Michigan Workers' Compensation Law

Detroit Personal Injury Claims Lawyer

The basis of Michigan workers' compensation law is that in return for protection against personal injury lawsuits when employees get hurt or suffer from an occupational disease, companies must provide insurance to pay for those workers' medical costs, lost wages and necessary vocational retraining.

Unfortunately, workers' compensation insurance companies train their claims adjusters and other representatives in tactics to minimize what they must pay out. The rules, procedures and requirements can be intimidating, and it can be costly to believe what your claim representative tells you. Please contact us for the straight story on your rights under Michigan workers' compensation law.

Get the Straight Story on Your Rights and Benefits You Can Receive

A claim representative's focus on protecting his or her company's profits may be the most important reason you need an experienced workers' compensation law firm on your side. Problems we have overcome for our valued clients throughout Wayne County, Macomb County and Oakland County, Michigan, include:

  • Claim denials for a variety of invalid medical, technical or legal reasons
  • Stopping or minimizing your benefits
  • Insistence that you cannot see your own doctor after the first 10 days from reporting your claim — or otherwise advising you against receiving care you truly need
  • Unfair demands involving an "independent" (we say "insurance") medical examiner (IME), such as setting required appointments without enough notice or using a biased evaluation to force you back to work before you are ready
