Personal Injury ◊ Workers' Compensation

Licensed in Missouri and Illinois

When you have been hurt in an accident because of the carelessness of another person, you can easily become overwhelmed by all that you have lost and all that you need to do to get your life back together. If you are unable to work, you may be uncertain how you will meet your obligations. You may have exorbitant medical bills that are not covered by insurance. You may need extensive rehabilitation or physical therapy.

When you have been injured through no fault of your own, you want an experienced and aggressive lawyer to help you get full and fair compensation for all your losses.

At the offices of James M. McClellan, Attorney at Law, I have represented personal injury victims throughout southeastern Missouri for over 28 years. I often handle the most difficult types of personal injury claims, including serious or catastrophic injuries, such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and paralysis. I also advocate for individuals and families in wrongful death actions. Contact my offices to schedule a free initial consultation.

A serious personal injury can affect every area of your life. You need an attorney who will take the time to get to know you, to learn about what you value and all that you have lost. I am that attorney. My goal is to resolve your legal issues so thoroughly that you never come and see me again.

Workers' Compensation and Social Security Disability

I work closely with men and women who have been injured in the workplace. The Missouri workers' compensation laws establish specific ways to recover lost wages and medical expenses resulting from job-related injuries. I will help you pursue your claim against your employer and their workers' compensation insurers, including representation in appeals, if necessary.

I also advise individuals who seek Social Security disability benefits, whether for themselves of for a disabled family member. I can assist you at any stage of the process, whether you are a first time applicant, need to appeal a denial of benefits, or face a Continuing Disability Review.
