Workplace injuries can be a major source of stress for American families, especially if the main breadwinner suffers a loss of wages. If you have experienced a work-related injury in Flint, Michigan, you need to talk to a Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in Flint at our law office as soon as possible to make sure you get the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve.
Workers’ compensation can provide up to 80% of your weekly lost wages, plus compensation for your medical bills and up to 104 weeks of vocational rehabilitation. Your ability to provide for your family may hinge on these benefits, so get a good legal team on your side as soon as possible to make sure you can win your case.
Sudden injuries may stem from accidents like slips and falls but are sometimes the result of lifting heavy objects or other sources of strain. Psychological conditions that are directly caused by your job may also qualify.
Long-term injuries like repetitive motion injuries may qualify as well. These types of injuries are harder to prove, but an expert workers’ compensation attorney can help you build your case.
Not all injuries are visible, so it’s important for you to seek medical care and get x-rays and other scans as soon as possible. You will also need expert witnesses to testify in your case. Fortunately, your attorney can arrange the best expert witnesses possible.
There is a 2-year statute of limitations on workers’ compensation claims in Michigan. This means that claims must be filed within two years of your injury or of your condition’s diagnosis. However, there is an exception for cases where you should have known that your injury was work-related but chose not to seek treatment or diagnosis sooner.
Because of these limitations, it’s important to seek help from a local workers’ compensation lawyer. An attorney who specializes in workers’ compensation cases will know how to gather all the necessary documentation and win the benefits you deserve, especially if you are appealing a denied claim.
