Attorneys Dedicated To Protecting Injured Workers In Minnesota
Getting hurt on the job can turn your world upside down and make the future feel very uncertain. How will you pay your medical bills? How will you support your family? What if you can never return to your own job? These are the very problems that the Minnesota workers’ compensation system was designed to solve, but injured workers often find that benefits are not nearly as easy to obtain as they should be. That’s why they seek help from an experienced workers’ comp attorney
At Beedem Law, we recognize how overwhelming a workplace injury can be, and our attorneys are dedicated to assisting you during this challenging time. They will help you determine all legal opportunities and pursue the payment that you deserve. As one of the premier disability law firms in the state, we have a strong track record of helping clients find successful resolutions to their workers’ comp claim disputes.
Here’s Why You Need A 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
These are just some of the many benefits offered in the Minnesota workers’ comp system. However, the law does not guarantee that the insurer will pay those benefits, or even tell you what they are. Insurers and even your employer have a conflict of interest when it comes to covering your claim because it means less money in their pocket. A workers’ compensation attorney knows the law and works only on your behalf.
Don’t Overlook An Important Warning Sign About Your Benefits
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. As we often tell potential clients who have been scheduled for an IME: You might not hire us, but you better hire someone.
