Why You Should Hire a St Louis Worker's Compensation Lawyer?

Should you hire Burger Law to be your workers’ compensation attorney? Well, it depends. If you have a small workers’ compensation claim, your employer’s taking care of you, your medical’s paid and they come to you and they say, “Hey, we want to offer you some money as a lump sum disability payment to settle your case. Here it is. Here’s how we calculated it,” you may want to settle that claim and don’t pay me. So, there are some small workers’ compensation claims where there’s not a lot of permanent disability and not a lot of personal injury that you don’t need a lawyer.

But if you do, if your employer’s challenging your right to TTD, if they’re messing with you on your medical, if they’re sending you back to work when you’re not ready, if they’re not going to pay you a significant money for your Permanent Total Disability or Permanent Partial Disability at the end of the case, when those things happen, a lot of times folks come to us and they hire us to represent them in their claim.

We’ll meet with you for free, we don’t charge you unless we recover for you, and we do a lot for you in your claim, so we’ll travel to you if you need help, if you can’t get out to us in one of our three locations. If you can’t meet with us, we’ll do that.

We have a lot of articles about our great successes on the website. Why choose us over other lawyers? I don’t know. There’s a lot of lawyers. I’ve been doing this for 25 years. I’m a Super Lawyer. I’m ranked in a lot of things. All my credentials are on my website. I’m recognized by a lot of folks. We take very aggressive views in your workers’ compensation claim. We give personal service to you and your claim. Me and my team of lawyers and paralegals will represent you.

I’ve written a book on Workers’ Compensation in Missouri that answers a lot of questions for free. You can download it for free on our website. Here’s a copy of it that I downloaded today to do this video.

We take the claims very seriously. We are happy to fight for all of your TTD, all of your medical you’re entitled to, make sure your employer is treating you well, make sure when we settle the case at the end we resolve any and all liens. We charge a flat contingency fee if we win your case. If we don’t win your case, we don’t charge you anything. We’re transparent. We’re upfront. You’ll get a card with my cellphone number on it. My email is We’re available to our clients.

We fight hard for our clients. When medical is denied, TTD is denied, our workers get jerked around, we file hardships, we make sure that your employer provides all the benefits to which you are entitled under the law. At the end of the case, we work very, very hard to get full compensation for our clients, not 50% compensation. We do all the things we can to make sure that the rate that you’re being calculated, the amount of disability you have and those things are fully vetted. We’ll try your case if we need to. We have a panel of experts that we use, that we could put our best foot forward with the Commission and with the Workers’ Compensation Division to show what your disability is. We’re not afraid to be creative in our claims in terms of making sure that your head injury is assessed, make sure if you have hearing or eye injuries that we get the full value of that.

So, there’s a lot of stuff we do. I could go on and on, but if you want to call us at 314-542-2222, we’ll talk to you about it more. Fill out the contact form on the site or email us at or email me at, and we’re happy to discuss your case. Thank you.
