Sometimes, a work injury is caused wholly or in part by the actions of a co-worker. The primary Missouri statute dealing with this situation is found at section 287.120.1 which provides that such a co-worker shall not be liable and “shall be released from all other liability whatsoever except if the co-worker “engaged in an affirmative negligent act that purposefully and dangerously caused or increased the risk of injury.”
