Years of repetitive movements can take a toll on the body. After years of lifting, twisting or typing, joints can wear down, muscles can become permanently strained and nerves can become damaged. Many people do not realize that these injuries entitle them to workers' compensation benefits. Under Minnesota law they are referred to as Gillette injuries.
At Reitan Law Office, PLLC, our family-owned firm has been helping injured Minnesotans navigate the workers' compensation system for more than 35 years. Our goal is twofold: first, to help you maximize your benefits; second, to guide you through the system as efficiently as possible.
We have three offices located throughout the Twin Cities and Southern Minnesota in Chaska, Mankato and Minneapolis.
If Years Of Wear And Tear Caused A Workplace Injury, You Are Entitled To Workers' Compensation Benefits

- Knee, elbow and shoulder injuries
- Back, neck and spine injuries

If you have suffered one of these injuries, or another injury caused by repetitive movements, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. Minnesota workers' comp benefits include:
