Workers’ Comp Lawyer

Have you sustained an injury at work? Missouri employees who are injured on the job are entitled to seek benefits under Missouri’s Workers’ Compensation laws. Pettit Law Office will see you through every aspect of seeking and obtaining Workers’ Compensation benefits.


Workplace accidents, particularly in industrial areas, are all too common and often result in serious and lifelong injuries. Employers are responsible for providing a work environment that is free of hazards and other dangerous conditions. As such, if you have been injured, you are entitled to obtain workers’ compensation benefits regardless of who was at fault.

Based in Aurora, Pettit Law Office provides representation for workers’ compensation claims throughout Southwest Missouri, including Barry County, Lawrence County, Stone County, Newton County, Jasper County, Christian County and Greene County. Our workers’ comp lawyers have over 100 years of combined experience, allowing us to handle even the most complex claims.


Often, workers are hesitant to report work injuries because they are concerned about how their employers will react. However, if you decide to report a work injury, and you apply for workers’ compensation it is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you.


When seeking workers’ compensation benefits, it is important to retain the services of an injury lawyer who has extensive experience with these types of cases. Otherwise, an attorney with less skill may encourage you to accept a lower benefit settlement than you are entitled to or miss important aspects of your case, such as the possibility for second injury fund claims or the possibility of pursuing a third-party claim.
