At The Alberhasky Law Firm, P.C., we have dedicated our practice to representing injured workers. Our firm of workers compensation and personal injury lawyers are focused on helping those in Springfield, MO, and the state of Missouri, who have been injured on the job receive full workers’ comp and benefits for all types of injuries. An injured worker or family member may be entitled to receive several kinds of workers’ comp benefits, including:
- compensation for missed work (weekly temporary disability checks)

- permanent total disability (lifetime weekly checks)
If you were injured in Springfield, MO, or in the state of Missouri, Coverage under the Missouri Workers’ Compensation Law can provide compensation not only for the injured workers but if the injury results in death, then the spouse, children or other dependents might also be entitled to compensation. These are called survivor benefits.
