People of all ages suffer workplace injuries. When you are unable to work, you are immediately faced with financial challenges. While the insurance company is likely to offer you some benefits if you file a claim, it is likely much less than what your claim is worth. The insurance company has an attorney advocating for their interests, and you should too.
Atkinson Gerber Law Office will represent your interests in a workers’ compensation claim. We are based in St. Paul and serve clients throughout the Twin Cities and the state of Minnesota. Our practice is primarily focused on workers’ compensation claims; however, we also handle Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims.

Few lawyers can say they know firsthand what types of challenges their clients are facing.

Fees in Workers’ Compensation Cases
Many people are worried about contacting a lawyer because of the fear of high legal fees. In Minnesota, there is no risk or initial fee in hiring a workers’ compensation attorney. Attorneys are paid 25 percent of the first $4,000 of benefits recovered, and then 20 percent of any benefits recovered after. This is typically subject to a maximum fee of $13,000. There are provisions in the law that can require some of the attorney’s fees to be paid in part (or entirely) by the insurance company without affecting a person’s benefits. We can help explain if this applies to your case.
