My attorney from Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt, Eric Lakind, returned my calls when I had a question or an issue. Lisa and Kim regularly communicate through emails and telephone to ensure that my injury is being taken care of and insuring that the workers compensation company is doing what they are supposed to be doing. I do not live in the area that their office is located, I live several hours North; that did not stop or hinder anything regarding the care that Eric and his staff gave me. They paid for all correspondence through self addressed stamped envelopes. Eric does not play games when it comes to fighting for you. I worked for a large, nationwide, well known home improvement company and that did not affect the outcome or the way they did their job. Awesome Job

I would highly recommend Judd and his staff especially Lisa and Kim for anyone with workers comp issues. They kept me informed of what was going on with my case and stop the insurance company from having me do some things that would have hurt my case. They are very knowledgeable of all the laws concerning workers comp. Thank y'all very much.

Andy, On behalf of my mom and our family, I want to thank you for helping mom settle her claim. You have treated her respectfully, answered all of our questions completely, displayed great patience with numerous siblings and have been a pleasure to work with. You won't remember this but we found your firm in the yellow pages - a VERY lucky pick. You came to see mom and meet with us in the hospital the same day we called you and from then on, made yourself readily available to all of us. It's so unusual to find that wonderful combination of service AND experience. I doubt I'll be a referral source but I'd recommend you to anyone who asked! I wish you practiced family law. With best regards, sincere thanks and wishes for your good health.

One of the many things that sets The Law Offices of Franks, Koenigs, & Neuwelt in its own special niche that goes above and beyond other workers’ compensation law firms in Florida, is not just our passion and proven ability to protect the rights of injured workers- it is our ability to uphold our core values of honesty, integrity, and empathy, in our battles against insurance companies that historically have not honored injured workers’ rights to fair and just compensation for their work-related injuries and illnesses.

From the lawyers who started the firm down to the newest members on our legal team and staff, we all have a passion for helping people and advocating for their rights. Our diverse backgrounds and experiences give us unique insight into the needs of our clients and how to best serve them.

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.
