Three New Year’s resolutions that can help you be successful with your workers compensation case.

Insurance companies often deny workers compensation claims to save money. It is your responsibility to file a case and hold them accountable for paying benefits.

Michigan law is complicated and it is biased in favor of employers. You could have all the facts on your side and still lose.

We want all of our clients to be in the best position to win their case. Here are three New Year’s resolutions that you can start immediately.

1. See your doctor

The most important aspect of your case is medical evidence. This will prove that your injury is work-related and disabling. Don’t count on insurance company doctors to support your case.

It is very important to see a doctor on a regular basis. Use health insurance if workers compensation has denied your claim. Apply for Medicaid if you do not have insurance.

2. Look for jobs

The insurance company will hire vocational experts to say jobs are available within your skills, qualifications, and restrictions. This can be used to defeat your case at trial.

You have a duty to perform a good-faith job search. This is a requirement even if you are still technically employed. A job search can be used as evidence that no employer will actually hire you.

3. Stay in touch with your lawyer

Your lawyer must know about changes to your medical condition and work status. Let our office staff know about restrictions and surgical procedures. Keep track of your medical bills and send them on a monthly basis.

Please also let us know about changes to telephone numbers and addresses. We must be able to find you if something important happens in your case.
