Happy Holidays from the Law Offices of Alex Berman, P.C.
Our law firm is closed for Christmas. We hope all of our blog readers have a joyful and fun holiday. Please also take some time to think about the men and woman who are struggling. It is hard to provide for your family when workers compensation benefits have been cut-off. Here are three ways you can make a difference this holiday season.
1. Be a good listener
Sometimes this job requires more listening and less talking. A sympathetic ear goes a long way to helping someone reduce stress and overcome their fears. You can help a person just by offering them a chance to vent.
2. Get politically active
Workers compensation has become a political football in the State of Michigan. Special interests groups have spent big money to change the game in their favor. Sending an e-mail to your state representative costs nothing and takes less than 10 minutes. Make your voice heard!
3. Push back against misconceptions
A recent study showed that nearly 40% of Americans think people on workers compensation are lazy. Fight these misconceptions with your truth. Tell your story to 3 friends and family members. Explain how the insurance company unfairly disputed benefits.
