An analysis of recent interpretations of the duty to provide medical treatment to employees to include shoulder replacement or knee replacement

Did you know that the Missouri Workers compensation laws, as interpreted by our Courts, is currently being interpreted to greatly improve your chances to obtain significant medical treatment, such as a knee replacement, shoulder replacement, back fusion surgery, etc. that had previously been denied by insurers. We have spoken on this topic at seminars and would be happy to take a look at your particular case.


Some of the more significant changes in the Missouri Workers' Compensation Law which took place in 2005 included amendments to the statutory sections which define what constitutes an "accident" that arises out of and in the course of employment under RSMo. 287.020.2, and then the corresponding obligation by the Employer and the Insurer to provide medical treatment after the injury or disability to help relieve from the effects of the injury.
