Cost Of Living Decrease of 1.14% Beginning October 1, 2010


If you are reading this article you are one of tens of thousands of Minnesota Workers Compensation victims who have had there benefits reduced at a time when they can least afford it. Is there any remedy to this reduction? Not directly, but many of you who have contacted my office have been educated about benefits you NEVER knew you were entitled to receive under Minnesota law. Workers' compensation benefits are NOT welfare. They are a benefit that YOU pay for indirectly out of your salary and with every day of labor you provide. Do not be afraid to talk with a workers compensation attorney; preferably one who specializes in work comp and disability claims. Take the opportunity of this decrease to educate yourself and your family of your rights to retraining, second medical opinions, skill enhancements and even additional wage loss benefits that may have been stopped years ago. That's right, benefits that have been stopped can in many circumstances be restarted after losing a job or having an aggravation of your injury. At Atkinson Law Office and Minnesota Disability our staff has over 50 years experience handling workers compensation claims. There is no cost to speak with an attorney 7 days a week. 651-414-0678 or visit our web site www.mndisability.com
