What are workplace illnesses?

Most residents in Minnesota know that workers’ compensation benefits may be available to them if they are injured in an accident on the job. However, the state’s workers’ compensation program also provides benefits to you if you become ill due to a work-related situation or environment. The Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that an illness can be deemed work-related if exposure to certain substances caused the disease, exacerbated a pre-existing condition or contributed to the contraction of a disease.

What happens if your workers’ compensation claim is denied?

When filing for workers’ compensation in Minnesota, one of the things you need to be aware of is what to do in the event that your claim is denied. Claims can be rejected for many reasons but an initial denial does not need to be the end. You can pursue options to have your benefits claim reviewed further. When a claim is denied, you should receive a detailed explanation outlining the reasons for the denial. Knowing these reasons can help you to collect additional information that may help you ultimately get your claim approved.
