Michigan Workers' Compensation Settlements

When a Michigan employee suffers a work-related injury, that worker is entitled to compensation for the costs that arise from that injury, including:

In most cases a worker receive worker's compensation benefits voluntarily. Most injured workers return to work with the same employer and do not suffer permanent disabling injuries. However, a significant number of claims are disputed for a variety of reasons. In these case, and in cases where benefits are ongoing, it is possible to negotiate with the employer and its insurance carrier for a lump-sum settlement. In Michigan, this is called a "redemption of liability."

If a claim is disputed, the workers' compensation process is lengthy and difficult for most injured workers, often including an initial application, medical examinations, stopped or delayed benefits, and a lengthy hearing process. Many clients want to avoid the difficult workers' compensation process by negotiating a settlement of the claim. In a workers' compensation settlement in Michigan, an injured party typically gives up the right to receive any further benefits in exchange for a lump-sum settlement. This can include past and future lost wages, medical care and vocational rehabilitation.
