Should I speak to a workers’ compensation attorney after my work injury?

Workers Compenation is a specialized area that requires someone with knowledge of how the law works and how it applies to your case. The law changes yearly and sometimes monthly depending on the ever changing legal landscape. It is important to to know your rights. Be empowered. Be educated. The following are reasons you may want to speak with our office and a Minnesota workers’ compensation lawyer now:

  1. We offer a free no hassle consultation. We will answer all of your questions, provide you information concerning what rights you have under the law, and what responsibilities an employer and insurer have to you, the injured worker – all for free. Why not educate and empower yourself?
  2. To make sure that you are getting the appropriate benefits.  Often times, this can be overlooked as the employer and insurer calculate a certain wage and most injured workers believe that is all they can receive when, in fact, this may not be correct.  A lawyer can help determine whether you are getting what you are owed.
  3. To make sure you are on the right track and receiving medical benefits and treatment.  Sometimes a little advice from someone who has been through it hundreds of times can go a long way.  Our attorneys and staff know the best way to guide injured workers through the system in making sure that they get the appropriate treatment that they need.
  4. To make sure you are getting the appropriate vocational assistance.  Most insurance companies fail to appropriately inform injured workers about their rights under the rehabilitation laws including services through a qualified rehabilitation consultant and even retraining.  A lawyer can help guide you in obtaining a QRC and getting you on the right track for the appropriate rehabilitation benefits

In most circumstances, you first need to speak with a lawyer to go over the facts of your case to determine whether or not you need to retain a lawyer to represent you.
