What do you do when your employer does not have workman’s comp insurance?

Friday, Oct. 30th 2015

A lawyer for workers compensation can help guide injured workers to receive the compensation they should be entitled to. Most workers in Missouri are covered by workers’ compensation insurance paid for by their employers. This is supposed to provide some level of peace of mind to workers who are exposed to hazardous situations at work. But when employers fail to maintain their workers compensation insurance it becomes vital for injured workers to obtain a workers compensation attorney.

If you suffered a workplace injury and found that your employer is not covered by workers’ compensation, you may also find yourself facing financial difficulties resulting from high medical expenses and loss of income. You may find comfort in knowing that there are legal remedies to your dilemma. However, when an employer is in violation of worker’s compensation laws, it is a complicated legal matter, so you may want to consider retaining the services of an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.

Missouri workers may claim compensation from the Second Injury Fund if their employers fail to provide insurance coverage. The Second Injury Fund commonly provides compensation for expenses related to medical care, but it will not cover permanent or temporary disability expenses. An uninsured injured worker retains the right to file a personal injury claim in court against his or her employer.

Workmans comp can be a complicated area of law and a lawyer for workers compensation can be vital to ensuring you obtain the compensation you deserve. Here at Northland injury we will assess your situations and explain your legal rights to you. We will help develop a plan for you on how to receive the compensation you deserve. This may include filing a personal injury claim in a Missouri civil court. Success at a civil court may lead to additional compensation for damages other than just medical expenses. Lost income, pain and suffering and future expenses related to the injury may be covered.
