At Jardine, Logan & O’Brien, P.L.L.P., we have a team of attorneys prepared to handle your workers’ compensation dispute. By concentrating our efforts on representing insurance companies and self-insured employers, our workers’ compensation attorneys provide clients with valuable resources before a claimed injury, throughout the involved proceedings, and into administering long-term benefits for employees.
Since the most important time during a workers’ compensation matter is at the employee’s initial filing of an injury claim and prior to a typical attorney’s involvement, providing up-to-date information to employers about the workers’ compensation laws and the potential ramifications of establishing benefits is crucial. Workers’ compensation is not a fault-based system. Benefits are based upon whether or not an injury “arose out of” employment. Understanding the type of injuries that fall under this unclear terminology is vital for employers managing workers’ compensation benefits. The attorneys at Jardine, Logan & O’Brien, P.L.L.P. recognize the value of and work with employers to help identify the issues that arise with their employee-claimants’ psychological and repetitive injury cases, as well as the importance of distinguishing between permanent and temporary disability and partial and total disability.
With workers’ compensation attorneys licensed in Minnesota and Wisconsin, our lawyers have represented clients at all stages of workers’ compensation proceedings, from the first rounds of interim administrative conferences at the Workers’ Compensation Division, through the formal evidentiary hearings at the Office of Administrative Hearings through the appellate review at the Workers’ Compensation Court of Appeals and at the Minnesota Supreme Court.
