Is Workers’ Compensation the Only Recourse After an Injury on the Job?

Exploring Legal Options Beyond Workers’ Compensation for Workplace Injury Victims

Workers and their families often find themselves at a crossroads after an injury on the job, pondering whether workers’ compensation is their sole avenue for recourse. However, the path to recovery and justice may not be limited to just one option, especially under certain conditions.

The Stark Reality of Workplace Accidents

Every year, a significant number of workers sustain serious injuries or face mortality due to accidents in various sectors. These incidents, which span from falls and machinery-related injuries to catastrophic events involving heavy equipment, impart a profound emotional and financial burden on the affected families. The aftermath is a struggle with the abrupt loss and ensuing hardships. Notably, injuries resulting from defective equipment or tools are typically outside the coverage of Workers’ Compensation in Missouri, highlighting a crucial distinction for victims and their families.
