We Can Help After A Denied Workers' Comp Claim

Employers in Minnesota and western Wisconsin are required to comply with their respective state's workers' compensation laws. Some employers turn to outside insurance companies, while others have their own self-insurance plans. Workers' comp is intended to cover lost wages and medical expenses related to physical injuries, mental health conditions and occupational illnesses that are work-related.

Unfortunately, businesses and insurance providers often care more about their own bottom line than helping people recover to the maximum extent possible. For that reason, many initial claims are denied in the workers' comp system. In other situations, there is a business incentive for insurance companies to short-change a victim or stop paying benefits as early as possibly, often to the detriment of an injury victim who has not reached maximum medical improvement.

A Background In Insurance Defense — Beneficial Insight To Fight Denials

The Law Office of Gretchen Hall is a premier workers' comp law firm based in Saint Paul, serving all of Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Our founding lawyer gained valuable experience in the insurance defense industry prior to deciding to help injured workers get the respect and compensation they deserve from the workers' comp system. When you work with attorney Gretchen Hall, you will benefit from teaming up with an attorney with 20 years of experience and strong insight into how the insurance industry works.

  • Denied workers' compensation claims: A large number of valid claims are denied from the outset. We know the strategies used to deny claims and stand strong to counter those tactics.
  • Premature discontinuance of benefits: Some workers get benefits early on, but then they receive a notice of intent to discontinue benefits (commonly referred to as a NOID letter). This means the insurance provider plans to stop paying wage replacement benefits. We will evaluate your unique circumstances — we know how to challenge the insurance carrier's attempts to cut off workers early. However, you must act quickly as the deadline to object to a NOID is limited.
  • Refusal to pay medical expenses: Medical treatment, surgery or chiropractic care may be necessary for your well-being, and workers' comp is supposed to provide medical benefits for work-related conditions. Valid expenses may include medical bills, physical therapy and vocational training if your injuries prohibit you from returning to your former role. We will explain the full scope of benefits and can fight the insurance companies when they are treating you unfairly.

The insurance companies want you to return to work as soon as possible, but are not always willing to wait until you are physically capable. Denying or terminating benefits saves them money — at your expense. Cutting off benefits or denying a claim often tempts injury victims to give up and return to work when they are still suffering. If you are facing resistance or the outright denial of your claim, you deserve to understand your rights. We are committed to open communication with our clients and providing aggressive advocacy to make things right.
