Missouri Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Workers’ compensation insurance exists to make sure that employees have their expenses covered for injuries suffered while they are on the job. These expenses can include lost wages, uncovered medical expenses, and disability. Workplace injuries are common in some industries, such as construction and farming, but any job can cause an injury. And every job-related injury, whether catastrophic or chronic, should be compensated.
Some workplace injuries are caused by the inherently dangerous nature of a profession. Most farm accidents, for example, fall into this category. Other occupational injuries are of an ongoing type, such as repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome. Some work-related injuries occur because an employer has chosen to remove safeguards from equipment, for economic or ease of use reasons. And some on the job injuries are just the result of accidents, plain and simple. Whatever the situation, your employer should cover the costs you incur due to the injury.
In particular, if your on the job accident results in a permanent disability forcing you to change careers, you may be eligible for money to pay for permanent disability payments, depending on the severity of the disability.
