Not All Work Injuries Are Cut & Dry. Let Our Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Fight For You
Workers’ compensation law is always changing. Because our law firm solely practices this area of law, we are able to stay ahead of the changes.
We are prepared to work hard to overcome denials or cutoffs and get benefits, whether we are representing nurses who have been exposed to infectious diseases like Covid-19 while working at hospitals, teachers who have caught Coronavirus or other illnesses while educating Minnesota children, police and first responders who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from events seen in the line of duty, meatpacking plant or factory workers hurt by workplace machinery, restaurant workers diagnosed with repetitive stress injuries, or anyone else who works hard and has been hurt on the job.
Sometimes it can seem as though employers and workers’ compensation insurance companies default to denials, especially when they think that something is unclear. Often these are not cut and dried situations of an accident taking place at work and causing an obvious injury. Yes, there are certainly many cases when a forklift hurts someone or a hand is caught in a piece of machinery, but there are also cases where an employee gets sick and the question may come up: “Can you prove you got sick at work?” Similarly, repetitive motion injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome in wrists, knees, shoulders or elsewhere may be denied on the basis that the employer or insurance company does not believe it was caused by work.
Having decades of experience on our side means we know how to push back in even the most challenging cases to see that injured employees are not left with huge medical bills and other costs because of on-the-job injuries.
