Understanding herniated discss

Employees in Pennsylvania may benefit from learning more about herniated discs and the risks associated with this injury. This injury may technically be described as spinal disc pathology, while other common terms used to refer to this type of pain include bulging disc or pinched nerve. Among practitioners, there has been some disagreement about how to exactly define this injury. Some of the other related terminology that patients and doctors often use includes disc protrusion, collapsed disc, slipped disc, torn disc and ruptured disc.

What health care benefits does workers' compensation cover?

If a workers' compensation claim is accepted in Minnesota, the injured worker will receive payment for all reasonable medical expenses that are incurred as a result of the workplace injury. The worker may also be reimbursed for medication that is prescribed during the course of medical treatment. Gas mileage that is used to drive to and from medical appointments may also be reimbursed.

Disputed facts in a Minnesota workers' compensation case

An individual who is injured while working may be concerned with the requirements for filing a claim and receiving benefits. Minnesota statutes set forth the requirements of workers' compensation in cases of death or personal injury occurring in the course of employment, and the burden of proof in showing that an incident was work related is assigned to the employee. However, a dispute may arise if an employer believes that an employee's injury is self-inflicted or that it has resulted because of an employee's intoxication.
