Workers’ Compensation and Michigan Law
Michigan adopted its Workers’ Compensation Act in 1912. This law applies to all government employees and private employees with 3 or more workers. Under the law, a person who suffers an injury while performing work duties is entitled to compensation for:
- Medical treatments related to the injury
- Wages lost due to missed work
- Rehabilitation services
There are also benefits available to families who have lost loved ones in tragic workplace accidents. These benefits are intended to cover medical bills, funeral expenses, and some of the wages that the worker would have earned.
Unfortunately, receiving the benefits you need is not always easy. Some injured workers are only offered some of the benefits they need to recover, while others are denied benefits entirely. If you are facing unreasonable delays in settling your workers’ compensation case, you may need an experienced lawyer to help you fight back.
