Workers' Compensation Attorney in Minneapolis
The workers’ compensation process in Minneapolis, Minnesota, seems pretty easy on paper. You get injured in your workplace, file a claim, and then recover benefits. Unfortunately, while this is the standard process, in some cases, that’s not how things usually turn out.
The first thing you need to know is that workers’ compensation is a form of insurance, just like your auto insurance coverage. Workers’ comp insurance companies make money by minimizing losses. To these companies, paying out your claim is considered a loss. So, when you file a claim with them, they may offer to settle it for way less than you deserve.
That’s when the legal battles begin, something you should never do without an experienced Minneapolis workers’ compensation lawyer in your corner. If that’s what you need, you’ve come to the right place. Fill out our free case evaluation form today to get started.

How Does Workers’ Compensation Work?
Workers' compensation insurance covers employees who are injured or become ill in the course of their employment. The benefits typically cover medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and lost wages up to a certain limit.
What Benefits Am I Entitled To?
It depends on the specifics of your case. Generally, workers' compensation benefits may include:
- Medical expenses related to the injury or illness
- Wage replacement for time spent off work while recovering
- Rehabilitation and vocational training
- Compensation for permanent disabilities
What Damages Does Workers’ Compensation Insurance Not Cover?
This insurance does not usually cover damages such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, or punitive damages. Instead, it is designed to provide specific benefits for medical expenses, rehabilitation, and lost wages.
How Soon Do I Have To Report the Injury in Minnesota?
In Minnesota, you must report a workplace injury to your employer within 14 days to qualify for workers' compensation benefits. Failing to report the injury within this timeframe could jeopardize your claim.
What Are the Elements of a Valid Claim?
We’ve always said that each case is unique. Even so, a valid workers' compensation claim must satisfy the following elements:
- The injury occurred while performing work-related duties.
- The injury was reported to the employer within the specified timeframe.
- The claim was filed within the statutory deadlines.
- The medical treatment and expenses are well-documented.
