Get Help With Your Workers' Compensation And Third-Party Liability Claims

Under Michigan workers' compensation law, you are entitled to medical benefits and financial compensation for your work-related injury, regardless of fault. Beyond workers' comp, you may also have grounds to sue third parties such as a property owner, subcontractor or manufacturer whose negligence contributed to a workplace accident.

We can explain your rights and explore all sources of compensation. The Bredell & Bredell law firm handles both workers' compensation claims and third-party lawsuits. Call our lawyers today for a free consultation.

We Also Handle Personal Injury Claims

You cannot sue your employer or co-worker for a workplace injury. However, if someone other than your employer shares liability for your injuries, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim in addition to any workers' compensation benefits you receive.

Our lawyers are skilled at identifying who was responsible for your accident and whether that person or entity is liable under the law. If that third party's actions or negligence was the sole cause or a contributing factor, we will seek to hold them accountable. A third-party action can supplement your employer-paid benefits. For example, you may be able to recover compensation for pain and suffering and other damages not covered under workers' compensation.
