What Benefits Are Available Through Workers’ Comp In Minnesota?
At Nicolet Law Office, S.C., we handle a wide range of workers’ comp claims, including those involving serious injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, limb loss/amputations, hearing/vision loss, burns and electrical injuries, spinal cord injuries, occupational diseases and repetitive use trauma, just to name a few.

While benefits can vary depending on the situation, common workers’ compensation benefits available under Minnesota law include:
- Wage-loss benefits: You are entitled to wage-loss benefits to cover a portion of your lost income.
- Medical benefits: Workers’ comp will cover medical care for your work-related injury, so long as it is necessary and reasonable.
- Vocational rehabilitation benefits: If you are unable to return to your old job or employer, you may be able to seek vocational rehabilitation benefits, which may include job counseling or possibly new job training.
- Permanent damage/disability benefits: If your work-related injury leads to permanent damage or the loss of function of a body part, workers’ comp will provide compensation.
