Compensation in Personal Injury Cases
A serious accident or traumatic event can leave you suffering severe physical pain, immense emotional trauma, and significant financial hardships. The purpose of a personal injury claim is to allow you to seek financial compensation from the at-fault party to help with the monetary and intangible costs associated with your damages.
Although every case is different, and the exact compensation you may be able to recover will depend on the specifics of your situation, many people are able to recover the following damages:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost income and/or wages
- Future lost earnings and lost earning ability
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
In cases involving wrongful death, eligible surviving family members and dependents may be able to recover compensation for:
- Reasonable and necessary medical expenses
- Funeral and/or burial costs
- Lost income, wages, and other benefits the decedent would have earned
- Pain and suffering experienced by the decedent
- Pain and suffering experienced by the family member related to the death
- Loss of companionship, support, counsel, guidance, love, etc.
- Property damage-related expenses
Our Romulus personal injury attorneys can help you determine which types of damages may be applicable in your case, as well as the potential value of your claim, during a free initial consultation. We are happy to answer your questions and address any concerns you may have.
When to File a Workers’ Compensation Claim
A severe injury or illness can put you out of work for weeks or even months. In some cases, you may be unable to return to your previous employment whatsoever. This can put you and your family under serious financial strain as medical bills and everyday expenses begin piling up while you are unable to earn a living.
To help employees who are injured on the job or who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses while carrying out any activities that benefit their employers, the state of Michigan requires nearly all employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system—meaning you do not need to prove that your employer or anyone else was negligent in order to file a claim.
You should file a workers’ compensation claim any time you suffer a work-related injury or occupational disease. If you are unable to work because of your injury or illness, workers’ compensation will provide wage replacement benefits based on a percentage of your average weekly wage. Workers’ compensation also pays for all reasonable and necessary medical expenses related to your occupational injury or illness, including copays, treatment expenses, medication costs, and more.
Workers’ compensation also pays for vocational rehabilitation, as well as specific loss benefits and total permanent disability benefits if you suffer a disabling injury or medical condition.
Regardless of the type of workplace accident, injury, or illness you have suffered, it is a good idea to investigate your legal options. You are likely covered by workers’ compensation and, therefore, eligible for benefits. We encourage you to reach out to our Romulus workers’ compensation lawyers today to learn more, including how our team can protect your rights.
