Workers' Compensation Archives

Types of disability payments: temporary total disability

As this blog has explained before, injured workers in the greater Twin Cities area will ordinarily be able to get help through Minnesota's workers' compensation system. Primarily, these benefits cover medical expenses and lost wages following an accident.

Workers in Minnesota at risk in fulfillment warehouses

Under the wrong circumstances, any workplace can be hazardous for the people who work there. The health care and construction industries are notorious for workplace injuries and large numbers of workers' compensation claims. Recently, however, online order fulfillment centers, like the Amazon warehouse facility in Shakopee, have also come under greater scrutiny from regulators and watchdog organizations.

Fighting for injured workers in Minnesota

If you suffer an injury at your place of work in Minnesota, you may be limited to seeking medical care and reimbursement for lost wages through the state's workers' compensation system. While the notion of filing a workers' compensation claim may not seem too complicated, it is often anything but straightforward. This is because when you file a claim for workers' compensation, you are basically throwing yourself on the mercy of an insurance company.

States did not shift workers' compensation burden to feds

When workers are injured on the job in Minnesota, they are typically required to rely on workers' compensation benefits to make up for the financial shortfalls and losses that occurred as a result of their injuries. Where workers' compensation benefits just can't cut it, or in cases in which the injury results in a long-term disability, an injured worker may also rely on Social Security Disability Insurance from the federal government - if they qualify.

Hotel housekeeper safety concerns

Many people associate workers' compensation with injuries that happen from a standard work task. This means that employees in high-risk industries like logging, fishing, construction or police work are most affected. While people in those fields are certainly at risk, this assumption overlooks another area where injuries happen: from interactions with the public.
