You need to speak with, and probably hire, an attorney who specializes in Worker's Compensation. You will not have to pay the attorney any attorney's fees out of your pocket, and an attorney will make sure that you receive more compensation even after attorney's fees are deducted than you would receive if you do not use an attorney. I work with one of the very best worker's compensation attorneys in the State of Missouri, and I would very strongly suggest that you call me so that I can give you his contact information. He will not charge you for the initial consultation. Even if you decide not to use the attorney you will greatly benefit from learning all you can in the initail consultation with the attorney.
i can answer your questions however to do so by this method would be difficult. give me a call if you wish 417-889-4400 richard stevens
