When an employee is injured in the course of employment, that person may be entitled to recover benefits against an employer under the Minnesota Workers’ Compensation Act. Among other things, an injured worker may recover lost wages, medical treatment, and various rehabilitation expenses. We work with employers and insurers to defend against these claims.
Our advantage over other firms lies within our ability to combine quality, affordability and accessibility to the client. With these pillars in place, we are confident in our ability to offer any employer the best possible experience when handling a Workers’ Compensation claim.
Quality – The partners at our firm have been nationally recognized for their accomplishments in all stages of the litigation process. While we have extensive trial experience, we also understand that alternative dispute resolution methods may be the most effective way to meet our clients’ goals. To complement our firm’s leadership, our associates have a shared passion for representing employers in Workers’ Compensation matters.
Affordability – A Workers’ Compensation claim may carry on for multiple years. As employers know, longer litigation leads to higher costs. From the outset of any Workers’ Compensation claim, it is our goal to minimize both the length of time we spend litigating the dispute, and the length of time the employee is eligible to receive benefits.
Accessibility – We believe that handling a Workers’ Compensation claim should be a cohesive effort between every party involved. Because of firm’s size, each member of our talented staff has the ability to contribute to the case. We then implement this same team-based culture between our staff and the staff of the employer. With open communication and a shared vision, we are confident that we can achieve the best possible result for any employer.
Our clients range from small business owners to one of the nation’s largest retailers. Because of this diversity, we use a variety of approaches – each tailored to the employer’s specific goals. Rather than adhere to a strict litigation model that might work “for” an employer, our flexible approach enables us to work “with” the employer.
