Can I Get Pain And Suffering Damages In A Michigan Workers' Compensation Case?

In most cases, a claim under the Workers' Disability Compensation Act is considered to be the injured workers’ "exclusive remedy" against their employer. This means that the individual injured at work can only receive workers' compensation benefits and cannot sue for other damages.

There are some exceptions to this rule, including civil rights claims, violation of labor laws, and other type claims.

If the employer knew that an injury was certain to occur it may give basis to a personal injury type claim. 

There may also be claims against other parties liable for the injury, like product manufacturers, and it may be possible to file a personal injury lawsuit in addition to a workers’ compensation claim.
