Mark J. Fellman
Representing Workers for Minnesota Workers' Compensation Claims
Being hurt on the job can have devastating consequences for you and your family. In addition to the pain of the injury, the financial stress of paying for doctor and hospital bills, medical devices, nursing care, rehabilitation costs, and other expenses can be overwhelming. At the same time, lost wages are cutting into your family's budget. Contact me for help.
Legitimate Workers' Comp Benefits Are Often Denied
Far too often, legitimate Workers' Compensation claims are denied. Your workplace injury claim may have been denied because no one witnessed your accident. You may have missed the deadline for notifying your employer that you were injured. Or, your claim may involve a preexisting injury that your work aggravated.
For example, you may have a history of non-work related back problems, so your company's Workers' Comp insurance company denied your claim when you strained your back on the job. Another common situation is when you have developed a repetitive stress injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, that you believe was caused by your work. The insurance company, however, claims that carpal tunnel is related to things you do at home.
Even when you know you are right, it can be hard to prove that an on-the-job injury is the real source of your problem. It can seem like you are fighting powerful insurance companies and stuck in a complex legal system. You need help.
