How the workers' comp process works in Missouri

People who suffer injuries at work in Missouri may obtain compensation through the state's workers' compensation program. Benefits typically include coverage for medical expenses as well as lost wages. To be sure you get the full range of benefits your injury entitles you to, you will need to meet deadlines and submit paperwork. An attorney can help you with this process and make sure your submissions are correct.

Workers' compensation often denies back pain claims for office workers

For office workers in Kansas and Missouri, as well as across the United States, chronic lower back pain is a serious problem. The nature of working at a desk job often causes these conditions to develop, leading to an alarming number of administrative professionals who develop some form of debilitating lower back pain. Unfortunately, many employers in the Kansas City area (as well as their Missouri or Kansas workers' compensation insurance providers) are often quick to deny the reality of a work-related lower back injury when an office worker files a claim. It doesn't help that many types of lower back problems simply don't show up on X-rays and extensive medical tests may be required to prove the disability. The facts, however, do not support these companies' position when denying worker's compensation claims.
