The Cromer Law Group PLLC: When injured on the job, regardless of who is at fault, a worker is entitled to several benefits, such as reasonable medical treatment, disability pay, and compensation for his or her injuries. Your employer is required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance. When your employer refuses to properly recognize your work place injury or delays in processing your claim – you need to seek the best advise possible from an experienced workers compensation lawyer to protect your rights.
Often, individuals hurt at the job, also have a case against a third-party, along with his or her workers’ compensation claim. For example, a delivery driver injured in an auto accident may have a workers’ compensation claim and may also have a separate case against the at fault third-party driver who caused the accident.
Remember, even if you were at fault in a work related accident, you are still entitled to recover for your injuries in many cases. The Michigan Workers’ Compensation Act allows workers to recover for their injuries regardless of fault. Don’t hesitate to call us just because you believe you caused your work related accident. The call is FREE.
Clients should note that there are many obstacles and pitfalls to a work injury claim. Some common issues that arise:
- The insurance carrier denies or blocks some or all of your medical treatment;
- You have not received temporary total disability pay, while off work recovering; or
- The insurance carrier or employer claims that your injury wasn’t work related.
Another difficult issue is determining what your injury is worth and the appropriate amount for which to settle. An insurance carrier could offer you money and you would have no clue if the amount being offered is fair. Moreover, the settlement you are entitled to could consist of permanent partial disability, permanent total disability, a wage loss differential, and/or vocational training. Sometimes, injured workers who don’t contact a personal injury lawyer, never even realize that they are entitled to a settlement and they never receive the benefits beyond getting their medical bills paid.
