Workers compensation lawyer explains what injuries are covered and how to get the most benefits.

Any injury caused by your employment should be covered under workers compensation.  The system is designed to provide benefits regardless of fault.  You only need to provide notice and claim to get workers compensation benefits.

Injury can be caused by a sudden accident or from a repetitive activity on the job. Dropping a heavy item on your foot would be considered a sudden accident. Using your hands all day would be considered a repetitive activity that can cause problems over time. Both types of injuries are covered under workers compensation.

Even old injuries or preexisting conditions that are significantly aggravated by your employment could be covered under workers compensation.

There are some limits to workers compensation

In general, injuries resulting from employee intoxication or involving the use of illegal drugs are not covered by workers compensation. Additionally, injuries suffered while committing a crime or while violating company policy may not be covered.

You should speak with an experienced workers compensation attorney if your benefits have been denied for whatever reason.

We represented an individual from Sterling Heights, MI who lost his job for stealing.  We were still able to resolve his workers compensation case for a lump sum settlement.

How to get the most workers compensation possible

Workers compensation pays unlimited medical treatment for your lifetime. You can also get lost wages for the time that you cannot work. Vocational rehabilitation is available if you need to be retrained for a new job.

The key to a successful workers compensation case is knowing your legal rights and what benefits are available under the law.

Call (855) 221-2667 to speak with an experienced workers compensation lawyer.  We offer free advice and never charge a fee unless workers compensation benefits are recovered.
