If a worker has an accident on the job, workers' compensation will pay for their medical expenses and compensate them for a percentage of their lost income. It is not always evident if the worker's employment was to blame for an injury, especially when it comes to injuries such as those caused by violence.
What Is Workplace Violence?
Violence in the workplace is defined as any act or risk of violence, assault, coercion, or any other inclination to throw behavior in the workplace.
When Is Violence Work-Related?
Victims of violence at the job, such as those sustained by law enforcement officials, are sure to be eligible for workers' compensation.
Michigan Work Injury Law
Injured employees in Michigan are protected regardless of who is to blame. Workers' compensation pays for all medical expenses and lost wages. In exchange, the employer is shielded from legal lawsuits, and an employee must be at work for work injury compensation to apply.
Intentional Tort Lawsuits With Acts Of Violence Cases
Workers' compensation in Michigan includes workplace violence resulting from an employee's job, but physical aggression may also be considered an intentional tort in some instances. Workers' compensation may not apply if the employer commits violent behavior.
Obtaining workers' compensation benefits requires comprehensive documentation that your injuries were caused by violent conduct at work. If you want to get the workers' compensation payments you're entitled to; you'll need to contact a workers' compensation expert.
