Experienced Workers Compensation Lawyer Palm Beach Gardens

Experienced Workers Compensation Lawyer Palm Beach Gardens

Experienced Workers Compensation Lawyer Palm Beach GardensWhile most employers do their best to keep the workplace safe, accidents can still happen. That’s why employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance for their employees. If you were injured at work, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. An experienced workers compensation lawyer in Palm Beach Gardens can help you file your claim.

Here are the most common myths about workers compensation.

You Have to Get Injured on the Jobsite to Receive Benefits

Many employees falsely assume that they can only apply for workers compensation benefits if they got hurt on the jobsite. However, as an experienced workers compensation lawyer in Palm Beach Gardens can confirm, you don’t necessarily have to be on the jobsite. For example, if part of your job involves driving a vehicle and you get into a vehicle accident, you will be eligible for workers compensation benefits.

You Can’t Receive Benefits If the Injury Was Your Fault

Fortunately, fault is not a factor in workers compensation cases. If you sustained an injury because you weren’t paying attention or had little experience, you can still qualify for benefits. However, if you suffered an injury under the influence of drugs or alcohol, that’s an entirely different story. You will have a much more difficult time getting benefits if you were intoxicated.

You Can Get Fired for Filing for Benefits

While some employers might not like it when their employees file for workers compensation benefits, they can’t legally fire them. If they do attempt to terminate employees for filing for benefits, they can face harsh consequences. If your employer has attempted to fire you after you applied for benefits, talk to an experienced workers compensation lawyer in Palm Beach Gardens.

You Should Wait to See If You Get Better Before Filing a Claim

If your injury seems fairly minor right now, you might think it’s a good idea to wait to see if it gets better before filing a claim. After all, filing a claim can be stressful and time-consuming. However, you should know that you only have 30 days to report a work injury to your employer. Once that deadline has passed, you won’t be eligible for benefits anymore. That is why you should tell your employer about your injury as soon as possible.

You Don’t Need a Lawyer to Handle Your Claim

If your injury is fairly minor and your employer is being reasonable, you may be able to file a workers compensation claim on your own. However, if your employer has denied your claim or retaliated against you in any way, you should definitely hire an experienced workers compensation lawyer in Palm Beach Gardens.

If you were injured at work, you should schedule a consultation with an experienced workers compensation lawyer in Palm Beach Gardens. Call the law offices of Frank, Koenig & Neuwelt today.

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.
