Being injured on the job is one of the most difficult things that a person can face. This is because the injury is painful and can take the time to heal. There is also the fact that the injury can take away the ability to work and earn a meaningful wage. Basically, the injury is life-changing and that’s why you need a southern Minnesota workers’ compensation attorney helping you with your workers’ comp or Social Security Disability claim.
Workers’ compensation is in place in Minnesota to help workers injured on the job move forward with healing. An injured worker can receive wage replacement benefits that replace a percentage of their lost wages due to their inability to work, medical benefits, and vocational benefits that can rehabilitate them to return to work.
Once the work injury occurs, it is a must to report it to your employer. You also want to quickly seek medical treatment and file your claim. It is good to get the help of your attorney as soon as possible so you have the advice and guidance you need when making your claim. If you have already filed and you’ve been denied, you can appeal the denial. Sometimes denials happen due to simple omissions and errors.
