It is unfortunate that workers in Minnesota that are deserving of full benefits are not awarded the full benefits or they don’t receive their benefits in a timely manner. Although Minnesota’s workers’ comp law is designed to benefit the injured worker, insurance companies, and employers can make the process difficult. This is disheartening because injured workers don’t ask to be injured, therefore losing wages.
With the help of an experienced St. Cloud workers’ comp attorney, you can get the compensation that you deserve when you’ve been injured on the job. At the Walz Law Office, you receive the focus and commitment that you and your case deserve so that you can move on with your life. You also receive the help you need to maximize compensation to a point that it will help you move forward.
Fighting For Your Right To Compensation
There are several ways in which insurance companies and employers take advantage of injured workers. These ways include:
- Denying any type of employer responsibility for the injury that occurred on the clock
- Undervaluing the wages lost by the employee
- Denying payment for legitimate medical treatment
- Pressuring workers to return to work before ready
- Discouraging the employee from obtaining a second opinion
If an employer isn’t carrying the necessary insurance because of exemption or negligence, there are still ways to get the compensation needed. A St. Cloud workers’ comp attorney is going to have the knowledge of these special rules so that you can receive the compensation you deserve for the injuries that you have suffered.
Maximizing Your Workers’ Comp Compensation
When you have been inadequately compensated, your attorney will do several things that include finding out why there is an underpayment, gathering the necessary paperwork about the injury, evaluating all documentation, and then effectively fighting the underpaid claim.
Of course, quickly reporting the injury and seeking medical attention are two things that you can do, but your attorney is your best weapon toward maximizing your workers’ comp claim so that you receive the wage replacement and medical benefits you need to recover as much as possible.
