Ladder Injury At Work Lawyer Fort LauderdaleAre you a construction worker who has suffered a ladder injury at work in need of a Fort Lauderdale lawyer? If the answer is yes, you are not alone.

Workers’ Compensation

If you are in the workforce, you have probably heard of workers’ compensation insurance. However, it’s possible that you may not fully understand the benefits and limitations that workers’ compensation can provide you with. Workers’ compensation is a benefit provided to employees in the event that are injured or fall sick while on the job. If you have experienced a ladder injury at work, our Fort Lauderdale lawyers can help you to pursue the benefits of workers’ compensation that may include:

  • A percentage of lost wages
  • Job Rehabilitation
  • Medical Expenses
  • Long Term Care
  • Death Benefits

Workers’ compensation is a mutually beneficial program for both employer and employee. There are a number of reasons for this. One of the most important to be aware of, is the fact that once you accept workers’ compensation benefits, you waive your right to pursue a legal claim against your employer. If you work for an employer who is offering workers’ compensation, chances are you will be expected to accept this benefit rather than pursue a legal claim. However, if you have sustained a ladder injury at work, trusted Fort Lauderdale lawyers can provide you with the help you need in reviewing your workers’ compensation claim. We will also determine whether you have the ability to take action in the form of a third party claim. 

Third-Party Claims

Just because you have accepted workers’ compensation, doesn’t mean you can’t take action against a third party who may have been negligent. Third-party claims can give you the opportunity to pursue additional compensation for your injuries. When someone other than your employer can be held responsible for your at work ladder injury, a Fort Lauderdale lawyer may advise that you take action against the at fault third party. We can help you by carefully reviewing your case and the circumstances surrounding the accident so that we may be able to identify the responsible parties. There are a number of third parties who may be held responsible for injuries on construction sites, including:

  • Contractors
  • Property Owners
  • Equipment Manufacturers

This process may feel complicated following an at work ladder injury which is why a Fort Lauderdale lawyer can assist you. We will work to gather evidence and build a case against the responsible party, negotiating your settlement and providing you with the legal representation you deserve. 

Have you been in an accident on a construction site? Are you unsure of what to do next? It’s only natural that in the wake of an accident you may be overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next. Contact the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt so that you can get in front of your legal case. Allow for our Work Injury Lawyer in Fort Lauderdale to help with your case today. 

Contact us today for a free consultation so we can discuss your situtaion.  It is not only important to talk to an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer when you have been hurt on the job, it is also the best way to make sure that you receive proper medical services and lost wages you are entitled to under the law. After all, the Workers’ Compensation law was created to protect you – the employee.

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.
