When choosing a workers compensation attorney it is extremely important that you chose one that has at least 10 years of experience LIMITED to work comp! You may ask yourself why is it important, perhaps a lawyer with only a few years is "hungry" and will be willing to dedicate more time to my case. Hogwash. A lawyer who handles car accidents, dog bites, and general personal injury simply doesn't have time to keep up with the fast changing workers compensation laws. Every year the Minnesota Legislature and the Department of Labor make changes to the laws that affecting your benefits. Your date of injury, however determines which benefits you get. Many of my younger colleagues may try hard, but they may miss important benefits that only an experienced work comp attorney has previously litigated for decades.
There is no retainer required when hiring a workers compensation lawyer and there is NEVER a fee unless we obtain a recovery on your behalf. Even then, our attorney fees are paid directly by the insurance company. Call us and let our office show you how we can help you today! Thomas Atkinson 651-414-0678 www.mndisability.com
