Keep in mind that bigger doesn’t always mean better. You’ll recognize some of the “biggest” insurers also appear on the American Association for Justice’s list of Top Ten Worst Insurance Companies for consumers. Is your insurer on THAT list?

Insurance companies are businesses. Their most basic goal is to pay out less in claims than they make in premiums. Every claim paid out, whether it is a workers’ compensation claim, a no-fault claim, or an auto liability claim, cuts into their profits.

If you’ve sustained injuries as a result of an auto accident, or if you have a work-related injury, you are a liability in the eyes of the insurance company. Their end-of-the-day goal is to pay you as little as possible. 

Whether you’ve got a Minnesota workers’ compensation injury, or injuries as a result of a Minnesota car accident, an experienced attorney can help make sure you get the compensation you are entitled to.
