Filing A Workers’ Compensation Claim In Minnesota
You have been hurt on the job and you are wondering what to do after a work injury. You need help to find out your next steps, whether you claim is filed correctly and how to get by while you recover.
I am Minnesota-based attorney, James R. Nethercut. I can help you get the answers you need and the worker’s compensation you deserve if you live or work in the north metro area of the Twin Cities (or anywhere in Minnesota). I can guide you through the complexities of filing a worker’s compensation claim.
Immediately After Your Injury You Should …
For many people, getting started on a workers’ compensation claim is difficult. This is primarily because most people do not know how to start or what to do. Below are some steps you should take:
- Let your employer know immediately if you are injured at work: This is especially important because after 14 days of injury, your employer may be able to deny your claim.
- Get medical help: You should always get medical help if you think you are injured. In addition, by getting medical help, you establish your injury legally and can begin estimating how much compensation and time off work you need to recover.
- Consult with a lawyer: There are all kinds of reasons that insurance companies may deny your claim, and these denials can be contested. As your legal counsel, I can help you appeal your claim and maximize your benefits.
