Q. Does our justice system convict people fasley even when they know there innocent
A: Though our American justice system is the envy of the world, it sometimes happens that innocent people are wrongly convicted. Erroneous convictions are inevitable because people weigh the evidence and people make the decisions. In recognition of the fact that no human system is ever perfect, the law grants us numerous avenues for post conviction review. In Michigan a convicted felon may file various post conviction motions in the trial court. Moreover, the defendant may appeal to the Michigan Court of Appeals and then to the Michigan Supreme Court. In some cases, the wrongly accused may also access up to 4 additional levels of appellate review in the federal courts, as well.
Q. Workplace back injury 9 years ago. Been through rehab, 2 surgeries since. Company now bankrupt- can I still seek comp?
A: Generally, workers compensation benefits are paid by an insurance company (self funding is a possibility, but there are legal safeguards in that scenario as well). Accordingly, even if the company for which you worked declared bankruptcy, if your condition and circumstances warrant payment, then the insurance carrier may be required to cover you.
Q. I was injured on my job and was awarded WC and SSDI. My employer' s actions caused me to develop RSD/CRPS. How can I sue
A: If your injury arose out of and in the course of your job, and you were covered by workers compensation insurance, and no "third-party" outsider (a person not working for or partnering with your employer) contributed to your injury, then workers compensation is the exclusive remedy.
