Need a Workers’ Compensation Attorney?

When you get injured at work, the last thing you should have to do is worry about all the legal matters.  Hiring a workers’ compensation attorney is often one of the most important things an injured worker can do.  Here is something to consider before making your decision to hire a workers’ compensation attorney

Hire an Experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Workers’ Compensation attorneys are very specialized and good attorneys have spent years handling this specialized area of law. Not just any lawyer can handle a work comp claim.  If you are comparing workers’ compensation attorneys, be sure to ask them how much of their practice is work comp.  A lot of attorneys will claim to be work comp attorneys, but have very little experience in the area. When researching for a work comp attorney, look for an attorney whose practice or focus is at least 50% workers’ compensation.

Worried about cost? Workers’ Compensation attorneys ONLY receive compensation unless you do. Read More >>

Rosengren, Kohlmeyer & Hagen, Law Office Chtd.

Rosengren, Kohlmeyer & Hagen Law Office Chtd. (Roko Law) has a long history of handling workers’ compensation cases. It is an area of the law that very few firms practice and that is especially true in the state of Minnesota.  While we represent clients from all over Minnesota, we specialize in representing people who live outside the metro area because the location of our main office is located more than 75 miles from the Department of Labor and Industry in St. Paul.

How can this affect you? DOLI allows us to attend many hearings by phone, whereas you normally would need to appear at in person. This is a huge benefit to many of our outstate clients for whom traveling to the twin cities metro area is a significant hardship.

Our firm has handled hundreds of workers’ compensation cases over the years. It is critical that our clients know they do not have the fight this alone. This is a problem that Roko Law is in a unique position to help solve.  Our mantra: “We Solve Problems” is what we do each and every single day; and we do it proudly.
