Denied Workers’ Comp

Denied MN Workers Compensation Benefits

Every year, tens of thousands of injured workers in Minnesota are denied workers’ compensation benefits for reasons that have nothing to do with whether they are actually disabled. To protect your rights, it is important to contact a qualified attorney as soon as possible.

Our work comp lawyers are proud to put our decades of experience to work for your on-the-job injury case. We will work hard to help you keep the benefits you deserve.

Examples of Workers’ Compensation Claim Issues

There are a number of disputes that may arise regarding a workers’ compensation claim. Here are examples of the types of issues our lawyers resolve for our clients:

  • My application for worker’s compensation was denied. This may happen for a number of reasons. Your injury may have been misclassified, or the insurance company may believe that your injury is either pre-existing or not work related. Our lawyers will help you document your claim. Even if you had a pre-existing medical condition, the injury or illness may be covered if it was aggravated on the job.
  • My disability check was delayed or issued for the wrong amount. In some cases, our lawyers can resolve these issues at no cost to you.
  • I received a letter telling me my workers’ compensation benefits will stop. Even if you receive workers’ compensation benefits initially, the insurance carrier can stop paying benefits at any time. If this happens to you, our lawyers will go to work immediately to try to get your benefits reinstated.
  • They are sending me to an independent medical exam. An independent medical exam or IME will be conducted by a doctor who works for the workers’ compensation insurance carrier. For more information about what this means to you, see What is an Independent Medical Exam?
