Honor the men and woman who served in the U.S. Armed Forces by exercising political freedoms.
Our law firm will be closed on May 30, 2016 in observance of Memorial Day. This is a time to remember and honor those service members who died for our nation. Each year we ask that you take time away from the usual BBQs and summer activities to flex your political freedoms. There is no better way to honor our fallen soldiers. Here are 3 ways to get your voice heard.
1. Telephone call/E-mail
Please remember that your state representatives are the people with real control over workers’ compensation in Michigan. Find out who these individuals are and reach out. A telephone call or e-mail is an effective way to be heard. Ask them to end the practice of “phantom wages.”
2. Vote in the 2016 election
Special interest groups used political muscle to reform workers’ compensation in 2011 and this has resulted in a $300 million windfall for businesses. Money does not grow on trees and these savings are from reducing your work comp benefits. It is an election year and we ask that you vote in 2016!
3. Tell your story
Channel 7 News (WXYZ) recently did a story on our client Tim Carr. He was an EMT for the City of Detroit who suffered a spinal injury. The TPA handling his claim reduced wage loss benefits to $20 per week saying he could find other work. It took great courage for Tim to give the interview and tell how his benefits were unfairly reduced.
