Experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorney Palm Beach Gardens

Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt

If you were hurt at work, you should speak to an experienced workers compensation attorney Palm Beach Gardens’ residents trust. An attorney can help you file a timely claim and protect your legal rights. Here are the most common types of workplace injuries:

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can occur at many different workplaces, from offices to construction sites, and cause serious injuries, like head injuries and paralysis. The most common cause of slip and fall accidents include wet floors, uneven surfaces and tripping hazards in walkways. There are several ways to reduce slip and falls, like cleaning up spills immediately and putting up “wet floor” signs after mopping up spills.

Transportation Accidents

Employees who are required to drive a vehicle for work are at risk of getting into transportation accidents. If they get into the accident while on the clock, workers compensation will typically cover their injuries. However if they get into an accident while commuting to work or running a personal errand, things can get a little trickier. In this situation, it’s best to hire an experienced workers compensation attorney in Palm Beach Gardens. To avoid transportation accidents, employees should receive periodic training, avoid using a cellphone behind the wheel and take rest breaks.

Exposure to Harmful Substances and Environments

Employees can also suffer injuries from harmful substances and environments, like radiation, electricity, extreme temperatures and noise. They are at risk of developing severe conditions, like cancer, frostbite and heat stroke. Workers can take steps to protect themselves against these hazards, like taking frequent breaks, drinking water, wearing masks when working with hazardous substances and wearing ear protection in loud environments.

Workplace Violence

As sad as it is, many workplace accidents are the result of intentional harm by another person. If employees get into disagreements with each other, they may react violently. That’s why it’s important for workplaces to have a zero-tolerance policy for violence and remind workers of this periodically. Employees should also take all physical threats from other employees seriously and report them to their supervisor immediately.

Being Hit by Fallen Objects

Workers can also endure head injuries by getting hit by fallen objects. These types of accidents are common in construction and warehouses and environments, and workers can protect themselves by wearing hard hats. Employees can also get hit in the head by falling objects in office environments if they’re not stored properly on shelves.

Walking Into Objects

Employees are in danger of walking into doors, tables and other objects if they’re not paying attention. This can happen in any type of work environment. Workers can greatly minimize these accidents by always being alert of their surroundings.

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.
