Hurt on-the-job in Warren, MI? You could have a substantial claim for work comp benefits. Here is some information that you need to know.
Insurance companies and employers can dispute the payment of work comp benefits at any time. This means they don’t need a good reason to stop paying you.
Work comp benefits
There are several important benefits that you should know about. Don’t count on the insurance company to explain your legal rights.
You have the right to unlimited reasonable and necessary medical treatment. This includes paying for attendant care to help you around the home. Doctor and hospital visits should be covered without any co-pays or deductibles. Mileage reimbursement should be paid every time you go to an appointment.
You also have the right to lost wages if you cannot work. You should be paid 80% of your after-tax average weekly wage. Weekly checks must continue for as long as you are disabled. Insurance companies fail to include overtime in their calculations and routinely underpay people.
It can be hard to find a job when you have always done heavy work. Vocational rehabilitation is available to help you get retrained for another career. Some people use this benefit to pay for college.
