Oakland County Workers' Compensation Claim Lawyer

If you are injured on the job, you must promptly notify your supervisor. There are deadlines and requirements to attend to, but the most important thing is to speak with an experienced attorney. This is because there may be snags or resistance to your obtaining what you are entitled to. Many injured workers neglect to file a claim before the deadline and lose any chance at the compensation they need and deserve. Stand up for your rights whatever anyone says and call Adler Stilman, PLLC.

You may be requested to see a doctor chosen by your employer. In some circumstances it pays to be wary. If possible, see an independent doctor who can accurately and honestly diagnose your injury and its work-related causes. Contact our Michigan law firm for assistance through every step of your claim.

Pursing All Forms of Recovery So You Can Move on With Your Life

Workers' compensation is a system that was put in place to reduce litigation and over-burdened court dockets. It prohibits lawsuits against your employer, but should allow you to obtain compensation promptly and easily. A third party lawsuit is completely different. If someone other than your employer contributed to the accident and your injuries, you have a right to sue them and you are not limited to the moderate amount of compensation allowed under workers' compensation.

Can You Return to Work in Oakland County?

If you are able to return to work, your compensation may be terminated. If you are able to work and you refuse, it could also be terminated. Our team of workers' compensation attorneys will advocate for you. Your employer would prefer not to make a work comp claim with their insurance carrier. They may deny that your accident or injury is work-related. Your employer might even claim that you are an independent contractor ineligible for workers compensation. No matter what issues arise, our team will fight to protect your rights.
