Robert Wilson quoted in article about Minnesota workers’ comp payments

Attorney Robert Wilson of Robert Wilson & Associates was recently quoted in an article discussing workers’ compensation payments in Minnesota, particularly, the disparity between Minnesota’s payments for the loss of a body part compared to payments in other states. An investigation by Pro Publica and NPR revealed that workers who lose a body part in Minnesota are, on average, compensated far less than workers in other parts of the country. In some instances, disparities reached into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

However, Wilson highlighted the fact that payment for loss of a body part, also known as permanent partial disability, is only one of many different aspects that makes up a state’s workers’ compensation system. He also pointed out that in many other respects, Minnesota was favorable for injured workers.
