Minnesota Worker’s Compensation Laws
In Minnesota, businesses are required to provide worker’s compensation to any employees who are injured on the job. This usually means increased convenience for everyone, since employees do not have to file lawsuits in order to be compensated for injuries on the job.
The trade-off, however, is that employees cannot sue for additional compensation from their employers once they have received worker’s compensation. Sometimes the compensation provided by this program is inadequate. For one thing, it does not include damages for reduced quality of life or other emotional suffering. Sometimes employees do not even receive adequate compensation to cover all of their medical and living expenses if they are out of work due to their injuries.

Filing a Complaint
Although an employer cannot be sued, due to worker’s compensation laws, in some situations a third party is involved in an employee’s injuries. Some examples:
- If an employee is hurt by a faulty product while at work, the manufacturer of that product can be held liable.
- If an employee is injured due to unsafe conditions on third party property, the owner of that property may be responsible for the injury.
- If an employee is injured by a third party while at the employee’s place of work, that third party and potentially his or her employer can be found responsible.
If one or more of these situations applies to you, you may have grounds for a Workplace Injury Lawsuit.
