Broward County Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
When the unthinkable happens and you or a loved one is hurt at work call an experienced Broward County workers’ compensation lawyer as soon as possible.
A dedicated work injury compensation lawyer is an injured worker’s best weapon when battling the workers’ compensation insurance company. You can be sure that they will have a team of investigators, adjusters and attorneys working for them. Whom will you have to help secure medical care, lost wages and ultimately a cash settlement? It is imperative that you hire a qualified Broward County work injury lawyer.
Our Broward County Work Injury Lawyers Will Protect Your Benefits
After you have suffered an accident or injury at work, report the event to a supervisor, superior or boss. Then seek immediate medical attention. Documenting an injury is extremely helpful when pursuing your claim. Adjusters and judges will look to see when an injured body part was first documented. If you didn’t report an injured body part after the accident, don’t delay in telling a medical provider as soon as you realize your injury is related to your accident. Once you have obtained medical care, contact a Broward County work injury compensation lawyer to protect the benefits to which you are entitled to under the law.
Many injured workers are worried that if they report their injury they will be fired. We hear from people who tell how their supervisors or bosses threatened them with termination if they seek to report or file a workers’ compensation accident or hire an attorney to file a claim on their behalf. However, if you do not report your case in fear of losing your job you will not be able to obtain medical care. Without medical care, how long will your employer keep you around if you cannot work like you did before the injury?
Do not let an employer intimidate you into not seeking the medical care and lost wage benefits to which you are entitled. Remember, you only have a certain period of time to report an injury. If you don’t report in time, and you are fired after the reporting deadline has passed, when you go to file a claim the workers’ compensation carrier will likely deny your claim for lack of or late reporting.
When it comes to your health you cannot count on your employer to look out for you. Employers are loath to report workplace injuries for fear of increased premiums or even being dropped by their insurers. Not having injuries at work benefits your bosses, even if that means trying to persuade you not to file a claim. Don’t let your employer’s interests come before your health and well being.
