Giving thanks to professionals who make our client’s lives better during hard times.

Our law firm will be closed today for Thanksgiving. We will be spending time with family, holiday shopping, watching the Detroit Lions, and eating turkey.

Today’s blog post is dedicated to those individuals who assist our clients with recovery. This includes medical professionals, vocational counselors, social workers, and magistrates.

Please take some time and give thanks for the people fighting to make our client’s lives better during hard times.

Medical professionals

Access to medical care is one of the most important benefits under workers’ compensation in Michigan. All reasonable and necessary medical treatment is supposed to be covered without co-pays or deductibles. Unfortunately, insurance companies put up road blocks and getting authorization can be a challenge. Medical bills go unpaid for months and steep discounts are always required.

Vocational counselors

Changes to Michigan law permit insurance companies to use “wage earning capacity” to cut the weekly rate. Disabled employees on workers’ compensation can no longer count on getting 80% of their after-tax wages. Experts are hired to say a person can find a new job and it does not matter whether the position truly exists. Vocational counselors are also hired to help people transition to new careers and can be a tremendous resource when used appropriately.

Social workers

It can be a financial disaster when a person is cut-off from workers’ compensation benefits. This is especially true for individuals living paycheck to paycheck. Social workers are a great resource for state assistance and low cost medical care. Just having someone listen can also be very helpful.

Magistrates

These hardworking professionals are responsible for deciding the facts and law in each case. We are thankful for magistrates who help get cases settled through facilitation and make fair determinations when a case must proceed to trial. It is not an easy job and neither side is usually happy with the result.

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.
