Workers’ Compensation Claim Assistance Tailored To You
While no workers’ compensation case or injury is exactly the same, the foundation of our approach remains the same in every case: providing a hands-on personalized approach to counsel and comprehensive knowledge of these issues.
Because we focus exclusively on workers’ compensation cases, we have a deep understanding of the subject, the types of injuries workers suffer and the procedures that you must follow to successfully obtain benefits.
Workers’ Compensation Law Is Technical
If you have been injured and have not already reported it to your employer, you should do so immediately. Workers’ compensation is an insurance system, and the insurance policies contain rules that must be followed in order for your claim to be considered.
You likely have a very short period of time to report your injury. Failure to follow the required procedures can lead to your right to recover workers’ compensation benefits being forfeited.
30 Years Of Workers’ Compensation Experience
At Thill & Freeman, PLLC, our attorney knows that a fair number of these cases may require hearings or appeals. His 30 years of legal experience allows us to handle any workers’ comp/work injury issue, including:
- Back injuries
- Hearing loss
- Construction injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Occupational disease
- Denied workers’ comp claims
This experience also readies us to deal with coordinating benefits and other remedies, including potential third-party liability actions. Regardless of your circumstances, it is important to take action soon after your injury to protect your rights.
In every case, we work exclusively on contingency – we never collect attorney fees unless we help you receive the benefits you need.
Don’t Delay Reporting Your Work Injuries
In Minnesota, every business is required to have protection for workers’ compensation, whether it be through an insurance company or a self-funded program. This includes out-of-state businesses. They should also provide their employees with clear instructions on how to make a claim after an injury. If you have been injured, make certain that you report your injuries as soon as you are able to do so. Delays can result in claims being denied.
Qualified Rehabilitation Consultant (QRC)
Employees have the right to choose the doctor who treats them and their qualified rehabilitation consultant (QRC). There are rules governing changing a doctor or a QRC once selected, so you should talk to your lawyer about your options before agreeing to a doctor or a QRC.
If an insurer has denied your workers’ compensation claim, you may still be able to recover benefits. Depending on the circumstances, we may be able to sue your employer’s insurance company to obtain benefits for you.
