Did you know that in 2005 Missouri passed a law that requires Judges to approve a Workers’ Compensation settlement, even if the settlement is completely unfair? That’s right, in 2005, the insurance lobbyist got a new law passed which prevents Judges from telling an unrepresented, injured worker, that the settlement they are being offered is totally unfair. The insurance companies know this and are now using the new law to settle Workers’ Compensation cases for substantially less than they know the cases are worth. If you or a family member has been injured at work, chances are you need a Workers’ Compensation attorney to make sure you receive a fair settlement. Call the McDuffey & Medcalf Law Firm, LLC for a free consultation about the value of your Workers’ Compensation case.

If you are injured at work and are having problems with your claim, our team of workers’ compensation lawyers can help you with your claim.

Client Testimonials

Michael – Laquey, MO
“Thank you so much for your service. I agree with the word recorded at Proverbs 22:29. “Do you see someone skilled at their work? They will serve before kings. Thanks again.”

Ky – Lake Ozarks, MO
“I thought about handling my workers’ compensation case on my own. I knew Tim from high school. Since the consultation was free I sat down with him to discuss my case. I almost settled my case for $12,000.00. Instead, Tim helped me on my case. I got on Social Security Disability and, on top of that received a $60,000.00 settlement on my workers’ compensation case. It was amazing. Tim told me during the very first meeting what was going to happen and it was amazing to watch him skillfully get that done over the course of the case.”

Leray – Climax Springs, MO
“I was referred to Tim by a friend. At first, I was hesitant to speak to an attorney. Once I sat down with Tim, he explained to me that I had three separate cases. One for workers’ compensation, one against the person who caused the accident and an underinsured motorist claim against my own insurance policy. Tim got me a settlement against the lady who hit me and a settlement with my insurance. He also got me permanent total disability benefits on my workers’ compensation case. I get a check every week form Work Comp and think of Tim every time I receive it. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate Tim at a 15.”
