Wishing our blog readers a Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah.

Our law firm will be closed today and tomorrow in celebration of Christmas. We hope all of our blog readers have a joyful and relaxing holiday.

Please also take some time to think about the men and woman who are struggling this holiday season. Financial problems are common for people who are cut-off from workers’ compensation.

These individuals just want to pay rent and keep the lights on. Gift giving and extravagant holiday meals become much less important.

Help fight misconceptions about workers’ compensation

A recent article showed that nearly 40% of Americans think people on workers’ compensation are lazy. The truth is most people simply want to get better and return to their jobs. Wage loss benefits are not available when an individual refuses work. Insurance companies can even take a credit based upon jobs that a person could hypothetically perform!

Some people believe that Michigan businesses cannot afford the high cost of workers’ compensation insurance. The pure premium rate has actually declined 32.7% in the last 4 years. Total benefits grew at negative 24.9% despite a 4.6% increase in covered workers during the same period of time. Michigan ranks dead last in the country for benefit growth.

Statistics published by the WCA show magistrates gave just 18 open awards during the first 3 quarters of 2015. This is contrasted by 28 denials. The chance of winning continuing benefits at trial was just 39%. Not exactly great odds.

Workers’ compensation is not welfare and nobody gets rich. The maximum weekly benefit for 2015 was just $820.00. No pain and suffering is permitted.
