Help For Injured Industrial Workers
People who work in manufacturing plants, mines on the Iron Range and warehouses throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin often have risky work conditions. The physical challenges of industrial work alone often result in blunt trauma injuries, repetitive stress and overexertion. Suffering from electric shocks, falls from heights and other work-related injuries in industrial settings typically require extensive medical care. Workers with serious and catastrophic injuries often miss time from work and struggle to get the rehabilitation therapies they need to recover a new sense of normal.

When Workers’ Compensation Insurers Put Up Roadblocks
You may do everything right and still have everything go wrong with your workers’ compensation claim. You may have told your employer and started the workers’ compensation claims process and have found that you have to struggle to get your rightful benefits underway. Serious injuries mean higher medical costs, so don’t be surprised when an insurance company tries to keep you from receiving all the benefits you are eligible for. The insurer’s goal is to pay out as little as it can get away with. You need a workers’ compensation attorney on your side of the equation.
Many law firms say they can help people with workers’ compensation claims, but how many of those are distracted by multiple other legal practice areas? At The Law Office of Gretchen Hall in St. Paul, our law practice focuses exclusively on workers’ compensation and injury law. With more than 20 years of experience, our lawyer’s background in insurance defense is a valuable asset to our clients who have been injured in industrial settings and other workplaces. We are here to help ensure that you, an injured worker, will be properly compensated for medical bills and lost wage replacement while recovering from your injuries.
Examples Of Industrial Workplace Injuries
Our perseverance supports workers employed in a variety of industrial accidents, including:
- Warehouse injuries: Forklift accidents, loading dock injuries, injuries caused by falling objects and other mishaps in storage facilities are all too common in industrial settings.
- Falls from height: Falls are a leading cause of injury for workers who rely on lifts, ladders and scaffolding to perform their jobs. Injuries from a fall can be severe and even catastrophic, in the case of a spinal cord injury or a traumatic brain injury.
- Manufacturing and assembly line injuries: Factory work can involve both repetitive motions and strenuous physical work. Injuries on the assembly line, including strains, amputations and overexertion can require extensive medical care and rehabilitation.
- Mining accidents: The mining industry has been the context of many work-related injuries. For this reason, Gretchen Hall regularly travels to northern Minnesota, including the Iron Range, to provide legal counsel for miners who encounter difficulties recovering all benefits they are eligible for after suffering injuries on the job.
