Helping Minnesota’s Injured Workers
Being injured on the job is devastating because it interferes with your livelihood and your physical and mental health. When your ability to work and support your family is interfered with, the stress mounts and can make recovery more difficult.
At the Law Office Of Joshua Borken, we understand what you are going through and the importance of the workers’ compensation benefits you seek. Those benefits can help you pay the bills and receive the needed medical treatment. They can also help you return to work in a different field if it’s impossible for you to return to your old job type.
We help injured workers receive workers’ comp benefits for a variety of jobs, including construction, law enforcement, manufacturing, nursing and health care workers, office and administrative, trucking and utilities, to name a few. We also assist steel workers and union workers.
Fighting A Denied Workers’ Comp Claim
Quite often, legitimate worker’s comp claims are denied or underpaid. The insurance company may say that your claim has been denied because no one at work saw the accident, or you may have missed the deadline for telling your employer of the injury. The insurance company may even try to say that you had a pre-existing injury that was aggravated by your work. These are examples of reasons why you need an experienced attorney in your corner.
For instance, you may have a history of back and neck problems. If you have been injured at work, the insurance company could try and deny your claim based off of your back and neck problem history. Another common issue lies with repetitive stress issues, such as bursitis or carpal tunnel syndrome. You most likely believe that the injury was caused by work, but the insurance company may claim that the injury resulted from a hobby or activities you carry out at home.
Even when you know you are correct, you have to prove that the injury occurred on the job. This may seem overwhelming, but your attorney can help you so that you are not stuck in a complex legal process.
