Representing Minnesota Workplace Accident Victims
No one heads to work thinking “today is the day I’m going to get hurt on the job.” Unfortunately, statistics show that plenty of people will get hurt on the job regardless of their expectations. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), it is estimated that nearly 10 percent of workers in some industries will lose work time due to injury or disability.
Minnesota employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover the medical cost and lost wages of their injured employees. Unfortunately, it is not always easy for injured workers to get the benefits they are entitled to after a work accident. The insurance companies will do everything they can to limit payouts and leave injured workers bearing the burden of a workplace accident.
Why You Need A Lawyer
You are not required to have a lawyer in order to make a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. However, it is in your best interest to do so. A workers’ compensation lawyer will be familiar with the complex workers’ compensation process and ready for the insurance company’s tricks. At Nicolet Law Office, we focus on getting our clients the benefits they need as efficiently as possible.
One Attorney For Multiple Claims
Some workplace accidents provide an opportunity to obtain financial compensation for your pain and suffering in addition to your workers’ compensation benefits. This can be achieved by pursuing a personal injury claim against a negligent third party. For example, you could file a personal injury claim against the company that designed a defective machine or a negligent driver who caused a car accident while you were driving for work. We are experienced with personal injury and workers’ compensation, allowing us to handle all your claims under one roof.
