After sustaining an injury due to another’s negligence, no one wants to worry about litigation or lawsuits. They usually face more pressing questions like: Will I physically recover? Will I be able to return to work? How can I afford my medical bills? Over time, the harms and losses caused by pain, disability and the cost of dealing with both can wear on a person.

Employees of all industries run the risk of workplace injuries. These injuries can threaten your health and ability to work. Fortunately, injured workers can apply for workers’ compensation benefits to protect their physical and financial well-being. Workers’ compensation benefits can cover medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, permanent partial disability and necessary work training if you cannot fulfill your old tasks.
All Minnesota and Wisconsin employers are required to provide workers’ compensation benefits, which compensate individuals injured in the workplace. Many workers are hesitant to “take legal action against their employer.” However, a workers’ compensation claim is not a lawsuit against your company; it serves as a type of insurance coverage.
Unlike a typical personal injury claim, fault does not impact your benefit eligibility.
Whether your actions, a piece of faulty equipment or dangerous conditions cause the injury, you may be eligible for benefits.
However, there is a statute of limitations within which you must file your claim, or you could forfeit your right to benefits. You must report the accident to your employer within 30 days of the accident. After that, state law dictates how long you have to officially file your claim and collect benefits.
We understand that facing a debilitating injury or disease is an incredibly stressful experience. In addition to concern over your physical health, you may be worried about your financial security and wonder if you will ever be able to return to work.
