I am receiving worker's compensation benefits now, do I need an attorney? - Grand Rapids Worker's Compensation Attorney

Please remember that significant benefits can be lost if you do not file a case within one or two years of injury. If you were paid workers compensation in prior years, you can collect benefits retroactively going back one year from the time you filed your claim. If you were never paid any workers compensation benefits, you can go back two years.

You can always claim future workers compensation benefits.

Redemption of Worker's Compensation Benefits - Grand Rapids Worker's Compensation Attorney

Often times, the insurance company and the employer will offer to redeem your worker’s compensation benefits. When you redeem your benefits, you are paid a lump sum rather than payments every month. This closes your case. If you decide to redeem your benefits, the redemption (or settlement) must be approved by a magistrate at a redemption hearing. The magistrate will be given a brief explanation as to why the case is being redeemed or settled. The magistrate will also review your rights and want to make sure that you understand what benefits are being given up as part of the settlement.

If you have questions about redeeming your benefits or a redemption of your worker’s compensation, please call us, we can help you with the decision and process.
