According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in one year, over 63,000 nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses were reported among Minnesota’s private industry employers, resulting in a rate of 3.1 cases for every 100 full-time equivalent workers. Yet, although these individuals survived these accidents, it does not mean they did not suffer devastating and life-changing repercussions as a result, such as substantial income loss and astronomical medical expenses.
For these reasons, if you sustained a work-related injury or became sick on the job, you need to reach out to a Minnesota workers’ compensation lawyer as soon as possible to fight for the justice and compensation you deserve. Fortunately, with Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers, on your side, you will not have to take on this legal battle alone. Rather, you can focus on your recovery while these attorneys fight for the financial damages you are entitled to.
If you have been injured in an accident at work or are suffering from a work-related injury, it probably feels like the deck is stacked against you. The truth is, you’re right; it is stacked against you. Your employer – no matter how much they like you – is worried about their own bottom line. Their workers’ compensation insurance carriers are worried about their bottom line. The hospital is worried about getting paid for your medical treatment.
The Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers law firm was founded to help those injured in an accident recover and rebuild. Today, not only have our experienced and dedicated attorneys and legal staff done just that, but we have also made sure that each of our clients gets the personal attention they need and the respect they deserve.
As a result of this drive, hard work, and dedication, our firm has helped thousands of injured individuals and collected millions of dollars on their behalf through settlement negotiations and jury verdicts. For instance, in one of our most recent workers’ compensation cases, we helped a client reach a settlement that allowed him to receive over 95 percent of the total value for lost wages and permanent disability with all his medical expenses paid.
In Minnesota, the attorneys of Nicolet Law Office are looking out for the legal rights and the financial and personal well-being of injured workers like you. Our only goal is to make sure you get the full workers’ compensation benefits you deserve for your medical expenses and lost wages. We are not successful unless you have what you need to get better and make ends meet after suffering a work-related injury. We handle workers’ compensation claims on a contingency basis, which means we don’t collect a fee unless you collect financial benefits.
Workers’ compensation refers to a no-fault system designed to provide benefits to employees who have been injured on the job or as the result of their employment activities. This system was also set up to help limit an employer’s liability since employees cannot sue their employer for these types of accidents. Instead, they can bring a workers’ compensation claim that allows them to receive medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs for the injuries they suffered on the job.
These work-related injuries typically involve a condition caused, accelerated, or aggravated by their employment activities, such as:
If an employee suffers one of these injuries or qualifying diseases, all they need to show to obtain compensation for their work-related harm is that their employment activities were a substantial contributing factor to their disability and need for medical care.
Workers’ compensation benefits are paid whether the employee or the employer caused the accident. Typically, these benefits include wage loss, vocational rehabilitation, and medical rehabilitation, such as:
However, to help ensure you receive these benefits, it is important to reach out to a Minnesota workers’ compensation lawyer, such as those at Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers, promptly after your accident. These attorneys can go over your work-related incident, determine which benefits you may be entitled to, and fight for maximum compensation.
Even though workers’ compensation insurance covers almost every employee in Minnesota, some workers are exempt from this system.
