Get The Workers’ Compensation Benefits You Need
When you have been injured on the job, you are left not only with pain, but also medical costs and lost income until you can return to work. Michigan’s workers’ compensation system is designed to help you with these costs.
Unfortunately, making your way through this system often means working your way through frustrating bureaucracy. It can also mean having to argue against your employer and its insurance company. If you are in that position, you need a lawyer with experience in workers’ compensation.
As a workers’ compensation attorney, I help workers and their families get the benefits they need and deserve. I have experience with many issues, including:
- Construction accidents
- Factory accidents
- Office accidents
- Work-related motor vehicle accidents
- Work-related illness
I can help clients at many points in the process, from filing initial claims to arguing on appeal when necessary. I know the pressures my clients are facing, and I work hard to help them get the benefits they need and deserve.
Why You Need A Workers’ Compensation Attorney
One key point to remember about workers’ compensation is that it is a no-fault system. Unlike a personal injury lawsuit, you don’t have to prove that your employer did anything wrong to cause your injury. You just have to show that your injury happened during the course of your employment.
When everything goes smoothly, you report your injury or illness, you get the treatment you need, you file your claim, and you receive workers’ compensation benefits to help you with your medical costs and lost wages. Unfortunately, insurers often resist paying the full amount in benefits you deserve. Employers, fearing higher insurance premiums, sometimes resist honoring claims. It can sometimes take months and a lot of hard work before you recover the full benefits you need.
As a workers’ compensation attorney, I help people avoid mistakes in their claims, advise them on their rights and argue on their behalf at hearings or on appeal.
