Was your injury the result of an accident in the workplace, perhaps involving a forklift or some other piece of work equipment?

Answers to Common Questions About Workers’ Compensation

I was injured at work. What should I do?

If you have been injured at work, the first thing you should do is report the injury to your supervisor. Missouri law requires prompt notice of injuries to employers.

Were you injured? As your first step, we recommend that you file this notice in writing with your employer to begin the claim for compensation process.

When should I file my claim?

Missouri law contains time limits for filing. Generally, a claim must be filed within two years of: (1) the date of the accident; (2) the last payment of workers’ compensation benefits or; (3) the last medical treatment provided. A claim is only filed by filing with the Division of Workers’ Compensation.

Who is covered by Workers’ Compensation?

Any employer with 5 or more employees, and all employers in the construction industry are required to provide protection for their employees.

Will I get a settlement?

If you suffer a permanent disability, you may be entitled to a settlement. The amount you will recover depends on the nature and extent of disability. Typically, there are disagreements between employers and workers about the nature and extent of the disability.
