thus cause injury in another part of your body. An experienced attorney understands this and will make it part of your case.
If we win your knee or shoulder injury case, our fee will be based on a percentage of the compensation we recover for you. Call our St. Louis law firm at 314-241-7243 or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation.
Knee, shoulder, ankle and other joint injuries not only hurt but can be debilitating. Sometimes the employee thinks “it’s just a sprain” or that it will “get better on its own.” Often, that turns out not to be the case.
Joints in the human body are particularly complex and often require treatment by not just an orthopedic specialist but also one who specializes in that part of the body. Yet, it is cheaper for the insurance company to keep you in the hands of an occupational medicine doctor.
