Experienced Sunrise Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
Serving West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale Areas
Have you suffered an injury on the job? If so, you are likely entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation benefits were created for employees who are either injured at work during the course of their employment or who develop certain illnesses as a direct result of their job. Claims can arise from events like falling from a significant height, falling objects, accidents involving work vehicles, chemical and/or fire burns, repetitive motion injuries, slip and falls, occupational diseases, and more. Consult with an experienced Sunrise workers’ compensation lawyer to find out how you can get the help you deserve.
Florida law mandates that workers’ compensation insurance be in place for businesses. And if you are injured on the job, its purpose is to protect you and provide for you and your family while you recuperate after an injury. Sometimes, injuries can be very serious, perhaps more serious than the worker even realizes at the moment they occur. Various treatment options include visits to specialists, prescriptions, physical therapy, and surgery. And all treatment options have costs that can add up to a significant amount of money. This is not a financial burden that you should bear alone.
Depending upon your unique situation, workers’ compensation benefits can include payment for your medical bills, replacement of your wages during the time you are unable to work as a result of your injury, and in certain particularly unfortunate cases, death benefits as well. Sadly, many workers are unaware of this and, unfortunately, do not get the compensation they deserve. If one of these situations has happened to you, you’ll need to be timely in filing a claim and in seeking the services of an attorney who can help you do so. Our savvy, committed Sunrise workers’ compensation attorney can help you determine which benefits you may be entitled to and can fight on your behalf to make certain that you receive them.
Filing for compensation can be a complex and lengthy process that can be difficult to navigate alone. Each work-related injury is unique and has its own set of circumstances that can affect the claims process. Workers’ compensation is an insurance program. And just as with any insurance program, the payment process is often administered by adjusters who may seek to reduce or deny benefits. Our Sunrise workers’ compensation lawyer has the knowledge to understand the claims process as well as the tactics that employers or insurers may attempt to use to reduce or deny your claim.
Often, questions can also arise about the nature or the circumstances of the injury or even its location. Sometimes, injuries don’t occur at once but are the result of repeated, work-related trauma. Other times, injuries may occur off of the primary job-site (for example, if you were injured while traveling to fulfill job-related duties). In these sorts of situations, you may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation without even realizing it.
Because of these potential difficulties in navigating the claims process, it is important to have an attorney on your side who is skilled in navigating this particular legal maze. A work injury may not always be as straightforward as it first appears. There are certain exceptions and limitations to benefits that are important to understand thoroughly. Having a skilled Sunrise workers’ compensation attorney in your corner can help you to feel reassured and confident as you move along in this process.
