Delray Beach Work Injury Compensation Lawyer

Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt

Delray Beach Work Injury Compensation Lawyer Delray Beach Work Injury Compensation Lawyer

Contacting a Delray Beach work injury compensation lawyer that victims recommend may be one of the first steps to take if you are hurt. Injuries can be vast, and depending upon the type of work you do; the consequences may be tremendous. Work-related injuries can result in not only pain but also significant financial losses. While workers’ compensation may provide assistance that helps in the recovery process, at times, this benefit may not be enough to allow you to retain all that you have lost. For the answers to the many questions you are sure to have, contact the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt for help managing your case. 

Work Injuries

There are several places that work-related injuries might occur. While some jobs are certainly far more hazardous than others, accidents can happen nearly anywhere. While some might happen in an office environment, other jobs that might have a high likelihood for injury include: 

  • Construction Work
  • Factory Positions
  • Truck Drivers
  • Law Enforcement Officers
  • Electricians 
  • Firefighters

There can be a range of injuries that a person might be susceptible to, especially if the employer doesn’t adhere to OSHA’s expectations. Accidents could result in injuries, including:

  • Slips and falls
  • Being struck by equipment
  • Falling from a significant height
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Overexertion

Who should I report my injury to if I am harmed on the job?

Following a work-related injury, our work injury compensation lawyer serving Delray Beach will tell you that you should report your injury to your supervisor or employer as soon as possible. In some cases, you may even be required to report the injury in writing. To ensure that your rights are protected and access workers’ compensation benefits, this must occur promptly. 

What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a mutually beneficial form of insurance available to workers in the state of Florida. Should an employee sustain an injury while at work, they can access medical care and even recover a portion of their lost wages. In exchange, you waive your right to sue your employer the damages that you have suffered. However, be aware that in some cases, this may not be possible, especially if you experience problems in accessing benefits from your employer. Additionally, you may seek compensation if a third party can be held liable, which is why you will want to contact a lawyer for guidance. 

What situations might call for legal help from an experienced professional?

If your injuries were relatively minor, and you were quickly able to access workers’ compensation benefits, it may not be necessary to contact a lawyer for help. However, in some situations, you may need a lawyer’s assistance to help manage your case; this might include:

  • Your injuries impact your ability to return to your job
  • You must access disability benefits for the long term
  • You experience retaliation
  • A third party can be held responsible for their negligence
  • Workers’ comp doesn’t cover your medical expenses

The last thing you want is to make mistakes that could impact your ability to obtain workers’ compensation benefits or cause the injury you have experienced to be far worse than it could have been. It’s only natural that you may be feeling overwhelmed with seeking medical care, managing issues with your employer, and dealing with the stress that is sure to follow. Contacting the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt can provide you with the best opportunity to properly manage your case. Please schedule an appointment with our Delray Beach, Florida, work injury compensation worker as soon as possible to get started.
