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.
