Helping Injured Workers Receive Fair Compensation
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, we have 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. We serve clients statewide and use technology to minimize travel and inconvenience for our clients.
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 — Wage replacement benefits can pay up to two-thirds of your weekly wage while you are unable to work.
- Medical treatment — Dealing with medical bills after a work injury can be stressful. We will help you get the benefits you need to heal.
- Vocational rehabilitation — When it is time to return to work, benefits may be available to job retraining or other rehabilitation.
- Compensation for permanent impairment — Permanent partial disability benefits can provide support for workers who have been permanently injured.
Unfortunately, valid workers’ compensation claims are regularly denied. If you are having trouble getting the benefits you need after a workplace injury, you have rights and options to pursue what you deserve. If you have recently been injured on the job or have had benefits denied under an existing claim, it is wise to seek experienced help. At Reitan Law Office, PLLC, we handle workers’ compensation claims at every stage – from the initial injury through any negotiations, hearings or appeals. We do not stop until we have exhausted every option available for our clients.
Our attorneys 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. In addition to supporting your physical recovery, seeking and documenting medical treatment can strengthen your chances for financial compensation.
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.
