I Was Injured While Lifting Something At Work. Some Have Said That It Must Be My Fault And I Probably Wont Get Workers Compensation. Is That True?
A: Most of the time, your coworkers, friends and family do not know your rights under Florida’s workers’ compensation laws. They are merely speculating what they believe to be true. It is best that you do not talk with many people about your injury, and that you speak with a skilled South Florida workers’ compensation lawyer to find out your rights before everyone else confuses you.
Work accident attorneys know the law, your rights, and can help you submit a proper claim. If your job requires you to lift heavy items daily, you may have suffered from repetitive strain injuries or overexertion. However, your injury may have been the result of one traumatic accident at work. Whatever the case, you may have a Florida workers’ compensation claim for your lifting injuries.
If you got hurt at work as a result of a lifting accident, you should be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
