It handles all types of personal injury accident cases throughout the entire state, including Michigan car accidents, motorcycle accidents, dog bite and attack injuries, medical malpractice, and nursing home neglect.
Since 1912, Michigan’s injured workers and their employers have been governed by the Worker’s Disability Compensation Act. The Act not only provides compensation to workers who suffer an injury on the job but also sets a cap on the amount an employee can recover.
Workers compensation for an employee can include wage replacement, medical expenses and rehabilitation benefits. Regardless of who is at fault for the cause of an injury on the job, workers are still entitled to compensation. Claims are made against the employer, however it is the insurance company that typically pays the required benefits.
If an employee gets injured on the job, it is important that they report all work injuries to their employer as soon as possible so that there is no question as to how the injury occurred.
“Although the workers’ compensation system was designed to help the injured worker, the fact is that many employers and insurance companies dispute claims and refuse to pay benefits. Workers may have had their benefits cut off, or terminated, by a company doctor or insurance medical examiner even though they are still disabled and in need of treatment. This is very unfair to the hard working employee and that is why our firm is happy to announce that Workers Compensation has been added to our website as a practice area,” says owner and attorney Lawrence Buckfire.
