Workers’ Compensation for Injured Construction Workers
Construction work has been one of the most dangerous occupations for many years. Even as technology becomes more reliable and safety measures improve on construction sites, this line of work still remains dangerous for workers.
When construction workers suffer work-related injuries that prevent or minimize their ability to work, Michigan workers’ compensation law entitles them to receive benefits.
If you have been hurt on a construction site, workers’ compensation could help you provide for your family, cover the costs of medical expenses and help you receive the vocational rehabilitation you need to get back into the workforce.
Although the law entitles you to these benefits, they are not always easy to obtain. The process is long and complicated. At the Adler Firm, PLLC, we can help you obtain the benefits you need. With more than 30 years of experience representing injured workers in Detroit and across Michigan, our construction accident lawyers know the workers’ compensation process and how to settle your workers’ compensation case so that you get the best possible financial benefits for your injuries.

Do You Have a Third-Party Liability Claim? If So You Could Receive Increased Benefits for Your Injuries.
Workers’ compensation is available to injured workers regardless of who is responsible for causing the injury. If a third-party is in some way responsible for the accident that caused your injuries, we can bring a separate personal injury claim against that third party — called a third-party liability claim — to increase your overall financial award.
At the Adler Firm, PLLC, our attorneys are committed to helping injured construction workers obtain full compensation for work-related injuries. We will bring a third-party liability claim on your behalf to get you the money you need.
