Workplace accidents are all too common and can happen suddenly without any warning in workplaces all over Michigan. In the case of wrongful death, families deserve compensation for estate planning during the loss of a loved one, and an experienced law firm like Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., can help.
Serving Livonia MI, our team of Workplace Injury Lawyer in Livonia understands the stress of dealing with injury claims and can lighten the load for you. If you’ve experienced an injury on the job, contact a Workplace Injury Lawyer in Livonia to review your case and ensure you get the compensation you’re entitled to.
If you are injured on the job, notify your employer and supervisor, and note the incident’s time and date. If your employer doesn’t complete a formal accident report detailing the experience, you should fill one out yourself. You only have 90 days to inform your employer of the accident. Exclusively oral notification is not reliable enough to support your injury claims in court, should it come to that.
Next, you’ll want to file for workers’ compensation benefits, which can provide you with coverage for lost wages, medical treatments, and in some cases, unique benefits for employees who become permanently disabled.
Finally, once you have completed the first two steps, you should seek representation from a reputable law office familiar with this area of law, particularly with experience handling injury cases. Having a workers’ compensation lawyer on your side to advise you throughout the process is essential because employers and insurance companies might not be acting in your best interest.
Your lawyer can help you understand the laws surrounding workers’ compensation. Your employer could dispute your claim, and you might lose your job if the situation isn’t handled the right way. A lawyer can ensure that you are protected from losing your job or being treated differently at work for filing a workers’ compensation claim.
At Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., we have years of experience in this law area. Our team is proud to be serving all of Michigan, handling cases revolving around medical malpractice, dog bites, car accidents and personal injury claims, and more.
Eileen Kroll, our senior partner, and a registered nurse can help ensure you receive adequate compensation that you might be entitled to.
