Personal Injury And Workers Compensation Law
It does not matter what type of job you have or what industry you are in; everyone is susceptible to suffering a personal injury while in the workplace. Since Florida’s workers compensation system operates under strict liability laws, injured workers are likely to be entitled to benefits regardless of who is at fault. If you are looking to be properly represented throughout this legal process, you will need a team of diligent and professional workers compensation lawyers that understand the laws and regulations in Florida.

What Do Workers Compensation Lawyers Do?
Although workplace injuries are most common in manufacturing and construction jobs, they occur in all types of industries. For example, we see a wide variety of claims being filed by office workers dealing with back and spinal injuries due to lifting, bending and sitting for long periods of time, while others are dealing with arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome from typing or other repetitive use injuries in the arms and/or hands.
Having the right workers compensation lawyers on your side can give you the peace of mind you need throughout the legal process.
When you meet with your lawyers, they will begin to assess how your injury has affected your life. It is their job to consider everything, including your emotional, physical and financial needs.
As the legal process proceeds, they will keep your best interests in mind as they navigate ways to maximize the benefits you receive. You may be entitled to receive medical benefits, reimbursement for lost wages, vocational rehabilitation benefits, and disability benefits.
Are There Personal Injury Or Workers Compensation Laws Specific to Florida?
If you have suffered an injury while on the job, there will be several different factors determining whether you receive benefits or not. Luckily, for Florida residents, workers are likely to qualify for benefits regardless of who is at fault for the injury.
There are some rules, however, that every Florida resident should be aware of when filing a workers compensation claim. For starters, the injury must be reported to your employer within 30 days of the occurrence, though some exceptions might apply. If this is not followed, there is a chance that your claim will be denied.
If you are receiving wage reimbursement, you will likely fall under one of three different categories: temporary total disability (TTD), temporary partial disability (TPD), and impairment benefits. The category you fall in will determine the benefits you receive.
With an experienced workers compensation lawyer on your side, you will know you are receiving all of the benefits you are entitled to in your unique situation. Since personal injuries are often life-altering events, you need to ensure your best interests are being taken care of.
