IN 2018, Mr. Cox secured an award of workers’ compensation benefits for a hardworking 58-year-old man who had suffered numerous work-related injuries over a lifetime of hard labor.  After sustaining another work-related injury, he was denied workers’ compensation benefits, including much-needed medical care related to his new injury, when he was not physically capable of returning to work due to his injuries. The award included ongoing permanent total disability payments from the state-administered Second Injury Fund pursuant to Missouri law.
