Missouri Second Injury Fund Attorney
Missouri’s Second Injury Fund is designed for individuals suffering a pre-existing injury that has been aggravated on the job and directly because of their work.
Missouri Pre-Existing Work Injury Attorney
The fund is very limited and is financed by a surcharge placed in workers’ compensation insurance premiums, which is capped at three percent. As the benefit has seen a decrease in state funding, it has gradually been able to provide for fewer and fewer claims over the years. I am a lawyer who has continued to fight throughout Missouri for greater funding for this benefit, and I have represented many clients as they sought to receive the benefits they deserved from this fund.
Regardless of the resources of the fund, I will pursue your claim as I would any other work-related injury claim.
I have testified to the Missouri state legislator regarding the state of the fund in an effort to help find a solution. This has built my credibility in court as a zealous advocate for those needing benefits for these types of injuries.
When I consider your case, I will cover all angles that need to be evaluated, including
The nature of the pre-existing condition
Whether the injury was sustained during work
Non-work circumstances, such as a car accident or personal injury
It is important that we include all factors in our claim.
As fewer people are able to receive benefits from this diminishing fund due to resources, you need a skilled St. Louis Second Injury Fund attorney with a strong background in dealing with these cases.
