Vocational Rehabilitation After a Workplace Injury

Michigan Worker Compensation Benefits

The need for "rehabilitation" after a work injury can become a source of dispute — but if you need medical services or education in order to get back to work, there is a very good chance the law is on your side. In addition to medical care and lost wages, Michigan workers' compensation law provides for vocational rehabilitation benefits.

At Adler Stilman, PLLC, we know the law and your rights in great depth. Our lawyers are veterans of thousands of successful claims and appeals resulting in Wayne County, Macomb County and Oakland County workers receiving the benefits they deserve. Whether you have just been injured and need help understanding your rights, or you have run into a problem with your employer or insurer, please contact us for caring, effective legal counsel.

Helping You Get the Services You Need to Return to Work

Our legal team has extensive medical knowledge and a strong understanding of all the benefits you can receive. After anything from a neck or back injury to the diagnosis of a disabling condition such as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), we may be able to help you get vocational rehabilitation, such as:

  • An adjustment to your work station or working conditions that enables you to perform your former job
  • Help from a vocational rehabilitation specialist in order to define another job with your employer that you can perform
  • Up to two years of retraining or re-education enabling you to return to the work force in a different occupation or for a different employer
