Minnesota workers' compensation laws were designed to allow swift payment of wage loss and medical benefits to injured workers to enable a safe and timely return to work. Unfortunately, insurance companies handling workers' compensation claims do not always play by the rules and delay in making wage loss payments and approving medical care or simply deny benefits you are entitled to under the law. Without a doubt, this causes stress and chaos to the injured workers and often times leaves them feeling utterly hopeless.
Attorney Andrea B. Niesen will guide you through this process and ensure that your best interests are aggressively represented in securing the work comp benefits you are entitled to under the law. The Klampe Law Firm has assisted thousands of injured workers throughout Minnesota who have placed their trust in us.
