Should I get a lawyer even if the insurance company is paying all of my benefits?
Workers’ compensation rules and laws in Minnesota are very complicated, and because the laws are constantly changing due to legislative changes, seeking advice from an experienced, aggressive attorney is always a good idea. Again, it costs nothing to hire a lawyer for a workers’ compensation claim. Our lawyers will be paid only a percentage of the benefits the lawyer helps you obtain. If you are already receiving benefits, the lawyer will not begin receiving a percentage of the benefits you are receiving. The lawyer will only receive a percentage of the benefits he or she helps you obtain.
In fact, as one might be able to tell from the questions and answers so far, the manner in which an injured employee gets benefits, the nature of the benefits and how an employee commences a claim to get benefits can be very complicated. Thus, it is always a good idea to seek legal advice from a competent attorney.
