Workers’ Compensation

If you are injured in the course of your employment, you may be able to bring a claim for benefits under the Minnesota Workers’ Compensation Act.  If your employer is covered by workers’ compensation insurance, you will work directly with the insurance company to address recovery of lost wages, medical bills and other expenses arising from your work injury.

Until you are able to return to work, bills can add up and often become overwhelming. The longer you are out of work, the more you and your family are inconvenienced while medical bills and lost wages take their toll.

If you would like an advocate to step in and help you through this process to ensure that the insurer and your employer are not attempting to take advantage of you, we can help file your claim and lead you through this process.

  • Lost wages, total or partial
