He also worked as an insurance defense attorney for Walmart before handling cases in private practice. He knows how insurance entities defend workers’ comp claims and what motivates them.
Such experience has allowed Chris to recover benefits for injured workers all throughout southern Minnesota including:
- Loss of wages: You may qualify for partial or total replacement of your income.
- Medical expenses: Workers’ compensation pays for any reasonable and necessary treatment for your injuries, including hospital stays, surgical costs, pain management, physical therapy and associated mileage costs.
