Michigan Contemplates Major Overhaul of Workers' Comp Laws


Warner attorney Geri Drozdowski said that pending legislation in the Michigan Senate could mean big changes for the state's workers' comp laws, marketing the first major overhaul in 25 years. Drozdowski said that one of the major areas of change is to the definition of "wage-earning capacity," which could add an extra burden of proof to injured employees and cause "legal hurdles that lawyers who represent injured workers will have to clear." Other changes shift medical timelines for treating injured workers and makes it easier for those injured to complete the workers' comp settlement process.
