A: A Missouri attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. As a general matter, it could depend on context. What type of case was it? Were those elements material and significant? What was the error or oversight resulting in their omission? Was the evidence withheld? Whatever type of case it was, you may have signed a release, which would have memorialized the award to you as being a full and final settlement of all claims, known and unknown, present or future. If you were represented by an attorney, ask them. If you were pro se, you may want to consult with a Missouri attorney who would likely be able to determine if you have valid grounds for appeal. Move quickly; it's often a short window in the event you do have grounds. Good luck
