Florida Workers Compensation
Florida law requires that all employers (with a few exceptions) carry workers’ compensation insurance. However, this does not mean that injured workers will get the medical care and monetary compensation to which they are entitled. Regardless of fault, Florida workers’ compensation laws require employers to provide medical care and pay lost wages for work related accidents and 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.
We Fight for Your Rights
Our firm was built on a foundation of honesty, integrity, empathy and a passion to help those who have been hurt at work. We are willing to fight the big insurance companies to make sure that individuals who are suffering receive the benefits and compensation they are entitled. The workers’ compensation insurance companies know they can get away with not providing you everything allowed under the law. We make sure you are not taken advantage of, even when powerful insurance companies who are notorious for spending lots of money on resources that are dedicated to trying to save them money, try and deny you care. They do this by making it difficult for injury victims and their families to get the full amount of compensation they are entitled to. Having an experienced lawyer and legal team on your side who have successfully battled these insurance companies can make the difference in getting all of your benefits or possibly none at all.
Workplace Injuries Come in Many Forms
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, doctor’s offices, on work trips, when traveling for work to locations and even when running errands for your employer.
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 trauma injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, and back and neck problems. If you have experienced a physical injury, and then develop a psychological injury, like PTSD, you may also be eligible for medical and lost wage benefits.
Workplace injuries come in many, many different forms. Don’t listen to an employer or a doctor who tells you a repetitive trauma injury cannot be caused by your work activities. Call an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer who understands the law.
