General Questions and Answers:

Michigan Workers Compensation Settlement, The Basics

How is a workers' compensation settlement determined?

In most cases, the medical records must be reviewed by your attorney, along with a review of your work experience, education, and training. Your average weekly wage must be determined along with the workers' compensation rate to determine if the insurance company is paying you enough per week. Generally, your weekly rate is calculated into a yearly rate and a settlement is negotiated with the claims adjuster. Additional monies for attendant care, future medical, and other contingencies must be calculated in. Our firm has nearly 30 years of workers' compensation expertise to get you much more than you can negotiate on your own. Don't take the claims adjuster's word that they are offering you a fair deal.

Does a workers'comp settlement affect social security benefits?

Yes, if you are being paid workers' compensation benefits and receive a SSD award, your SSD benefits will usually be reduced. Therefore, many settle workers' compensation cases with a lump sum settlement so that they can maximize their SSD benefits. Often times, you will be trading dollars and a workers' compensation settlement helps to maximize your wealth and payments.

Is a workers' comp settlement taxable?

No, it is not taxable. It is paid in after tax dollars. The only exception is adjusted gross income in rare circumstances. Your tax advisor can advise you if you fall into this rare exception.
