Car accident leaves bystander with injuries

For many Missouri residents, the thought of being injured while minding their own business seems a bit excessive and unlikely. Most people associate accidents and injuries with actions involving their participation, negligence, distraction or confusion. However, it is not unheard of for people to be the victims of unforeseen accidents that trigger a series of unanticipated events. Sometimes, these unlikely situations can create chaos and result in the injury of innocent bystanders. 

Car accidents and burn injuries

Car accidents in Springfield often have devastating consequences for those involved. There are a variety of factors that determine the type and seriousness of injuries victims sustain. It is not uncommon for some vehicles to catch fire. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, 1,250 people sustained burn injuries from 194,000 highway car accidents that occurred from 2008 to 2010. Victims are likely to sustain mild to severe burns that they might not completely recover from. 

Gaining the maximum value from a workers' compensation claim

For many members of the Missouri workforce, staying safe while on the job is a primary priority. However, there are times when unforeseen hazards, carelessness, lapses in judgment and even miscommunication can result in the serious injury or death of a worker. Fortunately, there are protections like workers' compensation, to provide assistance to injured workers as they take time off to recover, rehabilitate and re acclimate to the workforce. 

What you should know about appealing a denied claim

If you ever become injured at work or develop a chronic condition because of it in Springfield, you may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation. That is, assuming you are an employee and your employer has workers’ compensation insurance. Being eligible for benefits does not mean that once you file a claim you will immediately receive them.
