Workers’ compensation, sometimes referred to as “workers’ comp,” is the name given to a system of laws meant to protect injured workers. Laws passed by the state require that your employer, or your employer\’s insurance company, compensate you or your family for injuries or death that may occur while you are working.
Under Michigan law, you may be entitled to:
Employees injured on the job and denied workers comp may be entitled to file a lawsuit to collect compensation. Goodman Acker P.C. can help you if you need workers’ compensation after being injured on the job. Just like the many other hard-working individuals we have helped take action to recover compensation, we can also help you get the payments you have earned and deserve.
