Workers Compensation Attorney in Palm Beach County

Workers Compensation Lawyer Palm Beach County
An experienced Palm Beach County work injury lawyer is an injured employee’s best weapon when fighting to recover lost wages and medical benefits after being hurt at work.

In 2014, there were more than 3,000 reported industrial accidents in Palm Beach County, Florida. Imagine how many more employees suffered injuries from unreported accidents, repetitive traumas and other workplace incidents.

After being hurt at work, an injured worker is entitled to receive certain benefits. These benefits are provided, pursuant to Florida law, free of charge. The problem many injured workers face is finding out how to obtain these benefits. This is where a knowledgeable workers’ compensation lawyer in Palm Beach County can help.

Following a workplace accident, an injury must be reported. Reporting is an essential and critical component following a workplace accident. If you do not report an accident properly, you will literally lose the right to collect the benefits that you are entitled to under the law. Once an employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier is put on notice of the accident, they are required to initiate the process that provides medical care, treatment, medications, diagnostic studies, surgery and more.

If you are unsure how to properly report your workers’ compensation injury, or if you are unsure if you truly have a workers’ compensation injury, call a work injury lawyer in Palm Beach County today. We can help you determine what you need to do to protect yourself and your work comp case.

You may find that your work activity has been restricted or that you have been taken completely out of work by a workers’ compensation doctor. You will either return to work at the restricted work status or be sent home. If you are sent home, or are making less than a certain percentage of your pre-injury income, the work comp carrier should issue lost wage payments. These payments are calculated based on a certain percentage of an injured worker’s pre-injury average wage. However, ensuring these payments are made correctly, timely and actually being sent are another problem all together. A Palm Beach County workers’ compensation lawyer can contact the carrier and ensure timely payment.

When it is time to return to work, an injured worker may face hostility and resentment, especially when they are coming back at a less than full duty status. Supervisors and managers are often undertrained when it comes to dealing with an injured employee, and others are properly trained and simply don’t care. Until it happens to them, or their family member, you are just a lazy person who doesn’t want to work hard. When you face a boss or supervisor who acts like this it is time to contact a work injury lawyer in Palm Beach County. We are able to contact the employer, and their insurance company, to resolve the problem in a way that doesn’t make it seem like an injured worker is complaining about their boss and avoids creating a more hostile work environment.

Certainly we envision a world where all workplaces are free of accidents and injuries. We hope that all employers take every precaution to ensure no harm comes to their employees. But even then, accidents happen.

Florida’s workers’ compensation laws are written so that an injured worker cannot fully obtain the care they need. When an accident happens to you or a loved one, don’t take matters into your own hands. Let an experienced work injury compensation lawyer guide you through the process so you don’t lose out on benefits to which you are entitled under the law.

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.
