Suffering an injury on the job is not always the result of a major accident or repeated movements, although this is likely what most people in Missouri think of in terms of work-related suffering. Many people are also at risk for instances of workplace violence. Although this is perhaps an overlooked on-the-job danger, victims may still qualify for workers' compensation.
Accidents in warehouses in Missouri and other states involve a wide variety of mishaps. Whenever a warehouse worker is injured in a workplace accident, the worker is entitled to collect applicable workers' compensation benefits. Such benefits are paid regardless of who was at fault in causing the accident. The main initial concern for workers in such incidents is to make sure that the accident is reported and documented adequately to a supervisor.
