28 Jan Missouri’s Second Injury Fund
Carson & Coil’s workers’ compensation attorneys in Jeff City specialize in the Second Injury Fund
In 2013, former Governor Jay Nixon signed The Second Injury Fund (SIF) into law. The Missouri Department of Labor outlines how this law is intended to “compensate injured workers when a work-related injury combines with a prior disability to create an increased combined disability.”
You may be eligible to receive compensation from the Second Injury Fund if you have been issued benefits from a workers’ compensation settlement, are currently receiving physical rehabilitation for a work-related injury through a certified facility, or if your employer has failed to cover the cost of medical bills through their workers’ compensation insurance.
