Employees have the right to safe working environment

Michigan is home to some industries that have above-average rates of occupational injuries, such as construction, manufacturing and transportation. It may seem that individuals who choose to work in such industries generally accept a higher risk of sustaining an injury on the job. However, both state and federal laws require employers to provide a safe working environment for their employees.

Understanding SSDI requirements for spinal cord injuries

Being unable to work at your Michigan job due to a back injury is often extremely stressful and frustrating, especially when a doctor tells you it may take months or years to recover. Depending on the exact nature of your condition, you may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance, which helps cover your living costs until you return to work. The Social Security Administration has strict requirements you must meet to be eligible for SSDI payments. At Adler Firm, PLLC, we understand the SSDI requirements and have helped many clients obtain benefits for back and spinal cord injuries.

SSDI benefits and self-employment

Some Michigan residents rely on Social Security Disability Insurance benefits in order to pay bills after becoming ill or injured and losing the ability to work. However, if an individual's health improves, he or she may return to work. The Social Security Administration provides guides and additional resources to help beneficiaries return to the workforce, but things may be more complicated for individuals who are self-employed.

What's your next step if your disability claim comes back denied?

Disabled individuals in Michigan may be able to claim financial benefits through a claim with the Social Security Administration. If you filed a claim, it is because you have a medical condition that prevents you from earning a gainful income and holding steady employment. Even with a valid disabling physical or mental condition, it can be quite difficult to secure benefits.

The collapse and explosion of mines are dangerous for miners

When many Americans think of mining in the U.S., the silver and gold rush of out west come to mind. It is true that much of America’s mining took place in the west, but Michigan experienced its own mining boom too. According to MLive, Michigan’s worst mining disaster took place in 1926. An explosion reportedly caused mud, quicksand and water to flood the underground tunnels that went down to 1,060 feet below.
