Video transcript: Hi, my name is Dennis Morse, and I've been involved in workers compensation claims in Michigan for over 40 years. I get calls from people who are on workers comp or receiving some benefits. You may think those are all the benefits you're entitled to. There are other benefits that either the employer or the insurance company hasn't told you about. All medical care for the work-related injury should be paid for by the workers compensation carrier or your employer. If you have to be off of work because of the work-related injury, you are entitled to wage loss replacement. And the third benefit, one that insurance companies typically don't tell you about, is the mileage reimbursement. While you are off of work, every time you go from home to any medical care or treatment for the work-related injury, you are entitled to a mileage reimbursement for that trip. There are so many other issues that we need to talk about, and that's why you're calling an attorney. We'll make sure you get everything you're entitled to under the workers compensation statute.
