If you are injured while working for your employer in Missouri, you probably have several questions for which you cannot readily find answers. You may not have received weekly benefits for time you missed from work due to your injury. Your employer may be refusing to acknowledge your injury because it is due to repetition or overuse, i.e. the injury did not occur "suddenly". Perhaps you have had problems with the same part of your body before your work injury and are unsure of your employer's responsibility for your current physical condition. The information presented here will try to answer some of your questions. However, if you have been injured, we urge you to contact our office and schedule an appointment with an attorney so that we can answer any questions you have that are unique to your case. The following information is only a basic outline of some common situations and problems that occur in the course of a workers' compensation case, and should NEVER be used in the place of an actual consultation with an attorney. The law changes constantly, and no outline can take the place of advice from an attorney.
