WHY SHOULD I CONTACT
THE ALBERHASKY LAW FIRM
Workers’ compensation law is complicated. Handling it all on your own may only put more stress on you while you’re enduring an illness, injury, or other changes to your everyday life.
You may qualify for receiving second injury funds if you are a veteran with a pre-existing partial or full permanent disability and if your work related injuries require rehab, you may be eligible for rehabilitation benefits. It is important to talk to an attorney because many factors come into play that can impact your eligibility for benefits, such as your condition(s), time sensitivity, and the sequence of events required to correctly file. Missouri Second Injury Fund settlements are achievable, but the burden of proof still lies on the veterans’ shoulders.
Choose The Alberhasky Law Firm to seek council in the event that you are injured at work. Our lawyers frequently handle workers’ compensation pre-hearings, mediation, settlement conferences, evidentiary hearings, and so on, for the sake of representing everyday people who seek justice in their claim. Since our litigators are so familiar with the Second Injury Fund process, we are happy to offer free consultations to anyone who is ready for guidance. Reaching out will minimize the time it takes to make progress in your Second Injury case and seek every opportunity to maximize your compensation rate.
SOME CONDITIONS AND INJURIES OFTEN GO UNNOTICED.
Some injuries or conditions may be apparent, but others often go unnoticed. After leaving the service, a connection to the challenges that mental health can cause is well known. Overall health and happiness is compromised for each vet who lives with mental illness, whether or not the condition is diagnosed. We take on cases for service connected PTSD or depression, which are only two common conditions that are often left diagnosed in veterans. A recent study by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs has determined that PTSD is present in approximately 13.5% of Veterans while, depression symptoms have been reported by roughly 1 in 3 Veterans.
It is possible that you may have one or both of these conditions. When adjusting to life after a career in the military, mental health is important to reflect on. When your recent work injury is connected to service related mental illness, winning your claim may put you in a better position to focus on recovery. If you have been injured on the job, The Alberhasky Law Firm in Springfield, MO understands SIFs well and can help you receive the benefits that you are entitled to, regardless of how visible your condition is to others.
