Representing Injured Workers In Minnesota
There are lots of law firms out there today. You can call one and talk to a receptionist and then a legal assistant. You would meet with a lawyer, who would then hand your file to a junior associate, who would then give it to a law clerk for research. There would be multiple hands on your file, and yet not one would promptly return your phone calls.
Located in Roseville, Minnesota, Cochrane Law Office, P.A., focuses on workers’ comp law. We only represent injured workers, not employers. We know the ins and outs of filing a claim, and we can help you.
Were You Injured At Work?
The Cochrane Law Office can help those suffering from a variety of psychological and physical workplace injuries. The injuries may be due to a specific occurrence or repetitive activity. Body parts commonly injured include:
- Hand and wrist
You may receive compensation for a psychological injury if it is secondary to a physical injury or a consequence of a physical injury.
Legal Fees In Minnesota Workers’ Compensation Claims:
- Attorney’s fees on disputed indemnity benefits are on a contingency basis — 25 percent of the first $4,000 and 20 percent of the next $60,000. Attorney’s fees are only owed if we are successful.
- Attorney’s fees on medical and vocational rehabilitation disputes are paid hourly by the insurance company if we are successful. Otherwise, no fees are owed.
