Protecting the Rights of Working People

What injuries are covered by Minnesota workers' compensation? My employer disagrees that my condition is work related. Are there options if workers' compensation will not cover my injuries? Do I receive any compensation if I have a permanent injury? How did you get into Worker's Compensation?


Mark has been protecting the rights of injured workers both in the courtroom and at the legislature for over 30 years. As a former co-chair of the Minnesota Association for Justice workers' compensation committee from 1993 to 2000 and a current active member, he has lobbied against regular attempts by the business community to reduce workers' compensation benefits for Minnesota's injured workers.
