Michigan Permanent Disability Attorneys
When you or someone you love has suffered a permanent disability in a workplace accident, you need professional advice to help make sure that you get access to the full benefits and compensation that your family may depend on for decades to come. Without talking to an attorney, you may get only a fraction of the benefits you are eligible to receive, particularly if another person or company besides your employer shares any liability in the accident.
At the law offices of Bredell & Bredell in Ypsilanti and Jackson, our personal injury and workers’ compensation attorneys help you take the right action to protect yourself and your family. We know that when facing a permanent disability, your family may be facing costly medical expenses, lifetime care needs and a career of lost wages. We work to help you recover those financial damages.
An Experienced Michigan Permanent Disability Lawyer
People are sometimes shocked to realize that Michigan laws protect employers from lawsuits and liability beyond workers’ compensation benefits in a workplace accident, even if the accident was the employer’s fault. This means that even if your employer acted negligently and you suffered a permanent disability, you cannot sue your employer.
This is why it’s so important to speak with our attorneys. We cannot only make sure you are applying for full workers’ compensation benefits, but we can also evaluate your accident and find out if any other parties are liable for your injuries. This can include:
- Trucking accidents caused by other drivers
- Industrial accidents caused by a defective safety product
- Construction accidents caused by independent contractors or unsafe property
- Loading dock accidents caused by unsafe delivery drivers
In cases such as these and countless others, it’s important to have an experienced lawyer who can pursue third-party personal injury claims in tandem with your workers’ compensation claim. By identifying all parties responsible for the accident, we may be able to expand your compensation options so that you get the full support you will need for years and decades to come.
