Winning cases for injured workers for more than 20 years
When you are injured or become ill at your workplace or a work-related activity, regardless of whether the injury or illness occurred in connection with your job, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. You are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits even in the absence of your employer’s fault or negligence. The experienced attorneys at Jeffrey M. Ellis in Minneapolis have helped workers get fair compensation for injuries and illnesses sustained in the workplace for more than 20 years. Our attorneys help workers obtain coverage for their workers’ compensation claims, including:
Waiving workers’ compensation
Accepting workers’ compensation limits your rights to other remedies against a negligent employer. A personal injury claim can include compensation for general damages and pain and suffering, whereas a workers’ compensation claim cannot. Attorney Jeffrey M. Ellis is skilled at analyzing whether you should waive your workers’ compensation claim and seek recovery for negligence in civil court, and if you should also pursue a negligent third party.
Appealing workers’ compensation decisions
If your workers’ compensation claim is denied, you have a limited time to appeal the decision. Jeffrey M. Ellis can help you successfully maneuver through the complex bureaucratic process of appealing to the Minnesota workers’ compensation board.
