Boca Raton Work Injury Compensation Lawyer Boca Raton Work Injury Compensation Lawyer

Workers’ compensation is a program regulated by the state of Florida that all employers are required to carry by law. The specific regulations may vary from state to state, but it’s a crucial program that helps protect and provide financial support for employees who have been injured as a direct result of their job.

It’s always good to refresh your knowledge of basic workers’ compensation do’s and don’ts. Keep reading to learn what needs to happen and what should never happen when dealing with workers’ compensation. For more detailed information, contact a Boca Raton work injury compensation lawyer from the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt.

DO: Go to the doctor right away.

If you’ve been injured on the job or think you may have sustained an injury as a result of your job, it’s crucial to go see a doctor right away. There’s no sense in waiting to seek out medical treatment after you’ve been injured. The sooner you’re diagnosed and treated, the sooner you can get well and get compensation for your lost wages.

DON’T: Wait to file a workers’ compensation claim.

The first step after any work-related injury is to seek treatment and the second is to file a claim. The sooner you file a workers’ compensation claim, the better. And in many cases, if you wait too long to file your workers’ compensation claim, it could be dismissed. If you’re unsure what the statute of limitations in your state is, contact a Boca Raton work injury compensation lawyer.

DO: Get witness accounts of the accident.

If you can, make sure you have eyewitness accounts of your accident. These testimonies will help solidify your workers’ compensation claim and they will make it more difficult for a dispute to get any footing. The more details and the more people who witnessed your injury, the better.

DON’T: Forget to keep medical records.

It’s normal for a little bit of time to pass between seeking medical treatment and filing your workers’ compensation claim. In that between time, it’s critical to keep your medical records and any other documentation that provides evidence of your work-related injury. If you let these papers fall to the wayside, you may have a difficult time getting your compensation.

DO: Enlist the help of a Boca Raton work injury compensation lawyer.

Navigating the legal waters of workers’ compensation can be confusing, especially if you’ve never had an experience like this before. There can be any number of complications involved in filing a workers’ compensation claim. It’s in your best interests to enlist the help of an experienced work injury lawyer in Boca Raton. The more knowledge and experience you have on your side, the better. This will also ensure that in the case an employer disputes your claim, you have someone advocating for you.

Workers’ compensation law can be a bit much to wrap your head around. That’s why it’s important to get a little refresher in of the basics when you can. A few simple do’s and don’ts reminders can make all the difference if you’re faced with your first workers’ compensation claim.

My husband was hurt and never dealt with an attorney before. He looked up attorneys online & thru the grace of God got Lissa Dorsey as his attorney & she was truly amazing! She was very involved, always returned our phone calls & made the whole process as easy for us as she possibly could while my husband treated with Dr's and started his healing process. I would recommend her to any & everyone without a doubt.
