What is Workers’ Compensation?
Fundamentally, workers’ compensation is benefits that you deserve if you have been hurt on the job.
Workers’ compensation laws protect employees injured on the job. Your employer has an obligation to provide safe working conditions. It might not matter who is at fault, what job you were doing, or what company you work for. If you have been hurt at work, you may be entitled to compensation.
These laws were put in place to protect everyday people like you from harsh working conditions. If you can’t work due to an injury, workers’ compensation is meant to fill in some of the gaps. You still have obligations like bills, rent, and feeding your family. Workers’ compensation aids you in recovering, and helps you pay what you need to pay.
According to the law, all places of employment must carry some form of insurance. This means that if you are successful in your claim, someone will be paying. You don’t have to worry about your employer not having the money that you need.
What Injuries Qualify for Workers Compensation?
Any injury, illness, or condition that occurs at work or because of what you do at work qualifies. This also covers injuries that gradually develop over time.
If you have a broken bone due to a fall or something heavy hitting you, you may be covered by workers’ compensation laws. In addition, if you are responsible for engaging in a repetitive task, such as cutting meat or typing, this may cause strain. You may be able to receive money if you have a condition.
You need to keep the following in mind: even if you did not receive the first injury at work, you may still be owed money. An injury that gets worse at work may qualify you for workers’ compensation. For example, if you have a bum knee that is aggravated due to walking and lifting, you might be eligible.
Toxins, pollutants, and asbestos can cause unseen harm. Unsafe working conditions can cause chronic harm that lasts for decades. Lung, heart, and other internal injuries are covered by workers’ compensation laws.
The state of Minnesota protects its citizens’ mental health. Our laws provide compensation when:
- Mental stress causes a physical injury
- Physical trauma causes a mental injury
- Mental stress causes a mental injury
Certain emotional issues, such as PTSD, can make you eligible to receive benefits under the law. You should keep in mind that mental stress causing a physical injury may be a little bit more difficult to prove. The same is true with mental stress causing a mental injury.
For example, if a cop or firefighter pulls someone out of a burning building, that might scar them mentally. In certain circumstances, they will be able to receive workers’ compensation. Other situations are not as likely to make people qualified to receive workman’s comp for mental injuries.
Reaching out to a lawyer will help you understand if your injury makes you eligible.

Your employer needs to cover the cost of your medical care, after you have been hurt at work. This includes travel expenses. Sometimes, insurance companies will say that you do not need certain treatments, but you should keep in mind that they are required to pay the total cost of your medical care. If your insurance company is not paying as much as they should, an attorney can help you out.
While you are injured, you cannot work. Workers’ compensation gives you the help that you deserve. The exact amount you are paid depends on your job, and the degree of your injury. Some injuries are permanent, while others are temporary. Partial injuries are different from when someone is completely taken out of commission. These all have their own levels of compensation.
This is legal speak for retraining. Some injuries make it impossible for an employee to return to their job or their employer. There are other cases where the employee can return to their previous place of work, but require certain accommodations once they return. In some situations, the spouse needs to be able to support themselves. They may qualify for retraining.
When someone succumbs to their injuries or their disease, the family could be compensated for burial costs, and receive other forms of compensation.
Timeline for Workers Compensation

The statute of limitations for workers’ compensation cases is 3 years. This means that you need to file a claim no more than 3 years after you have been injured. If you try to file after that, the court will not accept your case.
