Minnesota laws that protect injured workers

Being injured in the workplace can lead to a lot of pain and suffering that would not have occurred if it were not for your working conditions. In addition to going through a lot of physical and emotional pain, you may also be financially impacted by your injury.

Seeking medical attention is necessary after an injury but will lead to significant bills. Additionally, taking the time to rest and recover after your injury will mean that you will lose wages during this time. You may even need to change jobs because of a disability you acquired as a result of the injury. Workers' compensation is intended to help injured workers financially after the accident. The following is an overview of the workers' compensation laws in place in Minnesota.

The deadlines in Minnesota

In Minnesota, you will only be eligible for workers' compensation if you meet certain deadlines. This means that you will need to inform your employer of your injury within 14 days of it occurring to gain maximum benefits. You will then have three years in which to recover the compensation you are owed.

The benefits that you may be eligible for

You will be entitled to full compensation for all reasonable and necessary medical treatment in relation to your injury, including compensation for travel expenses. You'll also be set to receive a percentage of the wages you lost due to the temporary or permanent disability you acquired.

If you have been injured in a Minnesota workplace, you should take swift action to claim the workers' compensation that you deserve.
