SOCIAL SECURITY AND MINNESOTA WORKERS

Compensation Laws provide benefits for employees injured in a workplace accident, regardless of whether the injury was caused by negligence. Filing a MN Workers’ Comp claim involves dealing with an insurance company and can be a long process. You may find your claim delayed, denied or disputed in order to avoid paying all benefits even when you deserve them. Brink Lawyers can assist you in the process by correctly filing the Workers’ Compensation claim. We will negotiate and litigate your dispute during the entire process on your behalf.

Like a work-related accident, other illness or injury can come out of the blue. Stroke. Heart attack. Head injury. Debilitating chronic pain. No one wants to lose the ability to perform a job they love or give up the employment benefits they've come to depend on. At BRINK LAWYERS, we understand that you wouldn't be seeking Social Security benefits if you had better options. We're all only one illness or accident away from being unable to work. But like Minnesota Workers Compensation, filing a claim for Social Security Disability can be bewildering and frustrating. The process takes time, and the rules often make little sense. We've helped hundreds of people just like you who, regardless of fault, are simply unable to return to full-time employment. We'll walk you through the process of filing for Social Security Disability benefits and stay with you every step of the way. We do not charge an up-front fee, and your initial consultation with us is always at no charge to you. 


Our experience in Minnesota Worker's Compensation and Social Security Disability include:

  • Repetitive Stress Disorder

  • Carpal Tunnel

  • Electrocution

  • Burns

  • Toxic Exposure

  • Permanent Disability

  • Chronic Pain

  • Stroke and Heart Attack

  • Joint Failure

  • Dementia

  • Serious Chronic Illness

  • Blindness

  • Chronic Mental Illness

  • Cancer

 

DISPUTES AND LITIGATION

It has been said that "trouble will find you, you don't have to look." Unfortunately, life isn't always smooth. A new neighbor disagrees on a boundary. Insurance companies act unfairly. Previously solid companies suddenly breach contracts. Agencies issue incorrect decisions. Even best friends sometimes find themselves splitting up successful businesses.

Whatever the issue, at BRINK LAWYERS, we've handled nearly every type of dispute. We've seen pretty much everything, from multi-million dollar contract disputes to five-acre boundary fights. We've been down the various roads – enforcing contracts, challenging agencies, battling with insurance companies, dealing with neighbors, protecting your business, or dividing up assets. Whether it involves bringing or defending a suit, pursuing arbitration, guiding a client through mediation, or just negotiating the best deal, we can help.

 

The most common disputes that come to us involve: 

  • Home, auto or business insurance

  • Business disagreements

  • Zoning or ordinance issues

  • Dividing assets among owners
