Why Do I Need a Minneapolis Workers’ Compensation Lawyer?
Workers’ Compensation insurers are good at two things: collecting premiums and denying claims as soon as possible.
The workers’ compensation system in Minnesota is very good. The law allows an injured worker the opportunity to make a claim for:
- WAGE LOSS if you cannot work
- Wage loss if you can only work PART TIME or for lesser pay
- MEDICAL EXPENSES
- OUT-OF-POCKET expenses
- Job placement
- Attorney’s fees
- PERMANENT INJURY
- Many, many other benefits
However, It does not guarantee that the insurer will pay those benefits, or even tell you what they are.
If your workers’ compensation carrier is paying all your bills, paying your wage loss, and paying your out-of-pocket expenses, maybe you don’t need an attorney.
But, if they are not, or you do not know, the best way to protect yourself and your rights is to get help.
And, if they have set you up for an examination with their doctor – they call it an “Independent Medical Exam” – you can bet they are about to cut off some of your benefits!
I tell potential clients who have been scheduled for an IME, you might not hire me, but you better hire someone!
