Lake Worth Work Injury Compensation Lawyer

Lake Worth Work Injury Compensation Lawyer

The Lake Worth work injury compensation attorneys at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt have more than 100 – years of combined experience helping those who have been hurt at work. We specialize in work injury cases and workers’ compensation accidents.

Our attorneys and support staff have dedicated their professional lives to helping people who have been injured in workplace accidents.

If you have been injured in a workplace accident and are in need of a Lake Worth workers’ compensation lawyer, contact us for a free consultation. All of our attorneys on staff work exclusively with workers who have been injured on the job. Never for the employers. The founding attorneys at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt began their careers working for insurance companies or employers. Dissatisfied with such representation and negative experiences, they became Lake Worth work injury compensation lawyers that people, not corporations, could turn to in their time of need. Through our prior legal experiences, the Lake Worth lawyers at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt, are very familiar with the techniques and strategies that insurance companies and employers use to strip workers of their rights after being hurt on the job. We are staffed with the kind of work injury lawyers who will fight for you to receive the compensation benefits you deserve.

Emotional Damages from a Work Injury

An experienced Lake Worth work injury compensation lawyer also understands that a workplace injury can be complicated. In addition to whatever physical injury you may be suffering from, there may be related mental and emotional injuries such as depression and anxiety. Our attorneys at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt take these potential issues into account. After a thorough assessment of your case, we will provide you with a detailed action plan including helping obtain mental health counseling services.

Following a workplace accident, medical bills can add up quickly. In addition, you may not be capable of returning to work immediately or even in the long term. We can help get those bills paid and work to have your employer’s workers’ compensation carrier pay lost wages. In any situation, obtaining a quick and fair recovery is extremely important. Contact us for a free consultation so we can determine the best strategy for your case.

If you need an experienced work injury compensation lawyer in Lake Worth, the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt is here for you. Our team of experienced attorneys strongly believe in the rights of workers. After a workplace injury occurs, some workers may feel pressured to not seek proper medical attention or compensation. We can help determine if you are qualified for workers’ compensation payment, reimbursement of medical bills, special job training, and other benefits.

What Should I Do If I’ve Been Injured?

If you have been injured on the job, a Lake Worth work injury compensation lawyer understands that you may be unsure of what steps you should take. Although risks of workplace injury are higher in some occupations than in others, it is important to realize that all workers are at risk for one reason or another of sustaining an injury or illness that is connected somehow to their employment. Knowing what to do before an injury actually occurs can be helpful when it comes to navigating through the claims process.

Important Steps

The first thing to do if you have been injured or develop symptoms of an illness related to your work is to seek medical treatment immediately. Failure to do could result in your employer disputing the claim, like accusing you of actually being injured elsewhere or accusing you of not being injured at all.

Once you have been seen by a doctor, you should then take the following steps:

Notify your employer of the injury: Most states have a window on how long you have to report the injury to your employer. In Florida, that window is 30 days. If you wait longer than that, you could end up losing your chance at receiving benefits. Your employer then has seven days to report the injury to the insurance company that carries their workers’ compensation insurance.

Filing the claim: At this point, you should consider consulting with a work injury compensation lawyer to assist you in filling out and filing the claim with the workers’ compensation division. You will be required to provide information about the incident that resulted in the injury. The division will determine whether or not your claim is valid. If they approve the claim, your employer will be required to pay for all of the medical expenses and wage compensation through their workers’ compensation insurance.

If they deny your claim, you do have the right to appeal. Your lawyer can represent you through this appeal process. There are also incidents where an employer may appeal an approved claim.

Compensation Benefits

 In addition to all medical bills being covered, you will also be entitled to a wage compensation benefit that is based on your average weekly wage, however, it cannot be more than the maximum weekly wage amount set by the workers’ compensation division.

These wage benefits stop once your doctor has released you to return to work, however, there are many cases where the doctor will initially release an injured worker on a part-time basis. In these situations, the worker will receive the part-time wage, with the workers’ comp benefit making up the difference in the worker’s normal weekly wage.

Your work injury compensation lawyer will assist you throughout this process to ensure you are receiving all the benefits you are entitled to.
