Workers Compensation Program in Sterling Heights, MI
Getting injured on the job is a risk many people take each day just to work. No matter what job you do, whether the risk of injury is great or small, you can still get hurt. Once that happens, know your rights and know that you don’t have to deal with it alone.
What to expect from the Workers’ Compensation Program
In Michigan, The Workers’ Disability Compensation Act is a law stipulating that all employees are covered by their employers for wage replacement benefits, the cost of medical care, and rehabilitation for sustained work-related injuries.
By law, employers in Michigan are covered if they have three or more employees at any given time or they employ at least one person for 35 hours or more per week for a minimum of 13 weeks. For those who are self-employed, employees may be covered, but the business owner is not.
If you are injured on the job, whether or not you believe you are covered under Michigan law to receive benefits from the Workers’ Compensation Program, consult with an attorney immediately to discuss your rights.
An attorney is imperative to help lead you through a process that, over the years, has been made exceedingly complicated to receive your benefits. Going through the process without the guidance of a Workers’ Compensation attorney can result in the loss of benefits when insurance companies are unwilling to cooperate and pay you what is rightfully and legally yours.
