Your Guide Through The Minnesota Workers’ Compensation System
No matter where you work or what you do, there’s probably some risk of injury or illness at your job. If your work duties are a substantial contributing factor in causing, aggravating or accelerating a condition, you then have a viable workers’ compensation claim to make.
Some injuries occur instantaneously; some occur as a result of repetitive stress caused by repetitive motion. In either case, if the above standard applies, you have a claim.
I’m attorney James Nethercut. For more than 30 years, I’ve been helping injured workers in the north metro area of the Twin Cities and from throughout Minnesota get the compensation they need to move forward. I can help you:
- Make sure your claim has the best possible chance of success
- File a claim that has been unfairly denied
- Answer your questions about the process
- Determine whether you should pursue a third-party personal injury claim instead of or in addition to a workers’ compensation claim
What To Do After A Workplace Injury
It’s important to act quickly after an injury on the job. You should report your injury in writing to your employer as soon as it happens, or as soon as you are aware of it. When you go to the doctor, make sure you explain that the injury occurred at work. Save all records of the medical care you receive, and record the time and mileage traveling to and from doctor’s appointments. If your claim is denied — or you are concerned about being treated fairly by the system — you should consult a lawyer to make sure your rights are protected.
