If You Have A Workplace Injury, You Deserve Compensation
Workers’ compensation insurance was designed to protect both workers and employers from the consequences of on-the-job injuries. While many people associate workers’ comp claims with dangerous or hazardous occupations, such as construction site workers, injuries can arise in any type of environment.
Whether you have been injured in a car accident while driving on the job, or have taken a fall at the office, an experienced workplace injury lawyer can positively influence the compensation you receive for your medical and financial needs.

Medical Benefits And Work Accidents Throughout Minnesota
Workplace injuries can generally be divided into three categories:
- Injuries caused on the job
- Wear-and-tear from repetitive stress or repetitive motion injuries (Gillette-type injuries)
- Occupational diseases and exposure to harmful elements at work
These injuries carry long-term consequences related to medical care, the financial burden of being unable to work during recovery, reduced mobility that inhibits job performance and the threat of being unable to return to your chosen profession.
Everything from serious injuries to the back, the neck and spinal cord to knee replacement surgery could be considered grounds for a workers’ comp claim, but proving the connection between your injury and your workplace can be challenging. Depending upon the circumstances, your employer or their insurance provider may assert that the injury was caused by actions in your personal life, rather than your job.
