Understanding Workers' Compensation

No one plans to get injured while on the job, but when injuries do occur, workers need an advocate who can steer them through what can seem like a complex legal system. The Willig, Williams & Davidson workers' compensation attorneys utilize the firm's wide-ranging union-side practice to help further the cause of providing safe working conditions and fair benefits for injured workers.

Unlike some other firms, our attorneys are uniquely suited to understand the complex interplay between workers' compensation law and other employment rights, such as union benefits, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Act 534, and the Heart & Lung Act. Our attorneys use that knowledge to look beyond the workers' compensation law and make sure that our clients' rights are fully protected.
