Using our ABC rule can help you win workers comp in Michigan.

It’s amazing how complicated Michigan’s workers comp law has become. Issues involving wage earning capacity have really changed how we handle these cases. The burden is so difficult that some people win their case but get very little benefits.

Vocational counselors are used to show that jobs are available despite a person’s disability. Insurance companies get an automatic credit for these wages regardless of whether they are actually paid. The system is not fair and it hurts Michigan families.

The only option is to challenge an unfair decision in court. The process is slow and most people cannot afford to fight the insurance company for months or years. Use our ABC rule to help you win workers comp in Michigan.

Always be looking for work

A magistrate may consider a good faith job search to decide whether you are entitled to full wage loss benefits. Apply for any job within your qualifications and training. You should even consider jobs that are unskilled. Keep records of your job search and why you were not hired. The more evidence you obtain, the stronger your case becomes. Don’t wait until a week before trial to start.

Beware private investigators

Insurance companies routinely hire private investigators to follow people who claim workers comp benefits. Surveillance video is taken out-of-context and will be used against you at trial. The goal is to show that you are a liar. Never do any activity outside your restrictions that could be used against you at trial.

Call your doctor

Medical evidence is the most important part of your workers comp case. It is important to follow-up with your doctor and continue treatment. You cannot win your case without a doctor who gives restrictions and testifies that your medical condition is work-related.
