Workers’ compensation claims in Minnesota can be extremely frustrating and confusing. Insurance companies employ hundreds of attorneys and claims adjusters who handle these cases every day, and they are not always looking out for your best interests.
Many times the injured employee is left alone to navigate this difficult system. It is not uncommon for an injured worker to get lost in a procedural maze of red tape and dead ends. The result is that many people with legitimate claims are denied benefits simply because they don’t know the rules.
Employees suffering from work injuries often hire our firm even before a dispute arises. This allows us to monitor the case and provide free legal advice. We do not charge a fee unless there has been a dispute on your claim. Once a dispute arises we don’t collect a fee unless we obtain a favorable result for you.
It is against the law to fire someone in Minnesota for filing a workers’ compensation claim. However, we sometimes encounter employers or managers who either don’t understand the law or choose not to obey it. The attorneys at Heimerl & Lammers will monitor your case if you have a work related injury, and we will do our best to protect your rights and your job.
Benjamin Heimerl heads up the firm’s workers’ compensation division, devoting the majority of his practice to helping Minnesotans who have been hurt on the job. Attorney Michael Lammers also devotes a large amount of his practice to litigating workers’ compensation matters.
Together, the attorneys Heimerl and Lammers work to protect the rights of injured Minnesotans every day.
