For Employees Collecting Worker Compensation at Target

worker compensation at TargetSeeking worker compensation at Target in Minnesota can be stressful.

As of the date of this article, Target is insured through the ACE American Insurance Company.  Medical clinics attached to Target are often called “TARGET CLINIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATES MINNESOTA LLC”.

Unless you are familiar with the worker compensation process, consider taking a few minutes and call this law office to determine if I can serve your needs.

What does worker compensation at Target pay for?

Target employees seeking worker compensation in Minnesota can seek four types of benefits.  This includes:

1.  Wage Loss
2.  Rehabilitation
3.  Disability
4.  Medical.

The average weekly wage in Minnesota is $989.  If you are a part-time employee or do not make as much as the weekly average, do not be alarmed.  The point I am trying to make is wage loss benefits means getting compensated for a percentage of your lost wages during the period you are not able to work or seeking medical attention.

Rehabilitation includes vocational rehab benefits if a Target employee cannot return to the job they had before they were injured.

Also, Minnesota worker compensation at Target can include money due to damage to a body part.  Generally, workers have to experience a work disability longer than three days or have a permanent partial disability to qualify for these types of benefits.

What should a Target employee do if they are injured at work?

A person who gets injured while working at Target should notify their employer immediately.  A person at Target who does not report their injury risks loosing their right to worker compensation benefits.

Types of injuries Target employees may encounter

Statistically speaking, 24% of all worker compensation claims are due to an injury to a worker’s arms or legs.  It is the experience of this law office that the most common type of injury includes a worker’s back.

Employees trying to collect worker compensation at Target will likely experience an injury to more than one body part.

When reviewing the nature of an injury, one of the most problematic areas for a worker trying to advocate on their own behalf is the classification of pain.  I cannot stress this enough – the doctor(s) you select are significant to the process of seeking benefits.

Bring this to every doctor’s visit

During your process of seeking medical attention, always bring the following information to your visit:

  • The name of the insurance company representing Target on the date of your injury,denied worker compensation
  • Target’s contact information (address, phone number, fax number, etc.),
  • Your insurance claim number,
  • A list of the doctors and facilities treating you,
  • A list of your medications, and
  • A list of your medical and treatment concerns.

Denied worker compensation claim at Seagate

If you work at Target and your worker compensation claim is denied, the insurance company must send you a Notice of Insurer’s Primary Liability Determination or (“NOPLD”).  This notice or form looks like this.

Again, the insurance company can deny some or all of your claim.  As referenced above, every element of your claim for worker compensation benefits at Target can fall into one of four categories:

1.  Wage Loss
2.  Rehabilitation
3.  Disability
4.  Medical.

Therefore, if you are trying to collect worker compensation at Target and ANY part of your claim gets denied, contact an attorney for help.
