Minneapolis Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
As big of a city Minneapolis is, every employee faces the possibility of being injured while on the job. Proper workers’ compensation is very important, 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 your job.
All employers provide some sort of injury compensation insurance for their employees 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 workers’ comp benefits, and in other instances, the insurer will simply not inform you what benefits you are entitled to receive.
Whether or not you are compensated for your benefits, it is wise to speak with an experienced work injury lawyer, even if your employer wants to provide you with benefits. Our workers’ compensation lawyers will not only ensure you’ve received fair treatment, but that you’ve been fully compensated for your injury. 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 in Minneapolis have over four decades of combined experience helping our injured clients.
