Have you been injured at work in Missouri or Illinois? Does the injury prevent you from returning to your job? Your employer may be required to pay for the vocational rehabilitation necessary to get you back to work.
At the law firm of Keefe & Griffiths, P.C. we have helped more than 25,000 injured workers throughout Missouri and Illinois get their necessary medical care and get back to work. If you are hurt so severely that you can never return to work, Keefe & Griffiths, PC knows what steps to take to help you maintain a steady income after a disabling work injury.
The unfortunate reality is that many work-related injuries directly affect parts of the body that are critical to performing job duties. Back injuries often happen in jobs that require constant lifting. Repetitive stress injuries to hands, wrists, elbows or shoulders often happen in jobs that require constant arm movements. If a doctor decides that you are no longer able to return to your previous line of work, vocational rehabilitation can be ordered in Illinois and may be offered in Missouri.
Vocational rehabilitation can be time consuming — time during which you are not earning an income. Fortunately, you may be able to receive lost wage benefits from your Illinois or Missouri employer during your rehabilitation period. With a history of more than 60 years helping injured employees, you can be confident that our firm will help you explore all possible options to pursue the workers' compensation benefits you deserve.
The size of an opponent makes no difference to us. We have successfully taken on most of the major employers in Missouri and Illinois. Our workers' compensation attorneys, located in St. Louis but working throughout Illinois and Missouri, will see that you are treated fairly.
