Long-Term Disability

Long-Term Disability Lawyer Minnesota

When a worker has been seriously injured on the job, worker’s comp is a set of benefits that the worker can use to help them pay for their living expenses and provide them with medical coverage during their recovery. However, there are times when an injured worker needs benefits for the long-term because of the nature of their illness keeping them from returning to work in any capacity or at a limited capacity.

If you have been injured at work, it is important that you speak with a Minnesota workers’ comp attorney as soon as possible so that you can file your claim. If you have already filed your claim and it has been denied, then you can file an appeal so that you can receive your long-term disability benefits.

Help With Your Long-Term Disability Claim

The goal is for your long-term disability claim to be approved as soon as possible. In order for this to occur, every form has to be filled out completely and correctly. There is also a specific and very strict timeline in which the forms have to be submitted. Your attorney will ensure accuracy and timeliness of the forms and the accompanying documentation.

Even when a claim is denied, like 75 percent of them are, it is usually due to the insurance company wanting more information about the injury. Most of the claims that are denied are approved after all of the requested information is provided in the appeals process.

To reduce the probability of a denial, your attorney will determine eligibility, complete and file all of the documentation within the deadlines, ensure the claim is accurate and complete, and make sure that work and medical history is correct.

Securing A Better Future For You

When you are permanently disabled because of a work injury, it is very important that we are able to help you secure the long-term disability benefits that you need. That way you can receive the wage replacement and medical care that you need to establish the best possible quality of life after the injury. You may be totally disabled or you may be able to work in a limited capacity and receive partial benefits to supplement any income that you may make working in a limited position. There are different long-term disability options that you may be entitled to and your Minnesota workers’ compensation lawyer will be able to review these with you so you know what to expect.

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.
