Bad Axe Workers’ Compensation Claims
In a perfect world, an injured employee would file a workers’ compensation claim, the insurance carrier would review the claim and the medical records, and fair compensation would be paid promptly, without conflict. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation insurers are like any other insurance company: private companies in the business of making money by collecting more money than they pay out. The more they pay out to injured workers and their medical providers, the less profit they make. Sometimes, that means that injured workers have to fight for the compensation they deserve.
An Experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorney Can Help
Working with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer offers many benefits. For example:
- Ensuring that you don’t miss important deadlines or procedural requirements
- Putting a buffer between you and insurance company representatives
- Helping to establish the true value of your claim
- Identifying other possible responsible parties
When you’re under stress, in pain, and working to recover from an injury, you don’t need the added stress of a legal battle. A veteran workers’ compensation attorney like Timothy S. Burns can carry that burden for you, so that you can focus on healing and regaining your strength.

Bad Axe Third-Party Work Injury Claims
While workers’ compensation covers most Michigan work injuries, it may not be the only option. Although an injured employee generally cannot file a lawsuit against his or her employer, sometimes a third party is responsible for the injury. For example, a landscaper who is struck by a falling object while working on grounds owned by his employer will generally be entitled to workers’ compensation. But, if the falling object was dropped by a construction worker who was working on the adjacent building, the injured landscaper may also have a personal injury claim against the construction company.
Identifying this type of third-party claim often allows an injured worker to pursue compensation for damages not covered by workers’ compensation, and so to increase the total amount of compensation available.
Motor Vehicle Accidents in Bad Axe
Though Huron County is small, Michigan Traffic Crash Reporting System data reveals that there were more than 1,500 motor vehicle accidents in the county in 2016. These accidents resulted in 225 injuries and seven deaths.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident or motorcycle accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Each motor vehicle accident case is different, depending on factors such as:
- The allocation of fault
- The seriousness of your injuries
- Economic factors, such as lost earnings projections
- Any property damage sustained
However, people injured in motor vehicle accidents through the fault of another person or entity often recover:
- The cost of medical treatment
- Costs of rehabilitation
- Pain and suffering and other intangibles
- Compensation for property damage
