The Minnesota Workers' Compensation Act was enacted to ensure that injured workers would be provided with medical care for work-related injuries and illnesses and with financial compensation equal to a percentage of lost wages. In theory, it is supposed to be easy for an injured worker to obtain these benefits. In reality, the system is more complicated than that.
