Michigan work injury lawyer explains important changes to workers compensation and how to protect your wage loss benefits.

Here is a video update from Alex Berman concerning changes to Michigan’s workers compensation law. Mr. Berman is the founder of Michigan Workers Comp Lawyers and has been representing injured employees for over 35 years. He is considered an expert in the field of workers compensation and has recovered millions of dollars for his clients.

The most important change to Michigan workers compensation

The most important change that you should know about is how your wage loss benefits will be calculated in the future. The law still provides for payment of 80% of your after-tax average weekly wage if you cannot work. However, employers and insurance companies can now reduce your wage loss benefits if they believe you are only partially disabled and have a wage earning capacity.

Your wage loss benefits can be reduced just because the insurance company thinks you can find another job. It does not matter if you are earning other wages or not.

Why you should call a Michigan workers compensation lawyer

Help is available and you do not need to accept an unfair weekly amount. An experienced workers compensation lawyer can hold the insurance company accountable for paying the correct wage loss benefits.

To speak with one of our workers compensation lawyers, call (855) 221-2667 for a free consultation. There is no fee unless workers compensation benefits are recovered for you.
