Michigan work comp lawyer wishes you a Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah.
The holiday season is always a difficult time for our clients. It’s hard to celebrate when your wage loss benefits have been cut-off and additional medical treatment has not been authorized.
These challenges are even worse this year as the Michigan Legislature has enacted major work comp reform.
Employers and insurance companies can now reduce wage loss benefits based upon what they think you can earn in another job. It does not matter if you are working or not.
Several of our clients have seen their weekly checks cut in half. It’s hard enough trying to support a family on the full 80% weekly rate.
Don’t lose hope
The insurance company is betting that you accept its decision and simply go away. Remember that you can always challenge an unfair decision in court.
The first step is always the hardest. Pick up the phone and find out about your legal rights!
Even if you are being paid work comp, you could be missing out on benefits that you don’t even know about. Examples include mileage reimbursement and attendant care.
