employee v employee lawsuit? Missouri
I would like to know if anyone has had any success trying to sue a coemployee/owner/supervisor in Missouri seperately from wc
I heard you can, if they intended to injure you while working, and you can prove it.

It depends on the cause of action. There are only a few exceptions that would allow a civil suit against an employer.

hmmm 1171 would not having insurance of any kind be one reason to sue civilly ?
Or can employer get insuirance after month of injury abd get it back covered to original date?to cover their butts!!
employee butts,yes -- employers butts and all other parts are excluded

Even If you started a w/c claim . Can you still sue civilly ?

Ok lol you lost me on the excluded part .. Can you still sue even If they have tried to cover the butts up ;p;
Am i still able to cilivally sue the employer even if It is not under w/c for their wrong dooings ?
Not having the protection of a work comp policy will allow the prosecution of employer thru a civil suit to recover damages. Many states have uninsured employer funds to provide immediate work comp benefits to the employee but these funds have recourse thru the civil courts to recover their costs from the employer. The details may vary between states but this is a general principle of work comp protection.
Employer can obtain coverage guarentees retroactively.
enforcement of insurance compliance rules are a separate action.
an employer cannot receive benefit payments from their work comp policy; only injuries to employee as defined by the policy can have an accepted claim.
