Michigan workers comp lawyer explains your legal rights and why it is important to get help with your claim even if you are receiving benefits.
The workers compensation law was enacted to provide lost wages, medical treatment, and vocational rehabilitation to employees who are injured at work. Benefits are supposed to be paid regardless of fault for as long as the employee cannot work or needs medical treatment.
Some employers and insurance companies are more concerned with their bottom line than helping an injured worker. This results in the employee not being treated fairly and not being told of all the benefits available under workers comp.
It is common to see an injured worker being paid the wrong amount for lost wages or being told to use his or her own health insurance for medical treatment. This results in the injured worker having to pay deductibles and co-pays out of his or her own pocket.
Workers comp benefits cannot be denied because you spoke with a lawyer
We frequently see individuals who are scared that their employer or the insurance company will stop workers comp benefits because they talked to a lawyer. Do not be intimidated from getting the help you need for a successful recovery.
A lawyer does not have to make his or her presence known. All communication is private and confidential. Sometimes an experienced workers comp lawyer can help you resolve minor problems on your own.
Don’t wait for a problem to happen before you get help
Hire an experienced workers comp lawyer who can monitor your claim and advise you on strategy before a problem even occurs. Do not wait until your employer or the insurance company has stopped or reduced benefits to get help.
An experienced workers comp lawyer will not charge you anything to meet or discuss your case. No fee will be charged unless additional benefits are recovered for you.
