Minnesota Lawyers Helping Injured Workers

Workers’ Compensation Law Firm Serving The Mankato Area

From a labor standpoint, Mankato is often considered to be the urban hub of a wider range of communities in Blue Earth County and Nicollet County, including Eagle Lake, Lake Crystal, St. Peter and North Mankato. Altogether, this region’s workforce fills more than 50,000 jobs (not including self-employment or farm jobs). Employment areas include the following:

  • Manufacturing
  • Retail
  • Food service
  • Health care

Five postsecondary institutions in the area are also noteworthy employment centers. All in all, there is a great variety of work environments in which employees are sometimes injured or fall ill due to occupational diseases. These injured workers need financial help as much as they need quality health care. Evaluating an injured employee’s workers’ compensation eligibility is the first step toward recovery.

Midwest Disability Work Comp is a reliable and helpful source of information and assistance for injured workers in the Mankato area. Our lawyers guide such workers through the process of maximizing their workers’ compensation. This may include overcoming roadblocks when, for example, a workers’ comp insurer stops paying benefits before a worker is fit to return to their job.
