    I would encourage she contact a workers compensation lawyer. Most attorneys offer free consultations. It is impossible to evaluate the case without more information. Good luck.

    In my experience it is not likely they will reduce their settlement. However it is a possible they could do that. Nothing is ever final until it is signed and approved. Any party can increase or decrease their offer.

    If it's related to a physical injury it may be compensable under Minnesota law. I would encourage you contact a lawyer who practices in workers' compensation.

    It sounds as if you have a very serious injury. My best advice would be to consult with an attorney if you have not already done so that is experienced in workers' compensation. It is difficult to assess what a fair or reasonable settlement would be without more facts about your case. For example, due to the limited benefits available in workers' compensation it would be necessary to know what benefits have been paid, what your average weekly wage is, and what your future prognosis is...

    You have a few options. First, you could contact the help line at the Department of Labor and Industry to see if they can help you get in touch with the insurance company. Their number is 1-800-342-5354. They can attempt to get a hold of the insurance company and see if they are willing to voluntarily pay wage loss and medical benefits. If they are not willing to voluntarily pay, you will need to go to step two. Second, get an attorney. If they deny your wage loss benefits you will need...

    If a business does not take care of their property you can bring a claim for negligence. Minnesota law allows you to seek compensation for past and future medical expenses along with past and future wages. You can also get pain and suffering. I would contact an attorney to assist you in bringing a claim against the business. If I can be of assistance in this matter, please feel free to contact me at jsisk@noacklawoffice.com or www.jerrysisk.com. Good luck.

  8. I slip and fall on icy path of Home Depot , what can I do now?

    I would contact the Home Depot's insurance company to see if they will pick up your claim and pay your bills. If you are unable to get anywhere with them I would look at contacting an attorney. If the path was privately maintained by Home Depot you might have a case for damages. If I can be of assistance, please feel free to contact me at jsisk@noacklawoffice.com or www.jerrysisk.com

  9. Fall at work

    It sounds like you would have a claim for workers' compensation benefits. Parking lots owned or maintained by an employer for its employees are normally considered part of the work premises. It would appear that you were within the time frame deemed reasonable for ingress and egress if you were going to or leaving work. As such you would be entitled to work comp benefits. I would recommend you contact an attorney. If I can be of assistance, please feel free to email me at jsisk@...

    I don't believe you would have a claim for negligence against the employer, but I would recommend you consult a personal injury attorney. Additionally, you may have a claim for workers' compensation benefits. Even if the insurer denied you benefits you may still be entitled to work comp. I would need to know more facts before determining if you have a compensable injury. If I can be of assistance, please feel free to request an initial consultation on my website ( www.siskjere.squarespace.com)....
