Minnesota law requires your employer to have Workers’ Compensation insurance, which means that you have a right to compensation if you are injured as an employee. Work injuries can happen in one traumatic event or they can occur over time, as often happens with heavy or repetitive workloads. Workers’ Compensation should pay for your lost wages and medical bills as long as they are related to your work injury. You may also be entitled to vocational rehabilitation and compensation for any permanent disability. Even if your bills are not yet denied, you should speak to the Workers’ Compensation team at Walther Goss Law to ensure that your rights are protected.
