Work Comp Benefits

Minnesota Work Comp Benefits Lawyer

An injury that occurs in the workplace can be devastating because of the financial hardship that is caused. When you are no longer able to do your job because of an injury, you also lose the income and that is why you need to take advantage of the workers’ compensation benefits that you are entitled to.

Through workers’ compensation benefits, you will be able to pay your living expenses while you are healing from your injuries. You also receive the medical care that you need and possible vocational rehabilitation to help you get back into the workforce as soon as you can. What this means for you is that a work-related injury does not have to mean the end of the road. There is hope for the future.

Workers’ Compensation Law

The law requires employers to provide employees with the equipment and safety training to ensure a safe working environment. Unfortunately, most that do become injured on the job have difficulty acquiring the workers’ compensation benefits that they need to cover their rehabilitation, medical bills, and lost wages. This is the challenge that Sundquist Law Firm works hard to help clients overcome.

You can expect to receive help with a wide array of worker’s compensation issues and cases that include

  • long- and short-term disability
  • Claim denials
  • Reopening of claims
  • Appeals
  • Vocational rehabilitation

This includes the filling out and the filing of all of the forms associated with specific actions that must be taken to help you acquire your benefits. In other words, you don’t have to do all of the legwork because it is done for you. Even if your claim is denied initially, that does not mean you will never receive benefits. All that it means is that your attorney will utilize a new strategy that can lead to approval.

Common Injuries

The most common injuries are back, neck, hand, wrist, arm, shoulder, and knee injuries. Any one of these areas of the body that are injured can make it very difficult to function on a daily basis. These injuries occur due to falls, falling objects, lack of a safe work environment, and so much more. When one of these injuries or events that have led to an injury happens to you, you need to talk to a qualified workers’ compensation lawyer as soon as possible so you can submit your workers’ compensation claim or so you can explore other options that may benefit you even more.
