What are my rights under Missouri law if I am injured at work?In Missouri you have the right to receive medical treatment for an on the job injury, at your employer's expense. You may also receive (statutorily prescribed) weekly money compensation while you are recovering from your injuries. Once you recover from your injuries, you may be entitled a lump sum payment to compensate for any permanent partial disabilities that you sustained as a result of your job injury. You may also be entitled to other future benefits such as future medical treatment, medications and future disability payments.
How much time do I have to pursue my personal injury, workers’ compensation (job injury), medical malpractice or wrongful death case?
All legal matters have time deadlines (called the statute of limitations). All legal matters are time sensitive. The time deadline depends on the type of case, the state in which the legal claim occurred, and whether the person injured is an adult or a minor. For example, the deadline for adults involved in an automobile accident that occurs in Missouri is five years and two years for automobile accidents that occur in Illinois. That time period will be longer for a minor. Different time periods apply to other types of legal matters. Some legal matters require that certain notices must to be given within veryshort times (30 to 90 days depending on the type of case). DO NOT LET THE TIME RUN OUT ON YOUR CASE.
