Minnesota Worker’s Compensation Lawyer
If you have experienced a serious injury while on the clock, then you will need to fill out a worker’s compensation claim. This may seem like a simple process but you may be surprised at how many claims are denied and how many workers are not receiving the amount that they are entitled to. The law should be on your side but when it comes to worker’s compensation claims, it may not seem like it is. This is why it is so important to speak to an experienced Minnesota worker’s compensation lawyer to ensure you are getting all that you are entitled to.
Contact Mary Morin at the Morin Law Office today for a free consultation regarding your work related or personal injury.
Worker’s compensation claims should offer you:
- Financial assistance with medical related costs including rehabilitation
- A decent wage for a certain period of time, depending on your injury
- A large payout if the damage is permanent or if you are unable to work
- Access to occupational therapy
- Financial compensation for your pain and suffering
How much you are entitled to will depend entirely on your situation. However, all workers across the state of Minnesota are entitled to worker’s compensation.
Injured on the Job?
If you are injured while at work then you will need to fill in an incident report. In many instances, if the accident is serious, you may be in hospital before you are even able to report the accident has occurred. As part of the procedure you will need to fill in a report, see the company approved doctor and fill in the right documentation.
The problem with this process is that the company doctor is working with the insurance company and thus your best interests are not at heart. Instead, it is their mission to ensure that they are paying you as little as possible, either by denying the incident was caused at work, suggesting it was due to a pre-existing medical condition or claiming that the injury is not so bad.
This is why it is so critical to not only see a company approved doctor but also your own personal doctor for a second opinion. This is also why it is important to speak to a work injury attorney that understands the law and the inner workings of worker’s insurance companies.
