Workers' Compensation Attorneys in Orlando, FL
Protecting the Rights of Florida's Workforce
Especially in the construction industry, the workplace is not always the safe environment that it's meant to be. Even in the office setting, workplace accidents occur more frequently that many would want to believe. Most employers offer workers' compensation packages that cover some expenses in the event that an employee is injured, but too often these packages are not enough, or employers deny their employee's claims altogether.
When employees are not given the fair compensation they are owed after a workplace injury, our Florida personal injury stands up against employers and insurance agencies to make sure that our clients are covered.
Common Types of Workplace Injuries
These can come about in a number of ways and in all work environments. Some are more catastrophic than others, but regardless of the injury type, you deserve the compensation you need to keep your family afloat during recovery.
If incurred in the workplace, the following injury types are deserving of compensation:
- Crushing injuries
- Slip and fall injuries
- Scaffolding injuries
- Injuries from falling objects and debris
- Unsafe or non-existing guardrails
- Repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
Repetitive stress injuries are gaining more traction in recent years. These are injuries that occur over a long period of time of repetitive motion. Without the proper equipment and training on how to avoid them, those who are frequently typing or operating heavy machinery experience sometimes irreversible damage in their joints and muscles. These can directly affect your ability to perform your job and deserve proper compensation.
Put An Experienced Team on Your Side
Workers' compensation packages are generally put into place to protect employers from large civil lawsuit related to personal injury. In these instances, the most common tactic is simply to ensure that you are receiving fair compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other consequences of the injury. There are, however, other cases that involve a third party and that open up an opportunity for both a civil suit and worker's comp. claim.
