Workers' Compensation Attorney

Our Poplar Bluff Firm Welcomes Uphill Legal Battle

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 3 million people a year are injured in workplace accidents. More than an additional 4,500 fatalities will occur due to on-the-job hazards and negligence. To add insult to injury, individuals who need adequate access to treatment or compensation for their damages face an uphill legal battle, leaving them in a constant state of struggle and hardship.

At Little, Schellhammer, Richardson, and Knowlan Law Offices, P.C., we know employers and their insurance companies are primarily concerned with their profits and not their employees' health. Contrary to what the name may imply, "workers' compensation insurance" is designed to benefit the employer and their interests, and not the worker. Our firm can help you receive the treatment you need to recover.

Dedicated to Personal Injury and Disability

Our firm has more than 120 combined years of legal experience that has been completely dedicated to individuals facing personal injury or disability. This keen focus empowers us with the knowledge and skill necessary to combat the hurdles and diversion tactics employed by companies and their insurances carriers.

Our Poplar Bluff workers' compensation attorneys can provide strategic legal counsel and aggressive litigation to any type of job-related injury, including:

  • Bodily injury
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), including reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD)
  • Partial or complete disability
  • Wrongful death
  • Slips and falls

Perilous Work Environment

Employers are mandated by both state and federal laws to provide a reasonably safe work environment. However, these supposed safe havens can often become perilous due to a company's careless disregard or failure to adequately maintain a secure location.

Our committed team of personal injury lawyers will work tirelessly to help you garner the maximum compensation possible, no matter what the cause of your injury, including:

  • Faulty equipment
  • Improper maintenance
  • Failure to warn of possible hazards
  • Substandard construction
  • Excessive clutter
  • Lack of security

No Recovery, No Fee

We recognized that individuals experiencing personal injury or disability due to a workplace accident often face added monetary burdens. They may be unable to work either temporarily or permanently, creating extreme financial strain. At Little, Schellhammer, Richardson, and Knowlan Law Offices, P.C., we want to alleviate your stress and concerns, not compound them. That's why we operate on contingency and do not accept payment until we have achieved a settlement.

Our workers' compensation attorneys - Ron Little, Jack Knowlan, Sheila Blaylock and Nick Adkins - understand that you may have been let down by someone you trusted to provide support and financial assistance when you needed it most. At Little, Schellhammer, Richardson, and Knowlan Law Offices, P.C., we offer a personalized approach to each of our cases and treat all our clients with honesty and integrity.
