Some people in Missouri may think that spending time away from the workplace is usually relaxing, for example, if a person takes a vacation.

This type of leave from work is anything but pleasant.
No one in Missouri expects to be injured in any given day. However, a day that starts out normally could turn to catastrophe if a person is in a serious car wreck, is injured on-the-job or is injured in another type of accident. A severely injured person often needs extensive medical care and rehabilitation. Unfortunately, sometimes this just isn't enough and an injured person finds that the incident has led to long-term disability.
Many recipients of Social Security disability benefits in Missouri have been out of the workforce for many years.
