We Help You Navigate the Complex Workers' Comp System
If you have been injured on the job, you are entitled to certain benefits under Michigan law. The Michigan Worker's Disability Compensation Act represents a trade-off of sorts for the employee: the employee receives compensation for any job-related injury regardless of fault, but the nature and extent of benefits is limited to that provided by the Act. The Act also represents a similar trade-off for employers: the employer is liable for some benefits in nearly every case of workplace injury, but this liability is limited, even in cases of employer fault, to the nature and extent of benefits provided by the Act. The risk of workplace injury thus becomes a cost of doing business.
Navigation of the Michigan Worker's Disability Compensation Act requires the assistance of an experienced attorney. Our workers' compensation lawyers can explain the complex process in simple language, inform you of your rights and vigorously pursue the workers' comp benefits you need and deserve.
Whether you need assistance with an initial claim for benefits, denial of your application or challenging the termination of your benefits, our attorneys have the knowledge and skills to assist you. Contact our worker's comp lawyers at 1-877-544-3733 for a free consultation.
