Our client was working as a home health care nurse when she was attacked by a patient. She suffered injuries to her neck and back and she was not able to return to work. Her employer provided some workers’ compensation benefits but claimed her most serious injuries were not work-related.

It’s important to know there is a statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Missouri, speaking with an attorney as soon as possible gives you the best chance of a settlement.

The employer claimed she had pre-existing medical conditions that were causing most of her problems. We hired three experts to support our client, and we prepared the work comp claim for hearing. Before the hearing, we were able to settle the case for $85,000.
