How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

The Minnesota Workers' Compensation Act was enacted to ensure that injured workers would be provided with medical care for work-related injuries and illnesses and with financial compensation equal to a percentage of lost wages. In theory, it is supposed to be easy for an injured worker to obtain these benefits. In reality, the system is more complicated than that.

Our Goal: To Get You Every Benefit You Are Entitled To As Fast As Possible

At Midwest Disability, our Minneapolis workers' compensation attorneys have more than 50 years of combined experience helping people throughout Minnesota. We know the law. We work hard to simplify the workers' compensation claims process. Our goal is to get you every benefit you are entitled to under the law and to do so as fast as possible. Along the way, you can count on us to keep you informed, to explain your rights and options in plain language and to be accessible and responsive to your needs. Guaranteed.

Workers' Compensation Benefits

If you were injured in the course of your employment, the workers' compensation benefits you are entitled to receive may include:
Medical Benefits
Wage Loss Benefits
Permanent Partial Disability Benefits

If you are the spouse or dependent of someone who died because of a job-related accident or illness, you may be entitled to death benefits.

Stephen Quanrud

Midwest Disability

Originally from North Dakota, I moved to the Twin Cities to attend college. After graduating and prior to law school I worked and lived in Shanghai, China where I taught a variety of subjects at the local international schools. In addition to my primary practice areas, I have a strong background in Employment Law, Employee Benefits, Health Law, and Insurance. Because my clients rarely have just one legal issue, it is important to be well-versed in these closely-related fields. In my spare time I enjoy archery, travel, and sporting events.
