“Alex, your firm and coworkers were all so kind and professional. I appreciate your due diligence and the results thereafter. I am truly satisfied and will always recommend this firm to others.

– Jaqueline Henderson, Detroit
“I had a tricky case and was very doubtful that anyone could help me out with my situation. Jeff told me he had everything under control and he did. Everything with my work comp case worked out very well. Jeff was extremely responsive and got me my compensation. I would give him straight A’s.”
– David Schneider, Tecumseh
“My workers comp checks would get delayed and I needed someone to help. Attorney Jeff Kaufman was very helpful with me. He was a buffer and made things happen, so I started receiving my checks again. It was a smooth transition with no hiccups. I was always able to get a hold of Jeff, and if he wasn’t in the office, he would always call me right away within the same afternoon. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who gets hurt on the job in Michigan. He got a settlement for me and it was more than I was expecting.”
– Bryan, Farmington Hills

Why Do I Need a Detroit Workers’ Comp Lawyer?

If you are injured on the job in Wayne County, you need a Detroit workers’ comp lawyer to help you. An experienced attorney will help you protect your legal rights to benefits to cover lost wages, medical bills, and the costs of vocational rehabilitation. Michigan work injury law is complicated, complex, and confusing. Our attorneys can help you safely navigate the process, avoiding the many traps for the unwary injured employee.

Take for example we represented a woman who tripped and fell at work. She suffered a bad knee injury that required extensive surgery. Her work injury benefits were cut-off after the insurance company sent her to a so-called “independent” medical examination. It was concluded that her problems were caused by degenerative arthritis. Our attorneys were able to get her a lump sum cash settlement that paid her lost wages and medical bills.

An experienced Detroit workers’ comp lawyer can protect you from insurance companies and claim adjusters who try to trick injured employees who are already under financial pressure into “settling” their injury claims for much less than they are worth forfeiting all their future legal rights to medical and wage loss benefits.

Our Detroit workers’ comp lawyers are here to help you and protect you. We can make sure you receive everything you are entitled to after a workplace injury. That’s why it’s so important to call and have a free consultation with an experienced attorney immediately after a workplace injury.

If you or a loved one are injured on the job, you may be entitled to valuable benefits. But it’s important to remember that you’re more likely to recover the full value of your claim if you hire the right legal team to protect you and your legal rights. Here are some additional answers to frequently asked questions. (And you can always call to speak to an experienced attorney for free with no obligation.)

How much does a workers’ comp lawyer cost in Detroit?

Our Detroit workers’ comp lawyers only charge a small percentage of any settlement. Individuals who are receiving benefits pay just 10% of the total settlement obtained. Individuals who have a disputed claim pay 15% of the first $25,000 and 10% of the remainder of their settlement. Individuals who have their claim voluntarily paid or win a trial can pay up to 30% of past due benefits.


Is hiring a workers’ comp lawyer after a work injury in Detroit worth it?

Insurance companies have lawyers on staff who review claims even before they are disputed. Insurance companies use private investigators and defense medical examiners to play dirty. They are looking for any excuse to stop paying your benefits.

It is always recommended that you have a Detroit workers’ comp lawyer on your side to level the playing field. There is no fee to meet or discuss a claim with our attorneys. Find out about hidden dangers before they jeopardize payment of your medical or wage loss benefits.


How long does a settlement take?

A good estimate for how long settlements take in Michigan is 12 months from the pre-trial date. Michigan law allows people to settle their work injury claims after 6 months from their injury date. Cases that are in litigation can take additional time before settlement is possible.


What happens if my work injury claim is disputed?

Insurance companies want to deny claims because it saves them money. Employees who find their benefits denied should file an Application for Mediation or Hearing. This will start a formal court process where a magistrate will decide if additional benefits should be paid. Medical evidence from your doctor can be used to prove entitlement. We think it is a good idea to hire an experienced Detroit workers’ comp lawyer to challenge any unfair denial, so legal rights are fully protected. Many denied claims are eventually settled for a lump sum cash payment.
