Michigan Workers’ Compensation Cases
If you have been injured in the workplace or while performing your work duties, you may be eligible for the following:
- Medical benefits
- Wage loss payments while unable to work
- General expenses
- Vocational training
State law follows a precise formula for calculating the amount of your wage loss benefits. Most employees are covered under state law. However, you will not be eligible for benefits if your injuries were self-inflicted, incurred while engaging in some illegal activity, or incurred when you were not working.
Damages are generally available for all types of injuries, including construction, industrial, factory, heavy equipment, and other injuries sustained while working. These can include major and minor injuries, such as back, hip, knee, wrist, ankle, shoulder, leg, neck, and brain injuries, cuts, tears, burns, repetitive stress injuries, carpal tunnel, hearing and sight loss, and more.
When injured at work, you should immediately inform your supervisor, complete an accident report, and contact Tanis Schultz with any questions or concerns. If you need to determine whether you have a valid claim, our firm is here to advise you and take any steps needed to pursue the compensation you deserve under state law.
