Legal Question

Asked on: 11/10/10, 8:37 am

I am having medical problems due to a work comp injury. If the insurance company denies costs incured can I go after the employer that I worked for at time of injury?

The employer terminated my employment due to work restrictions from injury. Is the employer responseable for lost wages? Is there a time limit for collecting benifits?

Thank You for you help

Hi,

If the insurance company denies the costs your option is to appeal their decision under the Minnesota Workers' Compensation system. Depending on the type of benefit you are owed, and the nature of their denial, there are a variety of documents that need to be filed and there are time deadlines that are applicable. These time deadlines are specific to the facts of your case.

You can go after the workers compensation insurer for your wage loss and medical bills. You very likely are entitled to wage loss benefits and/or help finding work. Every case is fact specific and the law is complex. You should contact a lawyer about your situation. I give free consultations. Good luck
