Minnesota Long-Term Disability Litigation Attorneys
Most employers are required to hold workers’ compensation insurance to help cover medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses for workers who are injured on the job. Sadly, the insurance companies that provide this coverage often fail to provide workers’ with compensation when they should and as a result, injured workers are left to face their injuries and injury-related expenses alone.

What is a bad faith lawsuit?
Bad faith lawsuits come in many different forms, but the concept is the same: a big insurance company does something wrong, which may entitle you to compensation. In long-term disability cases, an insurance company might act in bad faith if it denies you coverage for your disability without any rational basis for its denial. What counts as a rational basis for denial can be a complicated issue in litigation, so it is important that you have an experienced attorney on your side. We at Robert Wilson & Associates have this experience. We know how to show that an insurance company’s denial lacked a rational basis, and we will get you the recovery you deserve for the insurance company’s bad faith denial of your long-term disability benefits. Please do not hesitate to contact us at (612) 334-3444 for help with any insurance bad-faith issues.
