Qualifying Injuries for Workers’ Compensation

What injuries qualify for workers’ compensation benefits? Essentially, any injury or illness that was caused, aggravated, or accelerated by work activities qualifies as a workers’ comp injury. Many cases involve multiple injuries suffered in the same accident. Some involve a single injury and then consequential injuries that resulted from the initial injury, all of which should be covered by workers’ compensation. Our Minnesota workers’ compensation injury lawyers can help.

Qualifying Injuries for Long-Term Disability

What injuries qualify for long-term disability benefits? The answer to that question can hinge on the language in the policy itself. For the most part, if an injury or illness prevents you from doing your job for a substantial period of time, you should qualify for benefits under most policies. Proving that you qualify for long-term disability benefits can be challenging, and maintaining benefits for the duration of your recovery even more so. We are ready to help.

Physical Injuries & Illnesses

Our attorneys help people who have suffered from injuries and illnesses of all types, including physical injuries and illnesses such as:

We also handle cases involving aggravation of pre-existing conditions. These cases are complex, but if an existing medical condition is aggravated or accelerated because of work activities, you are eligible for workers’ comp benefits.

Mental Injuries & Illnesses

Injuries are not always physical. Mental conditions, such as depression and anxiety, caused by workplace activities also entitle you to workers’ compensation benefits. You may also be entitled to benefits under your long-term disability policy.

In many cases, mental conditions are referred to as consequential injuries. They are the result of physical injuries that were suffered in the workplace. For example, a person who suffers a neck or back injury in a workplace accident may begin to suffer from depression because of all of the new obstacles he or she has to deal with because of the physical harm suffered. That worker is entitled to compensation for both the back injury and the depression.
