Michigan workers compensation settlement attorney offers suggestions for after your case.

We have blogged in the past about the pros and cons of settlement. This is usually the hardest decision to make in a workers compensation case. A good lawyer will make recommendations but the decision is always up to you.

A workers compensation settlement includes money for lost wages, medical treatment, and vocational rehabilitation. You will be responsible for your disability once the case is settled.

Many of our clients are happy to have the insurance company off their back. However, we suggest a plan for the future before your case is settled.

Get required medical care

Medical care is perhaps the most important benefit under workers compensation. A person simply cannot recover until they have appropriate medical treatment.

A settlement allows you the freedom to see your own doctor without interference from the insurance company. You can use settlement money for physical therapy, surgery, or any other medical care that has been denied.

Invest in your future

Most of our clients simply want to get retrained for a new job. A settlement is a great way of paying for college or vocational training.

You can also start your own business and hire employees to do physical labor. This allows you to be productive even with your restrictions.

Investing your settlement is a good idea too. Ask your attorney to recommend a financial planner or banker.

Apply for Social Security Disability

Some individuals cannot return to work and should apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). This will provide lifetime cash benefits including access to Medicare health insurance.

Most people who have worked for a period of ten years before their injury will be eligible. It is important to speak with your attorney before you apply for SSDI.
