Understanding Workers’ Compensation in Minnesota

Here’s what you need to know about workers’ comp cases in Minnesota. MN workers’ compensation is supposed to cover all reasonable and necessary medical costs stemming from the injury that you suffered while at work or on the job. At the Schneider Law Firm, we can work with you to ensure the workers’ compensation insurer pays for the medical care you need to treat the work injury. Depending on the nature of your injury, you may get coverage for:

  • Hospital visits
  • Doctors’ appointments
  • Diagnostic tests
  • Prescription medications
  • Surgeries
  • Your mileage

You may also be entitled to wage-replacement benefits if you miss work as a result of your injuries. 

What If My Workers’ Comp Claim Was Denied?

We work with clients whose claims have been denied or who were offered fewer benefits than they are entitled to under the law. The Schneider Law Firm works aggressively to present our clients cases so they can focus on healing and, hopefully, getting back to work. We would be happy to speak with you about workers’ compensation in Minnesota, so call for a free consultation today. 

How Can an Attorney Help With My Existing Claim?

If you’re already receiving workers’ compensation benefits, you may still need a lawyer to ensure you’re getting the full benefits you deserve. Here are some of the problems we can help with:

  • You aren’t getting the medical treatment you need. Insurers often deny or limit care that injured Minnesotans need to get back to work. 
  • Your benefits aren’t the right amount. Minnesota workers’ compensation benefits, are based largely on your “average weekly wage,” which some employers and insurers calculate incorrectly. We’ll help ensure you’re getting the benefits you’re entitled to. 
  • Your prescriptions aren’t covered. Reasonable and necessary medical care should be covered by the workers’ comp insurer, including prescription drugs. We can help you fight wrongful denials of prescription medication.
