Have you been injured as a result of an on-the-job injury where you were injured or assaulted by aÂ co-employee, your boss, or an outside vendor? Many times people who have been injured as a result of serious injuries or assaults at work are told by attorneys that your only avenue for compensation is the Michigan Workers Compensation Act because your injury â€œarose out of and in the course of your employmentâ€.
We successfully have sued and provided compensation to a woman who was sexually assaulted by a co-worker on-the-job.Â When the employer was sued they argued that the Michigan Workers Compensation Act exclusive remedy provision precludes suits against the employer that â€œarise out of and in the course of employmentâ€.
We have successfully argued and presented case law to the Courts showing that even though an injury may have occurred at work, it did not â€œarise out of and in the course of employmentâ€.
