Gary Burger Releases 3rd Book! Workers' Compensation in Missouri: Succeeding in Your Injury Claim

While some of us go on vacation or relax this time of the summer (and cerrtainly on sunday night), I thought I'd write about hard working people and on the job injuries. We have long represented folks in Workers' Compensation claims.

And I am excited to have finished and published my third book. This one on Workers’ Compensation. You can download a copy of the book by clicking this link.

The book has detailed information for lawyers and claimants on all aspects of Work Comp. Please feel free to download and use it. If I can help you, a friend or a client in a Work Comp claim, email or call me (314-542-2222). We pay co-counsel fees to referring lawyers.

There were 104,087 on the job injuries in Missouri in 2016. Click here for the 2016 Labor and Industrial Relations Annual report.

Gov. Eric Greitens signed legislation banning local governments from giving preferential treatment to union contractors on public construction projects. (click for article). He also signed changes to the Work Comp laws. (click for article). Workers will be paid less in Missouri.

Below I discuss his changes to Work Comp law, an update on the dogs we rescued last month, and some mistakes workers make in their injury claims.
