Minnesota’s workers’ compensation laws are designed to assist individuals who have been injured in the course and scope of their employment, regardless of fault. Compensable injuries may include physical injuries and/or occupational diseases that result from the work environment. The compensation provided for under workers’ compensation laws include a portion of your lost wages, medical expenses, and in some cases job retraining. You may also be entitled to compensation for a permanent disability.
Personal injury cases are complicated legal matters that require an experienced and skilled attorney to protect your legal rights and to ensure that you are treated fairly and are fully compensated for your injuries. It is always advantageous to have your own personal injury attorney who can advise and guide you through all the pitfalls and phases of this complex system and to ensure that you receive all of the many benefits that are available.
Meyer, Puklich & Merriam handles various types of personal injury claims.
If your disability has kept you out of work for 12 months or longer, or if you have medical support stating that you are unable to work for 12 months or longer, or your condition is expected to result in death, you should apply as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more benefits you may lose.
A disability is described as an inability “to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to results in death or which has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.”
