Minnesota Lawyers Helping Injured Workers

Injured While Working At Mayo Clinic?

The Mayo Clinic Health System is one of the largest health care groups in Minnesota. With more than 30,000 workers at the Mayo Clinic’s Rochester facility alone, there are ample opportunities for workplace injuries to occur. If you are a Mayo health care worker who suffered an injury on the job, you might feel worried about trying to file a workers’ compensation claim with such a powerful employer.

You should know that Midwest Disability, P.A., has your back. Our reputable team of workers’ compensation attorneys regularly takes on powerful health care companies and their insurance providers to recover workers’ comp benefits for nurses, doctors, administrative staff, researchers and other health care employees. From our offices in Coon Rapids, we help injured workers no matter where they are located in Minnesota and no matter where they work. We will help you with all aspects of your claim.

We Handle Workers’ Compensation Claims For Mayo Clinic Employees

After a workplace injury or illness, you are likely wondering, If I am hurt as an employee at Mayo Clinic and Hospital, what are my rights? You have the same rights as anyone who qualifies for workers’ compensation, which is to say that you have the right to recover benefits, such as payment of medical bills, temporary or permanent wage benefits, rehabilitative and death benefits, in the event of a loved one’s death. Our skilled lawyers assist every type of Mayo Hospital health care employees, from RNs, CNAs and physicians’ assistants to drivers, aides and cleaning staff. If you work at any of the Mayo Rochester buildings and campuses — including Mayo Clinic, Methodist Campus, Saint Mary’s Campus, Mayo Hospital and the Gonda Building — or at any other Mayo medical facility in Minnesota, we can help you.

If you are an injured health care worker or employee of Mayo, we will handle every detail of your claim for benefits. You can count on us to inform you of your rights as a worker, help you file a claim and advise you what to do if the insurance company refuses to pay your benefits or delays your payments or claim decision.

What You Should Know As An Injured Mayo Worker

The workers’ compensation system can feel intimidating, and the law is very complex. It is natural to have questions for which you need answers. To get you started, we have answered a few of our prospective clients’ most frequently asked questions.

What do I do if I am injured on the job at Mayo Clinic?

If you have an injury while working at Mayo Clinic, Mayo Hospital or Mayo Clinic Health Systems, follow these steps:

    1. Seek medical attention, even if you feel fine and do not have any visible injuries. This establishes a record of the accident or illness. Go to the emergency room, go to urgent care or make a formal appointment with a doctor – do not simply ask a colleague to “take a look at it.”
    2. Report your injury to your supervisor.
    3. During your appointment intake process, be sure to state that the appointment is related to a work-related injury or illness.
    4. File a work comp claim with your employer. Your employer will then submit the claim to their insurance provider.
    5. Most importantly, speak with a capable workers’ compensation lawyer to learn about your options and rights to benefits.

Do I need to file a workers’ comp claim against Mayo Clinic if I am injured?

When you file a workers’ compensation injury claim, you are not filing it directly against Mayo Clinic. You are filing it with their insurance carrier. Most employers carry workers’ compensation insurance in case an employee gets hurt. It is nothing personal – it is necessary to pay for your injury-related damages.

Do I need to sue Mayo Clinic Health Systems for my work injury?

No. Workers’ comp law does not involve suing anyone or filing a lawsuit. It involves filing paperwork, so you can receive benefits for your hospital bills, medical care and a portion of your lost wages. The paperwork can be confusing, and your claim may be denied if the documents aren’t completed correctly or completely. This is why we urge you to contact us for assistance.

Because the individuals and businesses of Rochester are often intertwined with Mayo, many local workers are hesitant to reach out to a law firm in Rochester. With us, you do not have to worry. We are committed 100% to helping health care workers, not a corporation like Mayo Clinic Health System.
