After suffering a work injury, it is important for people to understand their legal rights. Under the workers’ compensation regime of both Minnesota and Wisconsin, there is a certain administrative process that must be undertaken to get compensation from employers when injuries occur during the course and scope of a worker’s employment.
Filing a workers’ compensation claim can involve the presentation of medical information and negotiations with workers’ compensation insurance carriers. A major issue in work injury cases is determining the precise extent of a worker’s physical injury. It is important to have evidence presented fairly, and to have an adequate assessment of an injured worker’s condition. An experienced work injury attorney can help injured parties get the compensation they deserve.
In some cases, claims outside of the workers’ compensation system are also possible. These cases include injuries that occurred outside of the scope of employment, that were caused by a third party, or that were caused intentionally. A major issue can often be whether workers’ compensation rules apply or not, and an experienced work injury attorney can help injured parties protect their rights.
