Workers’ Compensation Claims

Every year, millions of injuries and illness are reported in the private sector and this leads to $900,000 worth of cases (lost income due to said injury/illness). In Florida, there is a compensation system to provide injured and ill workers with the support they need in the shape of benefits. However, you can’t go it alone…

At The Injury Firm, we have years of experience in dealing with the workers’ compensation system in Florida so you can be confident in our service. Once you contact us, our experts will ensure you receive the right compensation for lost wages so you can receive the appropriate level of care for your personal injury. For both you and your family, this can be a difficult time to navigate because you don’t want to be worrying about finances when injured or ill. Therefore, we’ll stand by your side and ensure you receive what’s owed.

Worker’s Compensation - Although there’s nothing to stop you from going it alone, most people have no idea where to start with the preparation and documentation of your claim. Furthermore, will your employer support the claim? What compensation package should you actually be looking for? Whilst trying to deal with an injury/illness, these are the last things you want to be worrying about.

Over the years, worker’s compensation claims have become common so we now have the required skills to be effective in this area of the industry. Not only can we answer your burning questions, we can assess your case, let you know what to expect, and explain how it all works. Once you’re happy to go ahead, we can get the process started by filing the right documentation and submitting the claim in the right way.

Florida Law - As long as the injury was caused by an action required in your job, Florida law suggests you are eligible for benefits. In addition to injuries, this benefits system also covers illnesses and repetitive-motion strains. With the former, this could be a result of exposure to fumes, pollutants, and other toxins. Unfortunately, strains can occur from pulling, pushing, and regularly lifting heavy objects; for example, common injuries include tendonitis, edema, and carpal tunnel syndrome. If the injury is hard to prove, we may need to contact a professional to provide their opinion on the extent of your injury and the resulting consequences.

Compensation System - In Florida, you’ll be protected regardless of your industry whether you work at sea, in a warehouse, office, construction site, etc. Additionally, all work-related activities are included from operating a forklift to cleaning windows. Whether you’re slightly injured or have been permanently disabled, your employer should have compensation insurance which covers all successful claims to ensure the business has money to pay for medical care and disability payments; these payments will be made available for temporary and permanent disability. If a friend or family member sadly passes away as a result of the injury/illness, death benefits may be owed.

Contact Us Today - With a professional team of experts just waiting to help, you can get in touch today with any questions or requests you may have. If you’ve been injured or are currently ill as a result of your work, you need to act quickly so the evidence can be gathered and the documentation submitted as soon as possible!
