Workers' Compensation

Lee's Summit Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Independence Work Injury Attorney

At the Law Offices of Gerald W. Furnell, LLC, we represent injured people throughout Missouri in matters of workers' compensation. Our legal team, which includes attorney Gerald Wayne Furnell and his support staff, handles workers' compensation claims from the initial work injury through settlement.

If you have been injured on the job, we recommend that you seek an attorney's counsel as soon as possible instead of trying to handle matters on your own. Work injuries make employees vulnerable, and employers often end treatment before workers make full recoveries. In this situation, if you are not represented by an experienced lawyer, you could lose compensation. Even worse, you lose necessary medical treatment and your health could be permanently affected.

Handling a Wide Range of Workplace Accidents and Injuries

Our law firm near Kansas City helps workers who have been hurt in the course of their employment. Our clients are people who have sustained many different types of work injuries including the ones listed below. We also represent the surviving families of workers killed in on-the-job accidents of all kinds.

  • Carpel tunnel syndrome/repetitive stress injuries

  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries/paralysis
  • Brain injuries

Many people worry about what will happen when they get lawyers involved. The truth is that things might not be that different. You will still be treated by a doctor. Your ongoing treatment will continue, and our firm will make sure that you receive every additional benefit to which you are entitled. The main difference you will notice is that everything will run smoothly — without any problems that could prevent you from receiving the compensation you deserve.
