Michigan workers compensation lawyer explains the Notice of Dispute Report and lists the insurance companies with the highest percentage of disputed claims.

Michigan law allows aninsurance company to dispute payment of workers compensation benefits anytime in the claims process. This means weekly checks and medical treatment can be stopped without warning.

Our clients are typically blindsided when they receive a Notice of Dispute (Form 107) in the mail. We immediately file a case and hold the insurance company accountable for paying the correct benefits.

But what happens to those people who don’t hire a lawyer? Here are some shocking statistics you should know about.

Notice of Dispute Report

The Notice of Dispute Report published by the State of Michigan shows the number of claims that were initially accepted by theinsurance company and then later disputed.

Excluded are claims in which an Application for Mediation or Hearing (Form 104A) was filed. Meaning these disputes were never challenged in court.

The average for all insurance companies in Michigan was 7.9% for 2013. However, some insurance companies have rates exceeding 20%.
