Florida Workers Compensation
Florida law requires that all employers (with a few exceptions) carry workers’ compensation insurance but this does not mean that injured workers will get the medical care and monetary compensation they are fully entitled to. Regardless of fault, under these policies, employees are compensated for medical expenses, disability or death that are the result of occupationally incurred injuries. A problem with this system is that there are often many other expenses and needs after a workplace injury that are not covered by workers’ insurance policies. As well, once a workplace injury victim accepts workers’ compensation insurance, it typically bars them from being allowed to pursue any legal action against their employer- even if they need medical or other help for their workplace injury in the future.
We Fight for Your Rights
Our firm was built on a foundation of honesty, integrity, empathy, and our passion to fight big insurance companies to make sure that individuals who have or are suffering, get the full amount of compensation that they are entitled to- not the amount the workers’ compensation insurance company knows that they can likely get away with. Powerful insurance companies are notorious for spending lots of money on resources that are dedicated to trying to save them money. They do this by making it difficult for injury victims and their families to get the full amount of compensation that they are really entitled to. Having a lawyer and a legal team on your side that is experienced with successfully battling these kinds of companies, can make the process of negotiating with them and standing up for your rights, easier and more fruitful for you.
Workplace Injuries Come in Many Forms
A workplace injury can be an actual physical injury but it can also be a psychological injury. In personal injury law the term injury can also be used to refer to either a physical or psychological illness. A workplace injury can be one that is sustained while actually doing your job but it can also be one that simply happened on the premises of where you work, even if you were on a break when your injury occurred.
Many people envision workplace injuries as accidents that occur on construction sites or in factories with heavy machinery but in reality, workplace injuries can occur in any work setting including, stores, offices, schools, government buildings, the parking lot of a workplace, etc.
A workplace injury can occur suddenly from an accident or event, or it can be caused over time. Examples of common injuries that occur over time are repetitive stress or repetitive trauma injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, and back and neck problems. A psychological injury can occur instantaneously from a traumatic event such as witnessing violence or others getting injured, as well as over time from things such as repeated harassment or verbal abuse. Workplace injuries come in many, many different forms.
