Preliminary details about workplace fatalities reported to the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration during 2017.

The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) has released preliminary information about 36 workplace fatalities in 2017. This data is published to help employers build hazard awareness and prevent risk for similar occurrences in the workplace.

The most frequent causes of death were from falls, struck by, and caught in or between. Occupations included were crane inspector, mechanic, maintenance worker, public service worker, welder, general laborer, carpenter, laborer, iron worker, oven operator, journeyman/technician/lineman, environmental chemical application, grain elevator worker, roofer, farm hand, equipment operator, pipe-fitter, superintendent, tow truck driver, driver, farmer.

Our law firm has represented many families who have suffered this tragedy. No amount of money can ever replace a family member. Here is some additional information about workers’ compensation.

Michigan workers’ compensation pays just $6,000 for burial expenses. Medical benefits incurred should be covered 100% without co-pays or deductibles. Family members can make a claim for 500 weeks of lost wages if they can prove dependency. This is a complicated process because spouses can be disqualified if they receive income from another source. Children over the age of 16 must also prove dependency and benefits can be stopped when they reach age 18.

Michigan Workers Comp Lawyers never charges a fee to evaluate a potential case. Our law firm has represented injured and disabled workers exclusively for more than 35 years. Call (844) 201-9497 for a free consultation today.
