On-The-Job Injuries Can Happen In Any Industry
Whether you work in a labor-intensive industry or are in a sedentary office job, most job injuries have one thing in common: they happen unexpectedly and often while doing even the most routine tasks.
Workers’ compensation insurance exists to protect employees and employers from the consequences of these unexpected and consequential situations. Even if you were at fault for the accident, or if it occurred while you were not on your workplace’s premises, the fact that it happened while you were working makes it eligible for filing a workers’ compensation claim.
At Lindberg McLaughlin, P.C., we protect and advocate for people who have been injured on the job throughout Minnesota and in St. Cloud. Attorney Jerry Lindberg has worked in this area of law for more than 30 years, and he is supported by a staff of legal professionals whose experience mirrors his long-standing career.

When Should I File A Workers’ Compensation Claim?
When the accident is perceived as relatively minor, as in an injury from lifting or a slip-and-fall accident on an office floor, many people feel inclined to just work through the pain. No matter what kind of injury you have suffered, you need to address your medical needs quickly.
We handle a wide range of workers’ compensation accident claims, including those that involve:
- Broken bones
- Back, neck and spinal cord injuries
- Car or truck accidents involving commercial drivers
- Construction site injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Falls from scaffolding or ladders
- Fatal accidents at work
Whether you perceive your accident to be minor or not, you should report it to your manager as soon as possible and take steps to address your health and well-being. You could cause a more severe injury by continuing to work through the pain, and you could put your potential for compensation at risk by failing to report the injury to your employer.
