After a workplace accident, many people are forced off the job. No work usually means no paycheck. However, when injuries are the result of a workplace accident or were caused by years of job-related wear and tear on the body, workers' compensation benefits are available.
At Reitan Law Office, PLLC, our family has been helping injured workers navigate the workers' compensation system for more than 35 years. Our attorneys have one goal: getting you the workers' compensation benefits you need to pay your bills, treat your injuries and continue supporting your family.
Our offices are conveniently located throughout the Twin Cities and Southern Minnesota in Chaska, Mankato and Minneapolis.
Get The Workers' Compensation Benefits You Are Entitled To Receive
If your injury occurred at work, or while performing work duties, you are entitled to workers' compensation. Benefits include lost wages, medical treatment, vocational rehabilitation and compensation for permanent impairment.
Dealing with medical bills after a work injury can be stressful. We will help you get the benefits you need to heal.
At Reitan Law Office, PLLC, we have helped clients obtain workers' compensation benefits for a wide range of injuries, including everything from back and neck injuries, to repetitive stress injuries, such as carpal tunnel, and injuries from occupational exposure to toxic chemicals.
What To Do If You've Been Injured At Work
First — Tell your employer. He or she will start the necessary paperwork to get your workers' compensation claim started.
Second — Seek medical attention. Your health is the most important thing. Make sure you get treatment for your injuries.
Third — Contact a workers' compensation lawyer. If your wage loss or medical benefits are denied, hiring an experienced attorney is the best way to ensure you get the benefits you are entitled to receive.
