In 2018, Mr. Cox secured an award of workers’ compensation benefits for a hardworking 60-year-old woman who had suffered numerous work-related injuries over a 34-year career with the same company.  After sustaining another work-related injury, she was denied workers’ compensation benefits, including much-needed medical care related to her new injury, by the same employer after she was not physically capable of returning to work due to her injuries. Despite her dedication to the employer for over 30 years, the case was fought hard, leading to five years of litigation, including an appeal. The award included ongoing permanent total disability payments from the state-administered Second Injury Fund pursuant to Missouri law.
