Recently, the courts have held that an employee must demonstrate that the injured suffered at work is the reason for his inability to continuing working in the open labor market. This is, of course, if he is to win his case solely against the employer’s insurance company. The law also allows a person to show that all of their previous injuries work injuries combined result in the employees inability to work. This means that the last injury suffered does not have to be the only work injury taken into account when determining if the employee is eligible for weekly checks for the rest of their life. Again, this is the result of the Second Injury Fund, here in Missouri. So if you have been injured at work, and there have been injuries in the past, please don’t pass up the opportunity to see if you can receive weekly checks for the rest of your life.
