Under the Missouri and Illinois laws governing workers' compensation, you can be compensated for most types of injuries suffered at work, no matter who was at fault for the injury. Compensation includes a portion of your lost wages during the time when you are medically unable to return to work, as well as the cost of necessary medical treatment. As an injured employee, you have the burden of proving that your accidental injury was related to the performance of your duties on the job. Missouri workers’ compensation law is structured to permit recovery of wages (temporary total disability), loss of income associated with permanent disability (permanent partial disability), and medical expenses related to your injury.
