Short-Term Disability

Short-Term Disability Lawyer Minnesota

Short-term disability is also called “temporary disability” because it is to provide a person with temporary medical and financial assistance after being injured on the job. This benefit is provided with the anticipation that the injured worker will return to work after they have recovered to perform the same job duties as before, different duties, or work in a different field.

If you have been injured on the job and you need to apply for short-term disability benefits under workers’ compensation or you have been denied short-term disability benefits, it is important to seek the help of a Minnesota workers’ comp attorney who can advocate for you and simplify the process for you. Your attorney will also ensure that all of the paperwork is filled out correctly, as well as submitted within the very strict deadlines.

Helping You File Your Short-Term Disability Claim

There are a number of reasons why claims are denied. Perhaps the application didn’t have a properly documented work history with it or the medical records were missing important information. Ensuring that all of the necessary information is included is why it is important to employ the services of an experienced work comp attorney. All of the proper documentation can be provided from the very start and the paperwork filled out properly. If the claim is still denied, then an appeal can be filed.

It is not unusual for a claim to be denied at first, even if a lot of information is provided. The insurance company may find that there is something else that they want to know. If that is the case, then your attorney can ensure that the information they want is provided so that the claim can be approved.

Experienced Short-Term Disability Litigators

If needed, legal action can be taken against the insurance company if they continue to deny the claim after everything they have asked for has been provided. There have been cases where claims have been erroneously denied or they have been denied in bad faith. Your Minnesota work comp attorney will quickly take legal action in order to secure the compensation that you need so you can pay your bills and receive the medical care that you need.

What Our Client's are Saying:

  • When I was injured at work and the insurance company denied my claim, I didn’t know what I was going to do. I had medical bills mounting, no income, and three children to take care of. Josh helped me understand the process, how long it would take, and in the end, he got all my medical bills paid and got me paid for my injury. In one of the worst times in my life, it helped to able to count on an attorney who understands the law and who was on my side every step of the way.

  • I got injured when a piece of sheet rock fell on my back. The insurance company doctor said my herniated disc was age related and not because of what fell on my back. The attorneys at Arechigo & Stokka, got me paid until we had to go to court, and in the end got all my bills paid and more. I cannot thank them enough.

  • My car crash was one of the worst things that ever happened to me. The insurance company wanted me to settle my case right away without speaking to an attorney. Friends told me I didn’t need an attorney. After months of trying to do things on my own, I knew I need to obtain the advice of an attorney. I am so glad I did. Josh and John helped me get all my bills paid and get compensated for all I went through with my injury.

  • John represented me so well during my case. Being from a private firm made a difference, he was able to timely respond to my questions throughout and was always available any time day or night. John was always very well prepared and hard working. I highly recommend his assistance as a defense attorney

  • John was very helpful throughout the whole process, kept me up to date and informed on all aspects of the case and we achieved the desired successful result.

  • John and I have worked as opposing counsel in the past and I have observed his work in court many times. John is a highly skilled trial lawyer and I endorse him.
