Industrial injuries and workers' compensation benefits

One of the first questions many Michigan employees ask after being injured is whether they can sue their employer.

While these benefits should theoretically be adequate under any circumstances, it is not hard to imagine how the effects of a significant industrial injury may be more severe than some insurance policy is willing to pay.
