Proven Workers’ Comp Lawyers
The Osterbauer Law Firm are Proven Workers’ Comp Lawyers that assists injured workers throughout Minnesota. We aid clients in resolving legal issues that arise between the employee and the employer’s insurance company. In a free consultation, we can explain steps to take when you are injured on the job, including seeing a doctor as soon as possible.
We help determine all workers’ comp benefits you are entitled to, as well as related benefits such as union benefits, unemployment insurance, and Social Security Disability as an injured worker.Our lawyers take the time to explain the workers’ compensation process from filing the initial claim to appealing a denial of benefits to the Minnesota Workers’ Compensation Court of Appeals.
Denial of Minnesota Workers’ Compensation Claims
If your insurance company denies the claim, disputes are heard before the Minnesota Workers’ Compensation Court of Appeals. After listening to the facts off the case, the WCCA will issue a decision. Either the injured worker or the insurance company may appeal the decision.
Many people who try to handle their own workman’s’ comp cases find the process daunting and difficult. You are better off hiring an attorney who focuses on occupational injury claims. We strive to resolve your case as quickly as possible, while ensuring you receive all the benefits you are entitled to.
If we secure benefits in your work injury claim, our fee will be decided by a judge and be deducted directly from the compensation. If we are unsuccessful in obtaining benefits, you owe us nothing.
