About Me




Summary




Todd Werts’ practice primarily involves representing individuals in claims filed in state and federal courts as well as various administrative agencies. He focuses on personal injury, employment, and workers compensation cases. Todd works closely with each of his clients to tailor a resolution that meets that specific client’s unique needs. Todd also is mindful that individuals may not be aware of all the legal implications of their situation and, therefore, meets individually with each prospective client to listen to their story and present a clear explanation of the client’s options.

Todd has successfully represented clients in cases involving serious personal injuries arising from automobile collisions, trucking accidents, and falls as a result of dangerous premises. Todd also maintains a robust workers compensation practice, handling cases involving spinal injuries, torn rotator cuffs, carpal tunnel, among others.

Todd is a frequent speaker on injury and employment law issues. He is an active member of the Missouri Bar and the Boone County Bar Association where he serves on a number of committees.
