Check www.workerscompensation.com and this may help. The Michigan statute is listed there and it will address the settlements allowable in the state. If your are interested in settling the medical I would suggest you request a future medical needs assessment from your doctor to include a treatment plan and cost of same. It is true that the insurance company is not likely to settle for 100% of this but it is possible to gey more than 30 cents on the dollar. Remember no insurance carrier can force an injured employee to settle. The decision is always yours.
