Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in Lansing

You may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits if you are injured on the job. Getting professional help for your workers’ compensation claim can help maximize the benefits you receive.

Workers’ Compensation Laws in Michigan

In Michigan, employers must carry insurance to cover an employee in the event of an injury. If a private employer has three or more employees at any one time or employs one or more workers for 35 or more hours per week for 13 or more weeks, the employer is subject to the Workers’ Disability Compensation Act (Section 115).

This workers’ compensation law states that the injured party can receive compensation for medical bills, vocational rehabilitation services, and a percentage of lost wages. The injured party can also receive compensation for a permanent injury that limits the ability to work in the future.

Businesses are responsible for providing injured workers with the forms necessary to file a claim.

Common Issues with Workers’ Comp Claims

While you cannot be fired for filing a workers’ compensation claim, you are not guaranteed your job will be there when you recover. Some employers may keep the job available for a period of time, but they have a right to fill it eventually.

If you feel that your employer is offering you a job that is not within your medical restrictions, or a job that is demeaning, or an insurance company is denying some part of your claim, getting help from an experienced attorney specializing in workers’ compensation issues can ensure that your dignity is respected and your right to coverage is maintained.
