Many times we speak to injured Missouri workers who have been hurt on the job and we are told that they do not want to sue their employer. The injured worker likes their job, they have been treated fairly and they don’t want to put anything at risk. We completely understand these feelings. The good thing about the workers compensation laws in Missouri is that they require most employers to carry work comp insurance for the times when a worker is injured while at work. This means that the employer will have little if anything to do with the Missouri work comp case. Everything is handled by the insurance company. There are many instances where the employer turns the case over to the insurance company and never hears about the case again.
So the point is this. If you have been injured at work but don’t want to sue your employer, don’t worry. It is likely that they will have a very minor part in the proceedings. It is best to call an attorney who can speak to you about the specifics of your case you help you understand better what role your employer might play in the case.
