Has Your Medical Treatment been Denied After a Work Injury?

One of the most difficult parts of being injured at work only gets worse when you are told that you are not going to be receiving medical treatment. Part of the Missouri workers compensation law says that if you get hurt at work, the employer, or their insurance company, has to pay for you to get medical treatment. When this is denied, you really see just how much you are at the mercy of what you are told. If you are lucky and have private insurance, you can seek medical treatment on your own. If you don’t have any insurance, you are stuck with a work injury that isn’t going to get any better.

Work Injuries Can Happen Anywhere

As the new provisions of the Missouri workers compensation law take shape, one area that has changed is the types of injuries that will be covered under the Missouri workers compensation system. In the past, if someone were working and injured themselves, as long as they were doing a job duty for their employer, their work injury would be covered. Now, the question is more complicated than that. An example is a recent case where a woman was going to make some coffee and on her way back to her desk she twisted her knee and fell to the ground. She lost the case because the court reasoned that there was nothing about her job that caused the injury. There was no connection other than the fact that she was at work. This makes it imperative for injured workers in St. Louis, Missouri to contact an experienced workers compensation attorney to help them protect their rights.

We know what it takes to win these kinds of workers compensation cases and we can help. If you are in St. Louis and have injured yourself at work, call our workers compensation law firm for help.

Have you injured your back at work?
 
So often a potential client walks in our doors and has complaints about their back, numbness, tingling and even some loss of strength. Most often, when an insurance company hears complaints like this, they get a doctor to explain to the injured worker that he or she was not injured at work but that the injury is pre-existing. We have even some across a case where the employee gets hurt at work, he complains of back pain for the first time in his life, gets an MRI and it shows a bulging disc. The doctor working for the insurance company then tells him that when there is pain right after a work injury, even if there is a positive MRI, that it is not related. COME ON! 

It is examples like this that explain why we at Roskin & Hoffmann, LLC have jobs. We would not be representing any injured workers in Missouri as workers compensation attorneys if it weren't for insurance companies terrible treatment of injured workers. 
 
So, if you have been hurt at work, don't be surprised when you are told that your injury is not work related. The insurance companies are just hoping that you won't call an experienced workers compensation law firm with excellent workers compensation lawyers and attorneys like Roskin & Hoffmann, LLC.

Missouri's Workers Compensation Second Injury Fund has a Deficit of over $25 Million

Injured Workers still have to pay their bills and so should the State of Missouri

Auditor Tom Schweich issued a recent report stating that the Second Injury Fund had a balance of $3.2 million at the end of 2012 with $28.1 million still being owed, leaving a deficit of nearly $25 million.

The options to solve this problem seem to be too complex for our Missouri State Elected as they would have to increase the cap charged to businesses insurance, cut back on benefits or end the fund all together. Instead, injured Missouri workers are left waiting while the State decides when it is going to pay it's debt.

The 2005 bill which altered Missouri Workers Compensation law, capped what funds the Second Injury Fund. Since that time, the amount being paid out by the State has always exceeded what it is taking in. And just like their colleagues in Washington, a solution to the problem cannot come until there is no more time remaining.

What this means for the injured workers of Missouri is that they have to pay their bills on time, but the State does not have to.

Is the Missouri Second Injury Fund going broke?

 

Missouri's Second Injury Fund is nearly broke putting a burden on injured employees throughout Missouri.

 

With 28, 000 pending claims against the Second Injury Fund, injured Missouri workers, trying to obtain what is rightfully theirs, are having a lot of trouble doing so. You see, the value of just half of these claims is likely in the liability range of $140 million. Now that is a large number when you consider that the Second Injury Fund, put in place to protect employees who are injured at work, has only $12.3 million.

There are injured workers in the State of Missouri, many of whom are in the St. Louis Metropolitan area, who have successfully litigated and won their case against the Second Injury Fund who are waiting to be paid. These are people who are totally disabled and have little to no income during any given month. These injured workers, however, don't have the same power as the State to tell their bill collectors that they are not going to pay right now.

Missouri Workers Compensation Update

With the legislating year finished, Governor Nixon left some
unfinished business in regards to the MO workers compensation system.

Still unanswered is the second injury financial problems and the cap
to what Missouri can take from workers compensation premiums. This has caused the second injury fund to stop settling cases, increase the work load for their attorneys and Judges throughout the state. All of the cases that were once settled are now being tried, which generally ends in the same result, but gives the much needed benefit to Missouri of delaying the inevitable. A quick fix has not happened leaving many to wonder what is going to happen next.


Governor Nixon also vetoed a bill that would be harmful to Missouri workers by leaving them with no option to pursue a case against a co-worker when they were injured at work due to the other persons negligence. Also, occupational diseases such as carpal tunnel syndrome can still be brought in State court due to the changes in the 2005 legislation and this veto. The republicans, trying to limit employer exposure to injuries in 2005, created the potential to bring carpal tunnel cases in state court and now they want to undo it. There was no middle ground that emerged with this bill and so republicans will be forced to start from scratch.

Nixon vetos work comp bill, Senate overrides, now the House must decide.

With the changes to Missouri Worker's Compensation law in 2005, employers found themselves being sued in civil court for occupational diseases. The goal for the employers was to avoid any liability at all for these types of work place injuries, but the courts found that if the employers did not want to be sued within the worker's compensation system, then the civil courts would open their doors. Employers thought they won a major battle with that 2005 legislation, but it turns out in the Country and in this State, you can't just avoid liability because you control the major branches of the Missouri legislature.

Since this time, employers and their money packing groups have fought against the exact thing they thought they wrote in their 2005 bill. They have found out that the grass was in fact not greener. Now they are all saying that it is common sense for occupational diseases to be in the worker's compensation system. “The legislation brings common-sense changes, so that co-employee liability and occupational disease can be handled by our workers compensation system, as has been the case for decades, and not be used as anew money stream for enterprising trial attorneys,” Chamber President Daniel P. Mehan said in a statement.

So now all that is left is the Missouri House, and if they vote to override the veto by two-thirds, then the employers and their groups will again think that they have won. But have these groups learned nothing up to this point. Trial attorneys will continue to fight for the little guy, the injured worker and the just cause to try and provide justice in this often times unjust world.

Missouri House Passes Workers Compensation Bill

In 2005 the Missouri Workers Compensation law was drastically changed to favor the employer. One such attempt of the bill was to exclude occupational diseases and illnesses from the Workers Compensation system. The idea was to make it so injured workers would not be able to recover for these types of injuries. However, the trial lawyers of Missouri knew better than to think that this cause of action would be unrecoverable and thus proceeded to the civil court system to state their case. Since that time, many cases that have been denied by workers compensation defenders have proceeded to civil court where attorneys throughout Missouri have been winning cases for their clients.

Due to the creativity of the trial lawyers, the legislatures are now trying to put those types of injuries back into the workers compensation system so as to remove the threat of a trial by jury and thus limit the amount they may owe on a particular case. Now that big business realizes that they cannot just tell injured workers their claims are no good, they want to limit any type of compensation they can get. This is best done in the workers compensation system.

In summary, in 2005 big business said they wanted these types of injuries out of the work comp system. Now that that has backfired, and injured workers are still winning their cases, big business is changing their tune. Now they want the cases to go back to the workers compensation courts so as to limit what they might owe. This bill has passed both the House and the Senate and now proceeds to Governor Nixon for his signature if he so desires. Governor Nixon has expressed concern over the bill and the way it limits what can be done when someone is injured on the job. For those of us also aware of the insolvency of the Second Injury Fund, this bill does nothing to solve that problem.
