Flint Lost Wages Lawyer
Serving Clients Throughout The State of Michigan
Workers injured on the job in Michigan are entitled to turn to the state’s workers’ compensation insurance system to recover money for wages and earnings lost while recovering from their injuries or disability. Under the law, a worker who is classified for disability may seek wage benefits equal to two-thirds of his or her average weekly wages (AWW).* Workers who are able to return to limited work at reduced wages may be eligible for differential wage loss benefits to make up the difference between prior AWW and the reduced amount earned.
If you need help recovering lost wages through the Michigan workers’ compensation system, or if you have had your lost wage benefits reduced because of reclassification, call Burns Law. I have nearly 20 years of experience helping injured workers navigate the complicated waters of workers’ compensation benefits.

*Benefits are paid at roughly 60 percent of your average weekly wage, determined by looking back at the highest 39 of the previous 52 weeks you have worked. In 2012, the wage benefit was capped at $774, which is 90 percent of the state’s average weekly wage.
