What Should I Do After I’m Injured at Work?  

As with all employees injured on the job in Minnesota, we advise our clients to take the following steps, in order, if they have been injured at work:

  • Seek medical attention, especially for injuries that are medical emergencies
  • Report your injury or illness to your employer
  • Contact the Schneider Law Firm as soon as possible

We can help you sort through the paperwork and guide you through what is often a complex process. Having a workers’ comp lawyer on your team right away can also help you avoid common mistakes and make certain your insurer treats you fairly.

We know that this is a stressful time, and in a perfect world it wouldn’t be necessary to call a lawyer right away. But it’s often the best thing you can do to protect yourself and maximize your recovery. Working with a lawyer at the Schneider Law Firm can  make the process less stressful so you can focus on healing.

What Can My Workers’ Comp Cover?

Workers’ compensation insurance is supposed to protect you if you get injured at work. It is supposed to cover all reasonable and necessary medical care. Depending on what kind of injury you’ve suffered, it may cover prescription drugs, surgeries, hospital visits, doctor appointments, and more.

For some people, full recovery isn’t when they get back to normal, but when they aren’t expected to recover any further. In this case, you may also be covered for your pain management or further medications and medical care.

However, your insurer may reject your claim, or offer you a settlement that isn’t sufficient to meet your projected costs. A workers’ comp lawyer can help you get what you’re owed from your insurer. 

How do you know if your workers’ comp settlement will be enough? The team at Schneider Law can help you consider issues like what medical care you will need and the amount you should receive in temporary total and temporary partial disability benefits for lost wages.
