What is workers' compensation and who pays it?
If you were injured while on-the-job, you have a right to workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits are administered through the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industries, Workers Compensation Division and are paid through your employer’s insurer. If you are injured at work, you have the right to compensation for your lost wages, medical expenses and any disability that you suffer, including temporary disability or permanent disability.
Workers’ compensation laws and benefits are designed to help you recover from workplace injuries and get back on your feet. Too often, however, these laws and regulations are ignored. If your claim is wrongfully denied or if your benefits are not being paid timely or fully, you need a Minneapolis workers’ compensation lawyer who is familiar with Minnesota workers’ compensation laws.
Who can file a workers' compensation case?
If you are injured while on a worksite or during the course of your employment, you are entitled to workers’ comp benefits regardless of the cause of your injury. In some circumstances, you can also seek compensation from third parties that cause your injuries. For example, if you were driving a company vehicle while on-the-job and were involved in an accident, you may be able to make a claim against the driver that caused your injuries. We represent many workers with similar situations and can help you make the appropriate claims to compensate you for your Minneapolis workplace injuries.
