Fort Lauderdale Work Injury Compensation Lawyer

Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt

Why Should I Take my Workers’ Comp Claim to Court?

If you have been injured on the job, chances are you may be accessing workers compensation benefits as a Fort Lauderdale work injury compensation lawyer can explain. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation does not provide a payout of your entire salary or pay. This can be challenging for many because financial hardship may ensue depending on the amount of time you are out of work for. In some situations, an employer may even terminate your workers’ comp benefits. Let us help you sort through this mess! Here at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt we have more than 100 years of combined experience in representing workers’ compensation cases. Did You Slip and Fall in Your Workplace? 

Can I File a Lawsuit if I am Collecting Workers’ Comp?

As a Fort Lauderdale work injury compensation lawyer can attest, in most cases, once you accept workers’ compensation, you waive your right to file a claim in court. This is because you have entered an agreement with your employer regarding workers’ compensation. Many decide to move forward with workers’ compensation claims that are offered by their employer when the injury or situation is more straightforward. However, there are a few exceptions to this that we may be able to help you with. In the following, you may be able to file a lawsuit while also collecting workers’ compensation benefits:

  • Your employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance, in most states; this is illegal because this benefit is required in all states with the exception of Texas.
  • Intentional harm: If your employer intended to hurt you on purpose.

When an Fort Lauderdale Work Injury Compensation Lawyer is Necessary

If injuries you suffered while working were severe in nature it will be important to contact the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt. In some situations, your injuries may be so serious that your life has been impacted in a big way. Call us immediately at (561) 616-3800 if any of the following pertains to you:

  • Need help with the workers’ compensation process
  • You are no longer able to work at your job
  • It is believed that you will not make a full recovery from your injury
  • Your injuries resulted in surgery
  • If your employer rejected your claim for workers’ compensation

Don’t hesitate; a caring and compassionate Fort Lauderdale work injury compensation lawyer at our firm is waiting to help you. You have a right to fair compensation, especially if you have been severely injured on the job.

What are Temporary Total Disability Benefits?

Temporary Total Disability Benefits (TTD) is a type of workers’ compensation that should be provided to you if you are severely injured while on the job and unable to go back to work. Your doctor will be key in receiving this type of benefit, as they will be able to determine the level of your disability. Thankfully for you, taxes are not taken out of any TTD that you receive.

What if I Can’t Return to my Job?

What if I can’t go back to work? It is a scary thought that many must contend with. This likely will bring on far more questions for you. If you are injured and unable to return to your job, you will want to know what will happen next. Let us represent you; our track record here at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt speaks for itself.

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.
