Losing a limb on the job is life-changing and very painful. It results in surgeries and the need to adapt to the changes that result. Missing a limb can make everyday tasks extremely difficult, let alone working the same job. For many, amputation results in the need to enter into a new field of work that better accommodates the amputation. So if you have lost a limb while performing duties at work, contact an experienced southern Minnesota workers’ compensation lawyer as soon as possible so work can begin on your work comp claim.
Whether you’ve been injured in a construction accident, a work-related car accident, or an accident that involved machinery, you may be able to file a workers’ comp claim that will secure wage replacement, medical and/or vocational benefits for you that will allow you to move forward with your life.
We Work Hard On Your Claim
At Harvey & Carpenter, we work hard on your workers’ comp claim. We gather as much information as possible from what happened and the injury report you made to your employer to your medical records. The stronger your claim, the more likely it will be approved the first time it is submitted. However, insurance companies can sometimes find the smallest detail to challenge the claim with. If they do this, we can appeal the denial.
If you have already been denied, don’t give up. We can structure an appeal that gets the result that you need. Even if a claim isn’t approved upon appeal, it can be taken further. We will stay by your side and advocate for you for as long as it takes.
Giving You The Answers You Deserve
When you have questions for your southern Minnesota workers’ compensation lawyer, you can count on answers. We want to help you make informed decisions. This means giving you advice, advising you of where we are in the process, and even educating you about what is happening so that you understand the steps and the complexities. However, we worry about the technicalities of the process so that you can focus on living your life and not on workers’ comp law or the small details that must be considered when building your claim. We do it for you so you don’t have to deal with any additional stress.
