Worker’s Compensation St. Louis

Many injuries occur in the workplace, and these incidents are largely governed by worker’s compensation insurance laws, as laid out in Missouri Statutes Section 287.120. The trade off in the law is that workers are paid a formula-set amount of compensation quickly after a workplace injury. The award is meant to pay for medical expenses and lost wages. If workers are disabled, then they are compensated for their loss through a formula based on their wages and how debilitating their injury was. In exchange for this no-fault compensation, the law takes away worker’s rights to sue their employers for other damages.

Professional Driver Accidents

Truck drivers are subject to numerous safety regulations. They must comply with their company’s drug testing program and track all of their time spent on duty and also their rest to ensure that they are meeting federal and company rest requirements. They must have good records that the company can use to show its own legal compliance. Drivers cannot be impaired or fatigued when they drive, and they must ensure their vehicle is in good working order. This puts more responsibility on a professional driver, meaning, for example, they could be held liable for drowsy driving more easily than an amateur.

Accidents in a Commercial Establishment

Companies that open their doors to the public can be held liable for accidents suffered by their customers. These are commonly called “slip and fall accidents.” Companies should have programs in place to prevent injuries, such as a routine cleaning process aimed at keeping water, dirt, and grease off the floors. Hazards like loose mats, torn carpeting, bad lighting, exposed wires, and uneven floors should be immediately fixed as well. Companies should also make sure their customers have an easy way to call for a cleanup if they see a mess.

Defective Products

Missouri Statutes Section 537.760 holds a commercial company that sells a product in the state to be liable for a “product liability claim” when (1) the defendant sold a product as part of a business, (2) the product was used as reasonably anticipated, and (3) the product was either defective or it was unreasonably dangerous to sell without an adequate warning. The company will be “strictly liable” for any damages that are caused.

Commercial Accidents Probably Mean Big Insurance

If you have been injured in a commercial accident, odds are that your opportunities for compensation are going to come from a large insurance company. Unfortunately, modern insurance companies tend to spend all their energy finding ways to deny claims instead of just finding out what happened and trying to do the right thing. These companies are highly profit-driven and they make money by collecting premiums from as many people as possible while limiting their payouts.
