Minnesota Lawyers for the Injured Workers
What Should I Do If I've Been Injured At Work  

What Should I Do When Injured at Work?

The first step you should take if you have been injured at work is to get medical attention. Your health should be your first concern. Call an ambulance if it is necessary and get the treatment and care you need so you can make the best recovery possible.

As soon as possible after your accident, you should also report your injury to your employer. The law sets limited time frames for reporting your claim. If you wait too long, you could lose out on workers' compensation benefits.

At Midwest Disability Work Comp in Minneapolis, we can help you understand the workers' compensation process. With more than 50 years of combined experience handling workers' comp claims in Minnesota, we can answer your questions about the process and help you secure benefits after an injury.

How Do I Get Benefits?

After you report your injury to your employer, your employer is required to report your injury to the employer's workers' comp insurance company. The insurer will then investigate your claim to determine whether your injuries were related to your work.

You are entitled to benefits regardless of fault so long as you were injured on the job. This means that you do not need to prove your employer was negligent in order to receive coverage for medical costs and lost wages. Instead, you will only need to show that your injury occurred during the normal course of your work.

If your claim for workers' comp is denied, our Minnesota workers’ comp lawyers can help you through the process of appealing your denied claim, if an appeal is appropriate in your case. Our lawyers are committed to securing the benefits you need.
