Permanent Injuries And Permanent Partial Disability Can Go Beyond Initial Costs
When will I feel better? How long will I be away from work? The first concern an injured worker has is about his or her recovery. Unfortunately, some on-the-job accidents lead to permanent physical impairments through loss of limbs, nerve damage or something else.
In these cases, workers’ compensation benefits must go beyond the initial cost of recovery and temporary wage loss. At Lindberg McLaughlin, P.C., we can help you pursue disability benefits through your employer’s insurance policy or through the Minnesota Special Compensation Fund to address your long-term care needs. We have been dedicated to serving workers’ compensation clients for more than 30 years.

Do Your Benefits Reflect All Financial Consequences Of Your Disability?
No amount of money can make things right when you have suffered an injury at work. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation settlements by nature involve placing a specific dollar amount on the type of injury sustained.
Permanent partial and permanent total disability benefits in Minnesota are calculated based on a specific schedule of injuries and their values. The compensation package one receives is correlated to the wage loss involved and the body part that has been permanently damaged.
Calculating disability compensation in this manner is highly impersonal and does not always reflect the full scope of consequences an injured worker faces. Furthermore, simply getting a timely response in claim filing is an uphill battle — one you should not have to worry about when you are under financial and medical stress, trying to recover your life as much as possible. We are here to advocate for your needs and provide guidance through the workers’ comp settlement process.
