Experienced Workplace Injury Lawyers
There are countless situations where an employee who has been hurt on the job may also have a valid personal injury and civil third-party claim to pursue. Our experienced trial attorneys can help you not only address your workers’ compensation rights, but also address any third-party claims, which can be used to supplement your workers’ comp benefits and add to your overall compensation.
Situations where there are civil as well as workers’ benefits to pursue can include:
- A truck driver involved in a car accident caused by another driver
- A construction worker where an independent contractor creates a * hazardous situation
- An industrial worker harmed by machinery with a production or design defect
- A loading dock worker who is injured by a delivery truck operated by another company
- An electrician involved in an electrical accident due to a property owner’s negligence
Exclusive remedy provisions of Michigan law protect most employers from being sued by an employee for additional damages above and beyond workers’ compensation except in very specific and uncommon conditions. This means that it is very important to fully explore all options for recovery when you have suffered an injury at work.
With more than 30 years of proven success and a record of verdicts and settlements in favor of our clients, our attorneys at Bredell & Bredell can help you get the results you need.
