Helping You File A Workers’ Compensation Claim
Because the law is complicated, it is important to work with a lawyer to file a workers’ compensation claim. The success of your claim may depend on a little nuance of the law, and at Noack Law Office, we know the law well.
Knowing the law can mean the difference between winning and losing a case, and between a good result or a bad result. Many of the people who contact Noack Law Office are asking for help because their first attempt at filing a claim was unsuccessful.
Filing workers’ comp claims in Minneapolis can be a time-consuming process, but our attorneys can help ensure your claim has all the information it needs. When individuals contact our firm, the first thing we do is gather as much information as possible. We ask questions about the date of the injury, and we review medical records individuals already have. Although we encourage new clients to bring their medical records to their first meetings, we can certainly move forward without those.
Submitting A Claim Petition
As soon as we’ve reviewed the medical records, we submit a claim petition. We know there may be delays elsewhere in the process, so we work as promptly as possible. Often, if we meet a client in the morning, we submit a claim petition that afternoon.
While we wait for an answer about the petition, we help ensure our clients know what to do as we move forward. After we receive an answer about the claim petition, there may be a deposition, discovery between the defense attorney and our firm, a request for an independent medical exam, and an administrative hearing.
The Benefits Of Working With A Minnesota Attorney After Getting Injured At Work
Many people who are interested in filing a workers’ compensation claim are afraid of hiring a lawyer. There is a misconception that working with an attorney could jeopardize their position with their current employer. In reality, the opposite is true. When injured workers work with lawyers, their employers know that they are receiving legal counsel, which helps ensure they do not mistreat the employee.
