Helping People Get The Benefits They Deserve
At the law firm of James MIchael Gallagher, Attorney at Law, we focus our practice on helping people who have suffered an on-the-job injury navigate the workers’ compensation system. We also help people who are unable to work due to a disability with Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. As a former workers’ comp judge, our lawyer understands the concerns of our clients, helping them to get the medical care and benefits they need following a workplace accident or disability diagnosis.
Protecting Your Interests
When a workplace accident happens, many people are unsure of what steps to take next, especially if they believe that they are at least partially to blame for the accident. The good news is the Minnesota workers’ compensation system is designed to remove blame from the equation. If you were injured at work, regardless of the circumstances, you should be eligible to collect workers’ compensation. However, that does not mean that all valid claims receive automatic approval. Claims are denied all the time, which is why having legal counsel on your side is important.
If you are unable to work because of an injury, or suffer from serious physical or mental health issues, you may be eligible to collect Social Security Disability. Our attorney can let you know whether you are likely to qualify and can help guide you through this process every step of the way.
