People who work in the industrial industry are at an increased risk for suffering devastating injuries or illnesses at work. This is, in part, due to the fact that the industry itself requires the use of heavy machinery, complex equipment, dangerous and toxic chemicals, and other tools and equipment that are inherently dangerous.
For this reason, when you suffer injuries at work, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. But accessing workers’ compensation for industrial workers has proven time and again to be more challenging than workers expect.
When your claim for benefits has been denied, or you are having trouble getting your workers’ compensation claim approved, reach out to a dedicated Minneapolis workers’ compensation attorney at Kemmitt, Sanford & Kramer for help. Schedule your free consultation when you call us at (877) 630-7338.

Industrial workers are employed in one of the most dangerous industries in Minnesota. Under Minnesota law, the vast majority of employers are required to protect their employees by purchasing workers’ compensation insurance policies.
If you are an industrial worker, you should be protected by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance policy. That is not to say that there are no employers out there who will break the law and not protect their employees by failing to purchase workers’ compensation insurance. If this happens, you may be entitled to all of the benefits that come with workers’ compensation, but you may also recover additional compensation by pursuing a civil claim against them.
If you were injured in an on-the-job industrial accident, you may have the right to workers’ compensation benefits while you are unable to continue working. If your claim for benefits is approved, you can expect the insurance company to cover all of your medical expenses, equipment, prescriptions, and other health care costs as they relate to your injuries.
The insurance company will also be required to provide you with disability benefits. Here, you could collect up to 66 percent of your average weekly earnings until you are able to return to work. Depending on the type of injury you sustained, there may be a maximum number of weeks that you are allowed to collect workers’ comp disability benefits.
You can find out how much your disability benefits will amount to, and what other workers’ compensation benefits you may deserve when you contact your attorney for a free consultation.
