Workplace Injury Lawyer in Clinton

If you’ve been injured on the job, you know that the consequences of a workplace injury extend far beyond a trip to a healthcare provider. Injured workers can amass large medical bills quickly, and if they’re out of work for any period and lost wages can have a devastating effect on family finances.

Your company’s workers’ compensation system covers most work-related injuries. Simple slips and falls or a strained back may be relatively easy to remedy. However, severe harm (such as a brain injury), long-term disability, or disputed claims can be more complicated legal issues.

Consulting with one of the experienced workers’ compensation lawyers at Cochran, Kroll, & Associates, P.C., can assist you in determining your best course of action.

Workers’ Compensation and Employee Rights

In Michigan, most employers are required to have workers’ compensation insurance, and employees who sustain job injuries are eligible for medical treatment and recovery of lost wages. Employees don’t have to prove negligence on their employer’s part, only to establish that an injury occurred on the job.

Your employer and their insurance company are required to provide for any necessary and reasonable medical care due to a workplace accident, including, in some instances, long-term rehabilitation. Nurse attorney and trial lawyer, Eileen Kroll, at the law office of Cochran, Kroll, & Associates, P.C., can help you navigate the specifics of your workers’ compensation benefits.

In addition to healthcare costs, injured employees are also entitled to lost overtime, premium pay, and bonuses. Calculating your benefits can be complicated, depending on several factors. A practiced workers’ compensation attorney can assist you in determining that to which you are entitled.

Personal Injury Claims

While most workplace injury incidents are resolved through a workers’ compensation claim, many mistakenly believe it is their only recourse. If your injury’s circumstances indicate negligence on your employer’s part, you may want to consult an attorney about filing a personal injury claim.

Under Michigan workers’ compensation laws, injured employees cannot claim compensation for pain and suffering. Personal injury law, however, does allow for compensatory damages and may be worth pursuing.
