THE IMPORTANCE OF WORKERS COMPENSATION INSURANCE
Sept. 9, 2015
If you were injured at work, your employer’s Workers’ Compensation insurance should be able to take care of you properly. However, don’t always count on that on happening. Talk to an experienced Workers’ Compensation lawyer in Minnesota to ensure you get the benefits that you deserve. Workers’ Compensation is good at collecting premiums and denying claims as soon as possible. This makes hiring an experienced lawyers important.
Workers’ Compensation in Minnesota allows an injured worker to make a claim for wage loss if you can only work part time for lesser pay, wage loss if you can’t work at all, medical expenses, job placement, out of pocket expenses as a result of the injury, retraining, attorney’s fees, permanent benefits among other benefits. However it never guarantees that the insurer will pay such benefits or even tell you what they are specifically.
If you sustained an injury, such as breaking your leg at work, it would then be an issue of Worker’s Compensation. You would then have to work with your employer and the insurance company to ensure that every injury-related expense you have will be covered. You may also be entitled to additional expenditures for your injuries as a part of the compensation.
If your employer’s Workers’ Compensation carrier is paying all your wage loss, bills and out of pocket expenses, you probably do not need a Minnesota lawyer to help you. However those instances are rare. The best way to protect yourself and to get what you deserve is to understand your rights. You must have an independent medical exam immediately and provide proper medical documentation of your injury for the best chance at being approved for benefits. An experienced Minnesota lawyer understands the process and can ensure you do everything thoroughly to increase your odds of receiving the benefits you deserve after your injury.
Take a look at your company’s policy regarding Worker’s Compensation. You need to understand just how comprehensive the coverage is to account for any and all injuries that could happen at your place of work. If you sustain an injury on the job, you need to consult with a legal professional quickly who can assess your case to give you peace of mind.
