What if I get hurt at my employer's recent party?


Many workers in the greater Twin Cities area may have attended a recent holiday party, or just an end-of-the-year event, in recent days. While hopefully everyone managed to stay safe at these events, there is always a chance an employee can get injured at a social event like the annual holiday party. Of course, this applies to other company outings that take place at other times of the year as well.

Types of disability payments: permanent total disability


Previous posts here have discussed the different types of disability benefits that victims of workplace accidents in Minnesota can receive through the state's Workers' Compensation program. To this point, this blog has talked about temporary total disability payments and permanent partial disability payments. The first type of benefit pays a worker who, for a period of time, cannot return to work at all. The second type of benefit pays a worker who may be able to go back to work eventually, but who will have some sort of permanent handicap on account of the injury.

Workers compensation benefit: permanent partial disability


A recent post on this blog talked about temporary total disability benefits, or TTD, which are the type of benefits an injured Minnesota worker gets when he or she is hurt on the job and needs to take a few weeks or months off to recover. While arguable, TTD is perhaps the easiest benefit to understand.

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.
