Workers’ Compensation Claims

Pursue Recovery With Confidence

A workplace injury can threaten more than your physical well-being: it can cause medical bills to pile up, prevent you from earning wages and threaten your family’s financial security. In these situations, workers’ compensation payments can provide much-needed relief, helping you regain a sense of stability and covering the cost of treatments that can reclaim your health.

If you have been hurt on the job in the Twin Cities metro or anywhere in Minnesota, you need more than an assertive attorney – you need a straightforward, supportive ally who can evaluate your situation, determine whether you have valid grounds for a workers’ compensation claim and conduct the thorough research necessary to advance such a claim. With nearly four decades of legal experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants, Kirk Thompson is confident in navigating the intricacies of the workers’ compensation system. He will meet with you personally to understand your needs, help you understand your options, and chart a clear course toward your recovery.

Workers’ Compensation Claim Basics

All Minnesota employers are required to maintain workers’ compensation insurance. Workers’ compensation claims can be filed for a variety of injuries, including those caused by:

  • A crash, collapse, fall or fire
  • Repetitive stress (for example, carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Workplace activity that aggravated a preexisting medical condition

Minnesota has a no-fault workers’ compensation system, which means that it does not matter who is at fault for your injury. You must, however, be able to demonstrate the extent of your injury and the degree to which it impedes your ability to work. Mr. Thompson has the medical knowledge necessary to obtain this documentation, and the legal skill to litigate your claim if necessary.
