Workers Comp Attorney Settlement in Birmingham, MI
We spend so much time at work, but what happens if you get injured while on the job? Sure, you thought it would never happen to you, nobody ever expects it. While an injury on the job can be catastrophic for you and your family, you should take comfort in the fact that Worker’s Compensation is in place to protect you in the aftermath of such an event.
How does Workers Compensation work?
In the state of Michigan, the Workers’ Disability Compensation Act was passed in 1912 in order to protect the rights of the injured worker and to provide compensation for the work-related injury, but it also protects the rights of the employer and serves as a shield from vicious lawsuits. Once you’re hurt on the job, you need to notify your employer and reach out to your legal team to ensure you receive proper compensation and fair treatment under the Workers’ Compensation Act.
Who are you going to call for help?
While the state of Michigan has worked to create a safe environment for employees to report an injury, it is still crucial to report the situation to a legal team in order to receive your full compensation. According to the Michigan Workers’ Compensation Agency, your employer has a short time period to file a claim and begin providing workers’ benefits for you after you’ve been hurt on the job.
However, if your employer doesn’t file the claim within that window of time, it’s up to you as the employee to file a claim with the Workers’ Compensation Agency. This process can transform quickly from a doctor’s visit and a couple of forms filled out to a full out dispute through the Agency in order to claim full benefits.
