If you suffered a torn labrum at work in Detroit, then you may have a case for Workers’ Compensation benefits from your employer. This will help you with paying your medical bills and supporting your family if you can’t earn your normal income because you can’t go back to work.

Workers’ Comp benefits will also help you get access to and pay for vocational rehabilitation which will help you restore your ability to perform your duties and tasks at your job.

An experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney can help you maximize the amount of your settlement and ensure that you receive all of the medical and wage loss benefits you are legally entitled to.

Michigan doesn’t keep specific data about the average workers’ comp settlement for a torn labrum, but statistics published by the Workers’ Disability Compensation Agency show that $62,315.56 is the average amount paid out for a work-related injury.

A torn labrum can be caused by blunt force trauma or overuse.

Surgery and physical therapy are common treatments.
