Lake Worth Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt

Lake Worth Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

When you or a loved one has been hurt at work, do not delay in contacting an experienced Lake Worth workers’ compensation lawyer.

Our team of workers’ compensation lawyers are dedicated to ensuring your rights are protected following an industrial accident. This means obtaining medical care and lost wages when you need it most.

Once a claim has been reported, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company is required to provide medical care. However, many employers are hesitant to report an injury for fear of retaliation from their bosses, corporate offices or officers. We cannot tell you how many times we hear that an injured employee’s supervisor refuses to complete an incident report due to being an “accident free” workplace or that it would hurt their chances at getting a big bonus or raise. Clearly, a few extra bucks in their pocket is more important to them than your health and ability to put food on the table for your family.

At the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt, our Lake Worth work injury compensation lawyers are familiar with the tricks and excuses employers use when trying to avoid the reporting of an injury. Remember, you only have a certain period of time to report an accident and still be able to receive medical care and lost wages. Do not delay when it comes to reporting your accident and hiring an aggressive work injury lawyer.

Florida’s workers’ compensation laws are designed to protect the injured workers. However, the insurance companies pay their adjusters and lawyers to prevent injured workers from receiving the medical care and lost wages to which they may be entitled. The experienced workers’ compensation lawyers at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt are ready to fight the insurance companies to ensure you get the medical care you need to get back to work and the money you need to pay your bills while you are out.

Following a workplace accident or injury, immediately report the claim. After reporting, seek immediate medical attention. If you can’t do either, or after you have done both, immediately hire a Lake Worth work injury compensation lawyer. We are here to make sure you do not have deal with adjusters who won’t call you back or doctors who won’t listen to your concerns. We are here to help you with the work comp headaches so you may recover from your injuries.

Let the work injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt make your path to a road of recovery a smooth one. Call us today for a free and confidential consultation at 561-616-3800.

When You Should Hire a Workers Compensation Lawyer

If you were recently injured at work, you may wonder if you should hire a Lake Worth workers compensation lawyer or handle the case yourself. If you suffered a minor injury and your employer is cooperating with you, legal assistance might not be necessary. However, if there are complexities in your case, it may be in your best interest to hire a lawyer. Here are a few situation in which you may need a lawyer:

  • Your Employer Has Denied Your Claim: When you get injured at work and file a workers compensation claim, you might not expect your claim to get rejected. Unfortunately, however, this happens more often than you think. If your employer denied your claim, you don’t have to give up. You can file an appeal. An experienced workers compensation lawyer can help you file this appeal and improve your chances of success.
  • Your Employer Has Retaliated Against You: When you suffer an injury in the workplace, it’s completely within your right to file a workers compensation claim. However, that doesn’t stop some employers from retaliating against you. If your boss has demoted you, cut your hours or terminated you for filing a claim, you should consult a Lake Worth workers compensation lawyer promptly. He or she will stand up for your legal rights.
  • Your Settlement Isn’t Sufficient Enough: Even if your employer agreed to provide you with workers compensation benefits, the settlement might not be enough to pay for all of your medical bills and lost wages. If this is the case, you should get an experienced workers compensation lawyer involved.
  • Your Injury Prevent You from Doing Your Job: If your injury is so severe that it keeps you from performing your job duties, you may be entitled to higher payments. However, insurance companies won’t just agree to these payments without a fight, as are very expensive. That’s why you need an experienced lawyer on your side. He or she will fight hard to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
  • A Third Party Was Involved: If a third party was involved in your workplace accident, you can file a lawsuit outside of workers comp. For instance, if you drive a vehicle for work and another driver hit your vehicle, you can file a lawsuit against the driver. A Lake Worth workers compensation lawyer can help you do this.
