Workers' compensation cases can be complex. They are more so when they involve a workplace injury that is more severe because of a pre-existing disability. The Second Injury Fund exists to help workers get fair treatment in these unique situations.
In Missouri, sometimes Second Injury Fund claims can be filed when workplace injury combines with a pre-existing disability to cause greater disability overall or total disability. They can be filed for anything from repetitive stress to severe back injuries and nearly everything in between. Keefe & Griffiths, PC can review all of your previous medical records to see if they can make an additional claim for benefits.
Benefits obtained from the Second Injury Fund are not meant to stand alone. They supplement standard workers' compensation payments. They are often a "second settlement." Sometimes, the Second Injury Fund provides a weekly compensation check for life.
Because workers compensation claims can be complex, it is easy to overlook important opportunities and entitlements.
