We Protect The Rights Of Injured Workers
If your claim was denied, our attorneys can review your application and determine the reason for the denial. The issue can often be resolved by submitting the correct information and medical reports. Because we have extensive workers’ comp experience, we know what the Michigan Workers’ Disability Compensation Agency (WDCA) wants to see.
In some cases, it makes more sense to file for mediation than a hearing. We can advise you on the risks and benefits of each option.
Applications for mediation and hearings are filed with the Michigan WDCA. The WDCA handles all disputed workers’ compensation claims. If your claim cannot be resolved via mediation or hearing, you may continue to pursue it. You can appeal the magistrate’s decision to the Workers’ Disability Compensation Appeals Commission. The Commission’s decision may be appealed to the Michigan Court of Appeals and subsequently to the Michigan Supreme Court, though it is fairly unusual for cases to proceed this far.
