Amputation And Loss Of Use

Minnesota Work Injury Attorney

A serious limb injury that requires a limb to be amputated or for it to be rendered useless is devastating. Everything changes from how everyday activities are carried out to whether or not the injured can return to their field of work. When the injury happens on the job, the game changes in that workers’ compensation may be available to provide wage replacement and medical benefits, as well as the opportunity to train in a different field of work.

If you have been injured on the job, you may be able to file a workers’ comp claim. If you already have and been denied, you can fight the denial. With the help of an experienced St. Paul workers’ comp attorney, you can get the results that you need to recover and move the right direction in your life.

Helping You Build A Strong Claim

An experienced attorney can build a strong claim for you based on the facts. What happened, why it happened, medical records, and the prognosis are some of the things that are used to build your claim. Even with a strong claim, it is possible for the claim to be denied. Many initial claims are not approved for a number of reasons. The good news is that they are usually approved the second time. If your claim isn’t approved the second time, then Josh Borken will take your case as far as it needs to go.

Answers That Help You Make The Right Decisions

You will have some very important decisions to make when faced with workers’ compensation. For instance, you may be out of work for a long time, so that means that it may be wise to file for total disability so that benefits can continue indefinitely. The alternative is benefits that will run out and they could possibly run out before you are ready to return to work.

You must also decide if you want weekly benefits or a lump sum. There are pros and cons to each of these that an experienced St. Paul workers’ comp attorney can advise you on. While your attorney serves as your advocate, you are the one who calls the shots.
