CRAIG A. LARSEN

Experience

Craig joined Cousineau McGuire in 2001 and devotes his practice solely to workers’ compensation law with the majority of his time spent representing employers, insurers and self-insured employers. Craig also represents intervenors in workers’ compensation matters.

 

During his career, Craig has handled a great variety of cases, including simple back injury cases, multi-party contribution claims, death cases, catastrophic injuries and claims of psychological injury. He has represented clients before the Workers’ Compensation Division, the Office of Administrative Hearings, the Minnesota Workers’ Compensation Court of Appeals and the Minnesota Supreme Court.

 

Prior to joining Cousineau McGuire, Craig spent twelve years representing employees in workers’ compensation cases and three years as in-house counsel at Home Insurance Company. He also worked for the Department of Labor & Industry, Workers’ Compensation Division; for Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company as a workers’ compensation claim representative; and for an independent adjusting company investigating workers’ compensation claims. All of this experience gives him a unique perspective on the Minnesota workers’ compensation system and the law.
