The first thing to know about your workers’ compensation case is that every claim is unique. You need a board-certified lawyer that deeply understands workers’ compensation law to ensure that you are not missing out on the entitlements you deserve.
An injury sustained from an accident at your place of employment can entitle you to reimbursement for medical expenses and lost wages. Ultimately, your case may be able to be settled. Settlements vary based on your average weekly wage, age, education, and past work history. Settlements are also determined by the extent of your injury, your future medical care needs and the level of your permanent impairment, as determined by your doctor. Unfortunately, in the State of Florida, workers’ compensation law is such that you are not entitled to a settlement based upon pain and suffering or loss of your ability to enjoy life. Two of our partners, Glen Wieland and Alfred Hilado, are board certified by the Florida Bar Association in the area of workers’ compensation. Let us know the details of your particular case and we will let you know how much your case is worth based upon our considerable experience with these matters.
Report your accident immediately. If your employer will not call the insurance company for you, then call the State of Florida yourself at 1-800-342-1741 to report it. It is your right to have the incident accurately and promptly reported.
If you need assistance in gaining the workers’ compensation that you deserve, contact our team of attorneys today.
Mr Hilado is definitely on top of his game. I hired him for my Social Security Disability appeal and finally got my benefits awarded to me in two months. It is hard to find attorneys these days like him. He is very honest, and knowledgeable. I plan on referring him to friends and family.
My husband and I wanted to express our gratitude for your efforts and dedication for my case. It was good to know I was represented by a knowledgeable lawyer. During our first interview I was impressed of your knowledge in worker’s comp cases and I really appreciate your sincere advices, helping me to make the right choices. We will definitely recommend you to anyone in need of your type of services.
