Florida workers currently recovering from injuries suffered on the job may run into challenges when they are unable to return to their duties. Workplace accidents can have long-term consequences, and workers who must stay home for extended periods of time (or permanently) in recovery may run into financial problems when their paychecks are no longer coming in. An experienced attorney can assist a recovering injured worker as he or she navigates the workers' compensation system.
Every job comes with risks of injury. But clearly some jobs have much greater risks than others. Think, for instance, of Miami police officers and firefighters. The brave people who put those uniforms on every day put themselves on the line to make our community safer.
