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.
