Have you been injured on the job? Has your injury lead to high medical bills, lost income, or left you disabled and unable to work?
An on-the-job injury or illness may qualify you for Workers’ Compensation. An injury leaving you disabled and unable to work could also qualify you for SSDI. Unfortunately, the process of applying for SSDI and Worker’s Compensation can be time-consuming and difficult, and many people have their initial claim denied, leading to frustration and a difficult financial situation.
The law offices of Bruce Weider have been successfully helping those who have suffered an injury in the workplace receive the compensation they deserve for over 25 years. With an incredible track record of success, we’ve helped hundreds secure their financial future.

You have the right to an attorney. Filing workers’ compensation benefits can be difficult. The legal process is complex, requiring an in-depth knowledge of the law. Hiring an attorney to help you apply for workers’ compensation after an on-the-job injury can help ensure that you receive the maximum benefits allotted by Michigan law.
What Health Services are Covered by Worker's Compensation?
The Workers’ Compensation system may be responsible for paying reasonable medical care, including your doctor, hospital, surgical, pharmacy, and other health care services. These services are provided until your work-related injury has stabilized and reached a point where further recovery is not expected.
Have You Been Denied Health Benefits?
If you are wrongly denied Worker's Compensation benefits, The Bruce Weider Law Firm will file a claim and get you the benefits you deserve. You are entitled to lost wages – and we’re committed to doing whatever is necessary to recover those wages for our clients.
How Much Can I Expect to Get From Worker’s Compensation?
The amount of your lost wages check is 60-75 percent of your total wages and certain benefits, depending on your marital status and number of dependent children you have when you are injured. If you can work, but your earning capacity has been reduced, you are entitled to "loss of earning power" benefits. Wage loss benefits must be calculated using a complicated formula. Your receipt of other government benefits (such as Social Security) will also affect the amount of lost wages.
