Workers' compensation applies to all work-related accidents

A Missouri woman who was rescued from an explosion in a fireworks plant on the evening of July 3 has reportedly died a week later in a Springfield hospital. The 28-year-old employee of AM Pyrotechnics was at work preparing for July 4th fireworks shows when there was an explosion that destroyed the building. Ten fire departments with about 84 firefighters responded to the explosion. They were able to rescue the woman, but she had severe fourth-degree burns over 60 percent of her body, according to family reports on the decedent's Facebook page. Because she was at work, her family will receive all workers' compensation benefits payable.

Personal injury lawsuit zeros in on proof of negligence

In Missouri, a school district can be liable for damages for negligence that causes injuries to a student or other individual. School district employees are protected by a form of qualified immunity from personal liability for their negligence in causing the student's personal injury. If the district employee acts with recklessness, malice or gross negligence, the protection of qualified immunity may be lost.
