Workers' Compensation Recoveries:
  • Understanding Workers’ Compensation - In the early industrial era, workers who suffered injury in the factories, mines, or farms were just cast aside by callous employers. Charitable institutions were overwhelmed by the number of disabled workers, and when workers tried to get compensation for their injuries they found the courts were unsympathetic and the standards of proof too high. In addition, the process took too long, with cases languishing in the courts as the injured worker and his family teetered on the brink of starvation. Workers’ rights advocates and labor unions worked hard to achieve a better solution, and the compromise worked out was workers’ compensation. The goal of workers’ compensation is to ensure that every person injured on the job will be taken care of without having to fight their way through the courts. In exchange for this security, employees generally give up the right to sue employers for punitive damages and other compensation, although some states, including Michigan, allow employees to sue an employer if the employer deliberately took an action intended to injure a worker. Workers’ compensation benefits generally include all medical care related to the workplace injury, some fraction of the worker’s pre-accident salary, and a guarantee of light duty if such work is available. A worker is limited, however, in the doctors he or she can see, and must take light duty as offered. If you have additional questions about workers compensation, our attorneys can answer them. Please contact Jay Trucks & Associates, helping Michigan workers with workers’ compensation, discrimination, and other employment law questions.

  • How to Choose Workers Compensation Attorneys - If you have been hurt on the job, you may be able to get replacement of your wages and coverage for medical bills through workers’ compensation. However, if you are having difficulty filing your claim, have had your claim rejected by an employer, or do not feel you’re being treated according to the workers’ compensation laws, you might be considering how workers compensation attorneys can help you. If you are looking to hire a workers’ compensation attorney, here are a few tips for finding the right one for you. First, talk to friends, relatives, or coworkers who might have used the help of a workers’ compensation attorney. They may recommend their attorneys if they had good experiences. Next, talk to your treating doctors as well as your regular doctor about workers’ compensation attorneys. Doctors who provide treatment for workers’ compensation patients often do it a lot and may be familiar with good attorneys in the area. Be aware, though, that these doctors are often chosen by insurance companies because they are not exactly sympathetic to injury victims, so scrutinize these recommendations carefully. Go online and see if you can find workers’ compensation attorneys in your area. A simple internet search will likely bring up quite a few. Select a firm that seems to emphasize workers’ compensation and promote workers’ rights. A dedicated firm will likely be more determined to give you the best possible results. Once you’ve narrowed your list to a few promising candidates, start scheduling consultations. Make sure you find a lawyer who you can trust.
