Worker injury scene

Workers’ Compensation

Our extensive experience in workers’ compensation has taught us that injured workers want mainly two things—to get better and to get back to work. If you’ve been injured at work, knowing how to take the first step can be the biggest challenge. There is a complex set of laws and insurance rules to protect injured workers. This doesn’t mean you’ll automatically be informed of, or given, the compensation you are owed. In addition to getting paid for missed time from work, you’re also owed compensation for wage loss because of work restrictions. Depending on your long-term prognosis, you may be eligible for retraining or other education.

Don’t make the mistake of settling for less than you deserve. Or worse yet, missing your opportunity to file a claim. Workers’ compensation law protects anyone who is injured while at work. Our team’s deep experience in workers’ compensation ensures you’ll receive the compensation you deserve

Been hurt at work and don’t know where to begin? Start with us today.

We have deep experience working with employees who were injured in all types of jobs throughout the state of Minnesota. Regardless of what type of workers’ compensation benefits you may be eligible for, time is not on your side as there are tight deadlines to file your claim. We’ll pick up your claim regardless of where you are in the process and ensure that you file for, and receive, all the compensation you are entitled to.

If your workers’ compensation claim was denied.

We understand. Having a work comp claim denied or delayed can be extremely frustrating. But do not give up hope. Valid claims are denied on a regular basis, and we have experience appealing those claims and winning. Do not accept a denial from the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Company or avoid filing a claim because your employer advised against it.

Every case is unique. And we are uniquely qualified for every case.

There’s a lot of misinformation floating around about workers’ compensation. Even a co-worker at your very same place of employment can have wrong information about what types of compensation are available or when claims need to be filed. The only way to ensure your rights are protected—and that you’re getting the compensation you deserve—is to work with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer who will conduct an independent review of your case and ensure you are being treated fairly.

No upfront fees. We only get paid if you win.

Many injured workers worry about how they will pay for a lawyer, especially when they have missed time from work. There are zero upfront costs to work with the work comp lawyers at Schroeder & Mandel. We will take your case. We will fight for you. And we will not get paid until we successfully secure a settlement on your behalf. If we don’t win, you don’t pay. There’s nothing to lose but the worry and anxiety over your work injury.

What Chiropracters should know

If an employee is eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, they can select a chiropractor as their “primary health care provider.” We often hear questions on what treatments work comp law covers.
