We’ll Guide You Through The Workers’ Compensation Process
If you or a loved one has been injured in the workplace, you probably have a lot of questions about workers’ compensation. We understand. The Florida workers’ compensation process can be very confusing if you try to navigate it on your own.
At The Accident Law Group, P.A., we will answer all of your questions. When you choose our law firm, you will work directly with a Coral Gables workers’ compensation attorney. You will not be shuffled off to a case worker. Your case will get the representation it needs to be a success.
We have dedicated our practice to helping injured people, not just individually, but on a larger scale as well. We are members of Florida Workers’ Advocates (FWA), a group of attorneys attempting to change the unjust laws that address the treatment of injured workers.
Help At All Stages Of A Workers’ Comp Claim
If you have suffered a work injury, you are entitled to workers’ comp benefits. Whether you are just beginning the process or you have already applied and been denied workers’ compensation, our lawyers can help you get the benefits you need. We have the experience to appeal denied claims and represent you at hearings, if necessary.
Termination After A Work Accident
Many people do not file workers’ compensation claims because they are afraid of being fired. It is illegal for an employer to fire an employee for filing a workers’ compensation claim. You can continue to work for your employer if you were injured on the job and hire an attorney to help you make sure you are receiving the proper benefits. If you were fired after suffering an on-the-job injury and filing a workers’ compensation claim, we may also file a wrongful termination claim.
Was a party other than your employer responsible for your injury? You may be able to file a personal injury suit against the negligent third party. Personal injury compensation is different from your workers’ comp benefits. In a personal injury lawsuit, unlike workers’ comp, you can recover additional compensation for medical bills and lost wages, but unlike workers’ comp, personal injury compensation also includes damages for pain and suffering.
All workers’ compensation cases are handled on a contingency basis. That means you are only required to pay if we are successful in getting you compensation.
