Lost Wages

Compensation for Lost Wages in a Workers’ Comp Claim

Most people in Michigan who suffer a work-related injury and cannot work for at least eight days are entitled to weekly checks that replace a significant portion of wages lost. Michigan workers’ compensation law generally provides for prompt payments of 80 percent of your net (after-tax) wages — in addition to payment of medical expenses and the cost of necessary retraining so you can work again.

Many people need an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to get the benefits they deserve under the law. If you have been injured or diagnosed with a work-related illness, call us at +1-888-873-7173 for a free consultation focused on helping you recover and move forward.

  • Your employer or insurer’s demands that you return to work before you are able

Michigan lost wages claims are a frequent source of dispute between insurers and injured workers. All too often, workers and their families feel helpless to fight against savvy claims adjusters and other insurance company representatives — or they are intimidated by the prospect of a dispute with their employer. When a claim has been denied or benefits have been wrongfully stopped, we are often able to obtain a sizable lump-sum settlement.
