What is workers’ compensation?

Minnesota employees who sustain injuries due to a workplace accident, occupational disease or other condition affected by their job responsibilities or environments may be eligible for workers’ compensation. The benefits provided through this program are designed to help you when a workplace injury or illness occurs. Understanding the basic premise of the system is important for you or anyone who may need to file a claim.

Falls primary cause of construction citations

If you work in any type of construction job in Minnesota, you are well aware of the dangers that you face every day. You may well have even witnessed a work accident at some point. What a lot of people may not realize is that many construction site accidents occur when workers are performing their regular job duties. It is not just in unusual circumstances that these things happen. A scaffolding fall, a trench collapse or even being hit by falling debris are just a few examples of situations that are common in these incidents.

What are repetitive motion disorders?

Minnesota residents who have a dangerous occupation such as construction understand that they face the everyday risk of a work accident. However, people in any type of job can suffer a work-related injury and that means even you can be impacted by an on-the-job injury or medical condition. These experiences do not always result from workplace accidents but can arise from a person performing their regular job duties.

Minnesota farm workers face high risk of death

Farming has long been known to be a dangerous occupation. The use of heavy equipment and machinery along with sometimes long hours can put farm workers at risk for serious injuries due to an on-the-job accident. However, the risk associated with farming appears to be greater in Minnesota and other parts of the Midwest than in the rest of the country, especially on small and family-owned farms.

Minnesota workers’ compensation death benefits

Minnesota employees who are injured in job-related accidents can be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits in some cases. These benefits can cover lost wages, out-of-pocket medical expenses and vocational retraining. When a workplace accident claims the life of a victim, the workers’ compensation program may pay death benefits to surviving family members. Therefore, it is important for people to understand what these benefits are and how eligibility is defined.
