I am denied Minnesota workers compensation benefits, what can I do?

Denied Workers Compensation Benefits

If you have been denied Minnesota workers’ compensation benefits than it is important to talk with a workers compensation attorney. An attorney can walk through with you the steps that can be taken to get you workers’ compensation benefits. The next steps will depend on the denial, the type benefits requested and the benefits that have been paid.

There is no cost to meet with our office to discuss your workers’ compensation case. We do not charge a fee unless you retain our office and we are able to recover benefits on your behalf. This means if you retain our office and during the life of your claim we do not recover any disputed or new benefits, you will not owe us anything. This means that we will monitor your case and make sure to advise you on important issues.

Minnesota workers’ compensation attorney fees are handled on a contingency basis. No fee is owed unless we are able to recover additional workers’ compensation benefits or a settlement. Before October 1, 2013, attorney fees would be paid on a contingency basis of 25% of the first $4,000 and 20% thereafter. After October 1, 2013 dates injuries, the law changed to 20% of workers’ compensation. In the case that there is no money paid directly to you, whether it be wage loss, permanency or a settlement, and in a situation where we recover medical or rehabilitation benefits on your behalf, we are allowed to have the insurance company pay our hourly fees.
