Like most of your neighbors in Minnesota, you pride yourself on your work ethic. After all, you bring dedication and skill with you to the job site every day. Of course, if you sustain an injury at work, you may not be able to provide for yourself and your family. Even worse, you could have a long-term disability that prevents you from ever working again.
With most work-related injuries, filing a workers’ compensation claim is the best course of action. That is, the system usually provides compensation without requiring individuals to prove fault. In some cases, though, someone other than an employer or worker bears responsibility for injuries. In these situations, filing a third-party suit may be an effective strategy for ensuring you receive the compensation you deserve.
