Were You Injured On The Job?
If you were injured in an accident on the job or have been exposed to an occupational illness, you need to file a claim with the Missouri Division of Workers’ Compensation. Workers’ Compensation insurance covers any type of injury that was sustained while working on the job or due to the nature of the job, and any occupational illnesses that were contracted during employment. It provides financial relief to workers in Missouri who have been injured on the job and helps to alleviate the burden of medical and hospital bills, medication expenses and lost wages during periods of recovery. In extreme cases, a worker may be seriously injured and unable to return to work at all making it that much more important to have access to workers’ compensation insurance.
Employees are entitled to workers’ compensation coverage if they are injured in an accident on the job. In the state of Missouri, any labor organization that has five or more employees must provide all workers with workers’ compensation insurance excluding volunteers, farm laborers, domestic servants, some real estate agents, and commercial motor-carrier owner-operators. However, if employed in the construction industry, an employer only needs to employ one worker in order to qualify for mandatory workers’ compensation insurance.
