Legal Advocates For Injured Workers In Wisconsin
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 an attorney, 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.
At the Cochrane Law Office, P.A., in Roseville, Minnesota, we are an approachable law firm. You can rest assured that we will return your phone calls and listen to your concerns. Being attentive to your needs, keeping you informed and aggressively pursuing your workers’ comp claim are the best ways to serve you.
Common Work Injuries
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
Wisconsin allows for treatment of psychological injury, including depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The psychological injury does not have to be the result of a physical injury.

- Unlike Minnesota, there is only one type of fee in Wisconsin workers’ comp claims.
- The lawyer receives 20 percent of all indemnity benefits.
- Litigation expenses are negotiable and are sometimes paid by the employers’ workers’ compensation insurer.
