When you become injured in the workplace, it can impact your mental and physical health for years to come. If you are involved in a workplace accident in Michigan state, it’s critical to inform your employer immediately, keep a record of the date and time of the accident, and then seek representation.
Workers’ compensation lawyers like the team at Flint, MI law firm Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., can help you navigate workers’ compensation laws to help get Flint workers’ compensation to cover the cost of your medical bills.
On average, there are between two and three workplace-related deaths per week in Michigan, highlighting the alarmingly high rate at which severe workplace injuries occur.
Workplace injuries can occur anywhere on or during the job and anywhere on company property. A workplace injury is not limited to a one-time event but can be a condition that repeatedly occurs, like a repetitive strain. A workers’ compensation attorney can help you with insurance company claims or workers’ compensation if you incur lost wages due to personal injury.
Unfortunately, it is common for long-term disability claims to be denied the first time around in Flint, Michigan, and all over Michigan state, but the success rate increases when injury attorneys become involved.
When a claim is denied, it is possible to challenge the insurance carrier with a lawsuit because a devised scheme is used to illegally deny/terminate claims for thousands, violating ERISA (Employee Retirement and Income Security Act). Some of these lawsuits have resulted in a reconsideration of cases, so if you are denied compensation for medical benefits on unjust grounds, a suit of this nature might be something you and your lawyer want to discuss.
Hiring an attorney to help you with a disability is vital to receiving compensation because of government insurance agencies’ rampant abuse. Applying for Social Security Disability Insurance is a complicated process, and it is common to be denied, especially without a lawyer, even if you are confident that you should qualify.
Michigan personal injury lawyers understand the complex laws surrounding workers’ compensation in the state of Michigan. As such, they can assist you in the appeal process if your initial claim is denied, to get you the benefits you need more quickly.
