Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
in Minneapolis, MN
No matter what the occupation, every worker faces the possibility of being injured while on the job. Whether the injury is a result of a single traumatic accident or from repetitive stress, you deserve to know your rights. We can deal with the insurance company so you can focus on getting well and back to work.
All employers provide workers’ compensation insurance to pay medical bills and lost wages. Injured workers are also eligible for vocational rehabilitation and a payment for permanent disabilities. Often employers or insurance companies deny these benefits. In other instances, the insurer will simply not inform you what benefits you are entitled to receive.
Whether or not you are denied your benefits, it is wise to speak with an experienced Minneapolis workers’ compensation attorney. Even when your employer wants to provide you benefits, insurance carriers often deny or challenge a workers’ compensation claim. Do not trust insurance companies to do the right thing. We will advise you of your rights, take immediate action and ensure you make a full recovery. The attorneys at Robichaud & Alcántara have over four decades of combined experience helping injured workers.
