Missouri Workers’ Compensation Claims

Missouri workers’ compensation claims should be filed if an employee has been injured in an accident while he is working, or if he develops a work-related sickness. Workers’ compensation benefits may be available to assist the injured or sick worker during his recovery period. In Missouri, employers must have workers’ compensation insurance if they employ five or more workers. An exception exists for the construction industry, in which the employer must carry workers’ compensation insurance if he has more than one employee. If a Missouri worker has a work-connected disease or injury, he or she should submit a Missouri workers’ compensation claim for benefits to the Missouri Division of Workers’ Compensation.
