Under Michigan law, workers’ compensation wage loss benefits are 80% of the after-tax value of your average weekly wage.
There are some complicated features to calculating wage loss benefits. When a worker's weekly salary varies from week to week, wage loss benefits are based on the average of the 39 highest pay weeks in the last 52 weeks.
If an injured worker returns to work part-time, or at a lower-paying job, that individual still may be eligible for partial wage loss benefits, to cover part of the difference between the amount he or she earned before and after the work-related injury.
These formulas can be very confusing. Contact an attorney, if you have questions about whether you are getting the amount of wage loss benefits that the law requires.
If you or a loved one has suffered a workplace injury, it is important to talk with a Michigan workers' compensation lawyer with experience in Michigan worker's compensation law. Please submit a simple, free and confidential legal consultation form now.
