Each day, we talk to people from a broad range of occupations who are suffering with the pain or other symptoms from an accident at work. These are just a few of the most common work-related injuries we see:
Lifting injuries – During the course of the normal workday, many workers are accidentally injured while lifting heavy or awkward objects. These injuries can be minor sprains or strains, which are compensable under workers' compensation, but they can also include hernias and disc protrusions. These type of injuries need medical treatment through workers’ compensation.
Back injuries – Back injuries are complicated and can include bulging/herniated discs or soft-tissue damage. Accurately assessing this type of problem can be difficult. Very serious back injuries may include fractures that lead to paralysis.
Falls – Falls are a quite common workplace injury that can be minor or life-changing. A seemingly minor fall can result in problems to the hands, wrists, and shoulders after bracing for the impact. More serious falls can lead to head injuries or even

"I was contacted by the Missouri Workers Compensation Division and was told that I had a hearing over my settlement. I had no idea what that meant, but I noticed that the workman's comp. insurance company of my former employer, had a law firm representing them. I spoke to a friend and they told me to get a lawyer, my sister-in-law (who is a paralegal) said that her office uses Ryan Murphy. I gave him a call, and he saw me on his day off, he explained what was going on and how he would handle my case if I chose to have him represent me. I agreed and hired him that day. I got paper work in the mail within a few days, that showed me that he and his team were not wasting any time. I had no idea what my settlement would be, but I received a lot more than I thought I would and I was very pleased with how everything turned out. I have learned to always have a lawyer represent you in any workman's comp. case and I will recommend Ryan Murphy to all my friends."

"Ryan E Murphy is the best lawyer ever! My right shoulder was injured and when I did my part and told the company I worked for that I was hurt. The company turned there cheek and didn't care. This was my first time going through a work injury deal and when I found Ryan E Murphy I felt safe and knew I could trust him! He spoke clear and explain how filing for a work injury case works. He also gives great advice and his team!! It took almost two years to settle my case. I can say it was the hardest and toughest time of my life in the beginning of it all but having Ryan there with me gave me the strength to keep fighting forward so company's don't ever get away with injurying there employees. I would give Ryan E Murphy a million stars because he is that great! Thank you Ryan E Murphy and Renee for everything!! I am so thankful and blessed to have meet you and all the help you have given to me and my little family."
