by | Sep 18, 2023 | Car Accidents, Personal Injury | 0 comments

Walker, MI (September 18, 2023) – After being trapped underneath a front-end loader in Walker, a worker was brought to the hospital in a severe condition for treatment.

According to officers with the Walker Police Department, the incident took place on Monday afternoon, September 18, at an unknown worksite.

Detectives are still working to discover the cause of the incident and have not said whether the man was struck by the vehicle or injured by another worker at the scene.

WPD officers have requested witness statements to aid their investigation. It’s also unclear if OSHA responded to the scene.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his loved ones. We hope for his full recovery at this time.

Workplace Accidents in Michigan

Walker, MI - Worker Trapped, Hospitalized in Front-End Loader AccidentSeveral Michigan workers who sustain workplace injuries are eligible for compensation, including medical costs and 80% of their typical weekly earnings. The purpose of workers’ compensation is twofold: to shield companies against lawsuits brought by injured workers and to compensate those workers monetarily for their losses. Workers’ compensation benefits can help make up for things like missed pay, medical bills, and rehabilitation services. Furthermore, claims are available to family members of workers who have died on the job.

The state of Michigan mandates that all public and private sector businesses have workers’ compensation insurance, often with the following stipulations:

  • Employers routinely use shifts of three or more employees.
  • They have also had at least one employee for the previous 52 weeks who has consistently worked 35 or more hours per week for 13 weeks or longer.

Sadly, things are rarely that easy. Even the simplest claims may become complicated and time-consuming when third-party claims adjustors, insurance companies, or law-bending employers are thrown into the mix.

So, if you are hurt on the job and are rendered incapacitated as a result, you may be eligible for workers’ comp. That said, these claims aren’t always simple or straightforward, even when your circumstances make you a clear candidate for recompense. To safeguard your interests, you should choose an attorney with experience in workers’ compensation law. Self-representing yourself in a Michigan workers’ compensation lawsuit may seem like a good idea at the time, but it might end up costing you more in the end.
