A recent decision by the Eastern District, Missouri Court of Appeals ruled that an employer may be liable for certain injuries on the job, if such injury is the prevailing factor in causing the injury. If this is found then there can be an award of past and future medical expenses. This means that the injured employee in Missouri can get all of his or her medical expenses paid for, get a settlement for the injuries and have all future medical care provided for. This is especially helpful for workers who have been significantly injured and will need continued medical treatment for an extended period of time. This allows the injured worker to conclude the workers compensation case, move on with his life, and still be able to have the employer or their insurance company pay for their medical treatment.
Employers or their work comp insurance companies routinely try to avoid paying for medical treatment that is reasonably needed to cure or relieve the workers compensation injury that occurs in Missouri.
