If you’re a worker in Minnesota who has been injured on the job, it’s important to understand your rights under the state’s workers’ compensation laws. At Harvey & Carpenter, our experienced attorneys can help you navigate the workers’ compensation system and ensure that you get the benefits you’re entitled to.
Under Minnesota law, most employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover the costs of medical treatment and lost wages for employees who are injured on the job. This includes injuries that occur suddenly, such as accidents, as well as injuries that develop over time, such as repetitive stress injuries.
Some common types of work injuries that are covered by workers’ compensation in Minnesota include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Work-related illnesses
- Injuries from lifting or carrying heavy objects
- Injuries from operating machinery or equipment
If you’ve been injured on the job, it’s important to report the injury to your employer as soon as possible. Your employer will then file a claim with their workers’ compensation insurance company, which will determine the benefits you’re entitled to.
At Harvey & Carpenter, we can help you understand the workers’ compensation process and make sure that your rights are protected. We will work closely with you to gather all the necessary evidence and build a strong case for your benefits.
