Overview

W. Morris Taylor, P.C., is a boutique litigation firm representing clients throughout Missouri, including the St. Louis and St. Charles areas, who have been seriously injured in the workplace. We handle all workers’ compensation matters (sometimes called workman’s compensation or workers comp).

Our St. Louis workers compensation attorneys understand the workers compensation laws, the workers compensation process, and issues regarding injury and disability. Many work injuries are serious. Some cause permanent disability (either permanent total disability or permanent partial disability). However, most people don’t understand the process or their rights when they are injured.

Whether you were injured at the workplace or while performing a job related function off-site, such as driving a delivery truck, doing work out in the field, or traveling on business, you may be entitled to workers compensation.

In 2005, the Missouri legislature made substantial and sweeping changes to Missouri's Workers Compensation statute. At W. Morris Taylor, P.C., our lawyers can help you with completing and filing your initial paperwork, with your formal claim, work with your doctor during medical treatment, assist you in trial to determine if you sustained a temporary disability or a permanent disability, and handle any necessary appeals.

Our St. Louis workers compensation attorneys can also assist with any personal injury claims against others who are not your employer, for example, injuries at work because of defective machinery or defective tools or an auto accident while running a work-related errand.

Our firm has the advantage of understanding the big picture, because we can handle both claims, the workers’ compensation claim and the personal injury claim. We can help you get the maximum recovery for your injuries.

For assistance with your legal matter, we invite you to call on our trial attorneys to ascertain how the law firm of W. Morris Taylor, P.C., can put over 80 combined years of legal experience to work for you, call us at (314) 725-7000, or contact us online.
