It is your right under Florida Law to make a claim for Workers Compensation when you have suffered an injury during the course and scope of your employment. The most common type of accident involves lifting injuries or slip and fall injuries, which many times cause a catastrophic spinal cord injury or traumatic Florida brain injury
. Serious injuries such as a spinal cord injury or head trauma can result in paraplegia, quadriplegia, nerve damage, or facial paralysis. Exposure to chemicals, dust, fumes, animals or other work environmental exposures may result in injury or wrongful death – which may also be covered under the Florida Workers Compensation laws.
Many times during the investigative stage of a workers’ compensation case we find other avenues to bring claims against third parties which could increase the value of your claim. For example, an employee may be using a vehicle while in the course and scope of their employment; in that case there may be a claim for workers compensation as well as a claim for a South Florida auto accident. Driving an automobile is a daily occurrence, but this routine of getting behind the wheel of your car can be dangerous. Most people don’t fear driving, but Florida car accidents are the leading cause of wrongful death and serious injuries facing Floridians and, for that matter, this nation. Car accidents can occur at any time and might leave you with severe injuries, such as brain injury, spinal cord injury, loss of limbs, and paralysis among others.
The Workers Compensation system was set up to help workers who are unable to work and make money because they were injured at work. Often, the system works against an employee who doesn’t have the time, resources or money to fight big insurance companies and employers who refuse to meet their legal responsibilities. These disastrous situations typically lead to emotional feelings of being overwhelmed, frustrated, angry, and fearful. You might feel like your life is shattering, and you don’t know what to do and don’t have the answers. If you or a loved one has sustained severe physical injuries, you should not face this situation alone. Call a South Florida accident attorney today.
