What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?
Under Missouri Workers’ Compensation laws, employees who sustain on-the-job injuries or illnesses are entitled to seek medical benefits, income replacement at two-thirds of their weekly pay and a lump-sum payment if their condition results in permanent disability. Workers’ compensation does not include damages for pain and suffering.
