While any workplace injury or illness can have serious consequences, it may be somewhat comforting to know that Minnesota does provide workers’ compensation benefits for qualifying employees.
However, even when you know your basic rights, you may not comprehend the full extent of the benefits you could be entitled to receive.
There are various categories available by law, including lost wages that you miss out on when you’re unable to work. When you don’t understand the nature of your workers’ compensation benefits, you risk leaving money on the table.
Under the circumstances, it’s wise to retain an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to assist with filing your claim.
Our team at Arechigo & Stokka, P.A. has extensive knowledge of how the system functions, especially with respect to your lost wages.
