Detroit Workers' Compensation Lawyers
When you've been hurt on the job and are unable to work, the last thing you need is to battle the insurance company to get your medical bills paid and your wages reimbursed. At Miller Cohen, PLC, we understand the stress placed on injured workers and their families when a claim is denied.
Qualifying for and receiving workers' compensation benefits can be complicated. Companies and insurers have a financial incentive to deny valid claims and force workers into rehabilitation programs that do not equip them to return to gainful employment.
The workers' compensation lawyers at Miller Cohen, PLC have the medical and investigative resources to challenge the denial of your workers' compensation claim. With more than forty years of experience and numerous trials, we understand how to take on insurance companies and win. If your workers' compensation claim has been denied, call us at 313-566-4787 or 800-221-6021 for a free case evaluation.
