Who determines if your disability qualifies for SSI benefits?

You have recently filed an application to see if you are eligible to begin receiving Social Security benefits for your disability and are waiting to hear back whether or not your claim was approved. As with all other states, the state of Michigan upholds pretty stringent guidelines when determining whether or not your situation qualifies you to begin receiving benefits. This strict process of screening applicants prevents people from taking advantage of a valuable resource for injured individuals. 

What is carpal tunnel syndrome?

Depending on what type of work you do at your Michigan job, you may have to perform a number of repetitive motions every day. If these motions involve your hands, fingers and wrists, you could wind up with carpal tunnel syndrome. As the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons explains, carpal tunnel syndrome starts in your wrists, but almost invariably progresses to your hands, arms, shoulders and possibly even your neck and back.

Man killed in trench collapse, company fined

When construction companies begin working on a new project in Michigan, they often implement stringent protocols to maintain safety for their workers. The construction site may be regularly monitored by superiors who help to identify and manage potential risks that could become dangerous if left unnoticed. However, there are times when corners are cut and a seemingly simple oversight can put the lives of workers at the construction site in immediate danger. 

What to do next after a denied workers' compensation claim

After suffering an injury at work, you understand how the impact of your accident can affect multiple areas of your life. In addition to the physical pain you are enduring, you are also dealing with medical bills and other recovery needs. It is important for you and your Michigan family to secure workers' compensation benefits as soon as possible. 

Who covers a work-related car accident?

If you drive a car for work, or you run an errand for your employer, in Michigan and you are in a car accident, who pays for the expenses? It depends on a variety of factors, such as who the at-fault party is and if the company owns the vehicle. If you experience injuries due to the accident, you may receive compensation in a number of ways.
