Injuries do not have to be the result of a single traumatic event to qualify a worker for workers' compensation. Victims of occupational injuries and illnesses, such as back injuries caused by repetitive movements, are just as eligible for benefits. If you or a loved one needs assistance getting workers' comp benefits in Wisconsin or Minnesota, the lawyers at Fitzpatrick, Skemp & Associates, LLC, are ready to help you.
In the last 13 years alone, we have recovered more than $70 million for injured people. We have decades of experience and a commitment to putting the needs of our clients first. No matter how challenging a case may seem, even if you have already applied for compensation and have been rejected, you can be confident that we can get you the benefits you deserve.
What Benefits Can I Get Through Workers' Compensation?
Many people are not completely aware of the benefits that workers' comp provides. Essentially, medical treatment and a portion of lost wages are covered. There is no compensation for pain and suffering. Because these benefits are so limited, it is important that an attorney do everything possible to maximize them.
Why Consult An Attorney?
Since our law firm also handles personal injury claims, we will review your case to determine if there is a possible third-party claim. These are claims against parties other than an employer or co-worker in work accident cases. For example, if you were injured in an on-the-job car accident, you are eligible for workers' comp, but you may also be able to sue the negligent driver who caused the accident.

We offer free initial consultations, and we handle all cases on a contingency basis. We will not ask you to pay any fees unless we are successful in getting you compensation.
Can I Choose My Own Doctor?
A common misconception is that you are required to go to the doctor that your employer tells you to go to. This is not true. You can go to the doctor of your choice.
Over the years, we have gotten to know Wisconsin's doctors. We know their strengths and weaknesses. We know the direction to point you in to see that your treatment is untainted by doctors concerned with the needs of your employer or the work comp insurance company.
