YOUR WORKERS’ COMP LEGAL TEAM SERVING MOORHEAD, MINNESOTA
If you have never had an injury on the job before, you’re lucky. If you have, you might not know that workers’ compensation is a program that is supposed to help you get back on your feet. It was created to assist injured workers with medical bills, meeting their household budgets while they are off work, and pay fair compensation for permanent injuries. However, many of our Minnesota clients are not treated fairly by the workers’ comp insurer. If you feel that way — or even if you just have questions about Minnesota’s complex workers’ compensation system — the workers’ compensation lawyers at Schneider Law Firm can help. Here is some information about workers’ comp in Minnesota:
UNDERSTANDING WORKERS’ COMP IN MINNESOTA
Minnesota’s workers’ compensation should cover medical costs that are necessary and reasonable to treat the work injury. At the Schneider Law Firm, our workers’ compensation attorneys will work with you to make sure the insurer holds up its end of the bargain, so you can make the fullest recovery possible. The law in Minnesota covers expenses such as:
- Hospital visits
- Doctors’ appointments
- Diagnostic tests
- Prescription medications
- Your mileage to appointments, in many cases
In addition to the medical expenses, you may also need wage replacement benefits like temporary total disability and temporary partial disability benefits if you are off work entirely or suffer a loss of earnings due to the injury. We can help with that as well.

The attorneys at Schneider Law Firm represent hard working people who have experienced a wrongful denial of their workers’ compensation benefits. When our clients are denied, we work aggressively on their behalf. That way, our clients can focus on getting better so they can return to work. If you need help with your workers comp claim in Moorhead, please call the Schneider Law Firm for a free consultation.
HOW CAN SCHNEIDER LAW HELP WITH MY EXISTING WORKERS’ COMP CLAIM?
What if you are already receiving workers’ compensation benefits? Are you sure that you are getting all the benefits you’re entitled to under Minnesota law? We can help with problems related to Minnesota worker’s compensation, such as:
- You may not be getting all the medical treatment you need. Sometimes, workers’ comp insurers try to limit the amount of money they spend on care. You may need additional services so you can return to work as soon as possible. There are also options if your injury was severe enough that you cannot return to work.
- You may not be getting the wage-replacement benefits the law provides. That’s because Minnesota worker’s comp laws base your benefits on an average of your weekly wages. Sometimes, it can be calculated incorrectly by your employer and the insurer. We want to make sure you are getting all the benefits you deserve.
- You may not be getting coverage for your prescriptions. Your medical care should also include any prescription medication that you need to take as part of your treatment. If you are experiencing denials of claim with your prescription requests, we can help.
