Applications For Workers’ Compensation Benefits
If you have been injured at work, and you have not done so already, you must inform your employer. You must fill out the first report of injury. There are deadlines by which this step must be completed, so you must act quickly. Our experienced attorneys can help you with applying for workers’ compensation benefits, making certain that all deadlines are met.
Denied Workers’ Compensation Claims
In theory, workers’ comp benefits should be easy to obtain. In reality, the system is extremely complex. People are denied the benefits they need on a daily basis for any number of reasons. It is important to understand that denial of benefits is not the end of the road. Our Minneapolis attorneys have a successful track record of appealing denied claims.
Workers’ Compensation Settlements
People often wonder when they will get their workers’ comp settlement. In reality, settlement is not the right word. Very rarely is there a settlement, unless there is some type of dispute. There may be a lump-sum payment of benefits. More often than not though, benefits are issued over a certain period of time. We will explain the benefits you are entitled to.
Three important details you should know about workers’ compensation attorney fees include:
- Attorney fees are regulated by law in these cases, meaning all law firms charge essentially the same fees, whether they just opened their doors or they have decades of experience, like we do.
- All cases are taken on contingency, meaning there are no fees until benefits are recovered.
- Consultations are free.
