Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in Warren

If you’ve been injured in the workplace and are going through a difficult time, you may be eligible for financial aid. Being injured on the job is frightening especially if you have outstanding medical bills, lost wages, or other legal issues.

If you suffered a workplace injury, call our law firm of Cochran, Kroll, & Associates, P.C. to work with a workers’ compensation attorney who can help you deal with statute of limitations, insurance companies, filing a claim, and more.

Am I Eligible for Compensation?

Under the Michigan Workers’ Disability Compensation Act, almost every employer in the state of Michigan is required to carry insurance for their workers. Some workers who are ineligible are certain agricultural workers, independent contractors, federal employees, and businesses that have less than three employees.

Some of the most common work injuries are carpal tunnel syndrome, machinery accidents, hospital accidents, car accidents, electrocution, and asbestos exposure. If you’ve been injured in one of these ways, then, under the law in Michigan, you may be due to financial payment.

What Do I Do?

The first step to take when you’ve been injured in the workplace is to contact your employer within 90 days of your incident. To file your claim, the time frame is different. Under Michigan law, you have two years from the date of the injury or two years from when the damage first became apparent.

Dealing with insurance companies and claims can be confusing; it’s helpful to have a knowledgeable guide to help you sift through the different processes and forms. An experienced lawyer at our law firm can help.

What Will I Get?

In Michigan, you may be liable for up to 80% of your after-taxes wage. If you have to switch careers due to the severity of your injuries and have a lower-paying position than you did before, you can claim up to 80% of the difference between your pre-injury earnings and your new wage.

Michigan also does not differentiate between temporary and permanent disabilities, so, no matter how severe your injuries are, you will be able to gain some compensation. Depending on the type of injury you suffered, the court may grant you lifelong wage loss benefits.
