Michigan Workers’ Compensation Law
The Michigan Workers’ Disability Compensation Act was devised to protect employers and workers alike, offering benefits to both parties. Today, however, the Workers’ Compensation Policies and Procedures that govern this act have become very complicated.
If you have a work-sustained injury, you already have enough to contend with. Don’t let complex processes hold you back from claiming the compensation you are owed as a Michigan-based employee.
Do you have a right to claim?
Know your rights to claim under the Workers’ Disability Compensation Act. If you have sustained a work-related injury, your employer has a duty to:
- Pay wage replacement benefits,
- Pay for medical care,
- Pay for your rehabilitation.
We will help you from the onset, guiding you through the policies and procedures of this act. We take our time to understand each case individually, so we can best protect the compensation rights you are lawfully owed.
Please note, the law does not cover:
- Federal government employees,
- Employees of interstate railroads,
- Seamen working on navigable waters,
- Workers who load or unload vessels.
Workers under these categories are covered by various federal laws.
I am self-employed. Can I claim compensation?
No. Self-employed indicates that you are the business owner and not the employee. As the business owner, you are not entitled to claim compensation under the Workers’ Disability Compensation Act.
