Work Injury Claims In Minnesota
Our attorneys are well-versed in addressing claims across the spectrum of occupations, including:
- Construction worker injuries
- Office worker injuries
- Injuries suffered in the health care industry, including occupational diseases and injuries suffered by nurses, CNAs, health aids and more
- Injuries to state workers
- Injuries to retail workers
Many severe injuries may require surgery as part of the proper treatment. Other injuries — even seemingly minor injuries— may lead to chronic pain that makes continuing to work seem impossible. After suffering an injury at work, some individuals begin to suffer from depression related to their injury. We work hard to help workers get the medical care they need and full benefits to which they are entitled to under the law. Our experience covers all types of injury, work-related medical condition or occupational disease such as:
- Injuries to the limbs and joint: An accident may affect any limb or joint in the body, or involve multiple injuries to a limb. We know how to work with clients who have suffered injuries from the shoulder to the fingertips and everywhere in between, as well as injuries to the legs and knees.
- Injuries to the head, back and spinal cord: Trauma to the head, or any activity that causes harm to the back can be debilitating. Getting medical care and treatment for injuries to the head, back or spine is vital. Whether you have suffered an injury to the spine, such as a herniated disc, a severe injury to the back from an accident or overexertion, or head trauma, we are here to help you.
- Nerve injuries and repetitive strain: Workers in offices, factories, warehouses and construction sites can all suffer injuries that develop over time due to overexertion and repetitive motions. Most people have heard of carpal tunnel injuries. However, repetitive stress injuries may include a wide range of injuries to other parts of the body. Repetitive motions often develop into serious medical conditions that can make work extremely painful.
