Workman’s Comp Settlement in Birmingham, MI
In simple terms, a Workman’s Comp Settlement is when an employer provides benefits to employees after they’ve been injured while performing their job duties in lieu of accepting an offer made by their insurance company. If you’ve experienced an occupational injury, you may be able to pursue a Workman’s Comp Settlement. The first step is making a Worker’s Comp Claim.
Workers’ Comp Claims
A Workers’ Comp Claim is how you invoice your employer while pursuing a Workman’s Comp Settlement. Your Workers’ Comp Claim may include items like coverage for any medical expenses, disability payments to cover your time out of the workplace, and the wages you missed following your occupational injury. Payments may begin after your claim has been accepted by your employer’s insurance company. Employees sometimes also have the opportunity to pursue a larger monetary sum in the event they’re not satisfied with their employer’s insurance company’s offer.
In the state of Michigan, nearly all public and private employers are included under the Workers’ Disability Compensation Act, with rare exceptions. One notable exception includes farm workers. However, it’s best to double check: some agricultural employers voluntarily cover its workers. Another area where it might be best to double check is if you work for a small business. Under Michigan law, certain small businesses are exempt from offering Workman’s Compensation.
