What Am I Entitled To?
The amount of workers’ compensation benefits you receive depends upon a number of factors, including the severity of your injury, your average weekly income before the injury and whether you are able to return to the same work.
Minnesota law allows for recovery of the following workers’ compensation benefits:
- Medical expenses, including hospital stays, surgeries, medication and adaptive equipment
- Vocational rehabilitation to help you return to your old position, find a new, comparable career or train for a new career
- Wage loss benefits if you are unable to work due to your injury or earn less because you are unable to return to your regular position
- Permanent partial disability (PPD) benefits if your injury leaves you permanently impaired.
The workers’ compensation process can be confusing and intimidating for someone who hasn’t been through it before. Your employer or its insurer may try wrongly limit or deny you compensation or other benefits.
We are here to make the process work for you, handling all of the red tape and advocating on your behalf, so you can focus on your recovery. We can represent you in your initial claim as well as any necessary appeals.
If your injury was caused by a negligent third party, that is, someone who is not your employer or a fellow employee, you may pursue a personal injury claim as well as a workers’ compensation claim. This can significantly increase the total amount of compensation for your workplace injury.
These claims can be very complicated. Proper coordination of these claims is of vital importance, and only an attorney familiar with both workers’ compensation and personal injury law should be entrusted with such cases.
Our law firm has extensive experience in both workers’ compensation and personal injury law, and can help you pursue all avenues of compensation.
