Welcome to MN Disability's Minnesota Workers Compensation Blog

Minnesota Disability was founded with the sole goal of representing disabled and injured individuals living in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. When Minnesota Disability represents a client, we take charge in preparing all the proper forms, filing the necessary papers, obtaining the medical and vocational evidence needed to support your claim, and aggressively pursue a favorable decision as our only objective. We have decades of experience in handling workers compensation cases from the administrative decision level up to the Minnesota Supreme Court. We also represent individuals who may be qualified to receive disability benefits from the United States Social Security Administration. In many of our Social Security cases, our clients never have to go to the Social Security office.

We are not a general practice law firm; rather, we focus on representing individuals in social security disability and Minnesota workers' compensation matters. By limiting our practice to these two specialties, Minnesota Disability will provide you with an experienced and focused approach to your issues. Minnesota Disability provides better service than general law firms or non-attorney disability groups. We don’t draft a will in the morning and fight traffic tickets in the afternoon. We are licensed attorneys that do one thing: represent injured and disabled individuals. We know disability, and we want to represent you.

Thomas Atkinson

Attorney Thomas Atkinson has over 2 decades of experience in handling workers' compensation disability matters. Tom brings a unique experience to his practice in previously representing employers and insurers in his practice AND having personally fought with these same insurance companies to obtain workers' compensation benefits for himself. This experience transformed his thinking. He understands the fear that comes when bringing a claim against one’s employer as well the frustration in dealing with a system that can appear stacked against the injured worker. Though Tom’s practice is now limited to representing the injured worker, he understands the “tricks” and tactics used by insurers and can use these experiences to your benefit. Tom runs a very efficient practice that allows personal attention to your matter. He is willing to meet with you anywhere in the metro area, or you can meet at his St. Paul location. You may contact Tom at 651-333-3636 or or visit our website at  There is never a fee unless we recover benefits for you.
