Supporting the Next Generation of Worker Advocates
Michigan Workers Comp Lawyers is pleased to offer our seventh annual $500 law school scholarship in 2023!
Workers’ compensation is one of the most important benefits that employees and their family members rely on to support them after an unexpected workplace injury. Yet because the laws about workers compensation coverage can vary significantly from state to state, injured workers are often unaware of their rights, and—far too often—employers and insurance companies try to avoid paying what they owe.
For more than 40 years, Michigan Workers Comp Lawyers has been fighting to protect employee rights in Michigan and around the country. With the launch of our annual scholarship, we are proud to support future lawyers who will continue this fight in the years to come.
