First Responder Lawyer
There are several different opportunities to pursue compensation that tend to become available when first responders are hurt on the job. For example, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, personal injury damages, a fairly-valued insurance settlement, and/or crime victim compensation. The kind(s) of compensation to which you may be entitled are dependent upon the circumstances surrounding your harm. Our Palm Beach first responder lawyer team can advise you of your options accordingly, once we’ve heard the details of your unique situation.
First Responder Work Injury Representation
At The Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt, we believe in efficient, effective, compassionate representation that gets results. Of course, we can’t guarantee the outcome of your case – as no ethical lawyer would ever guarantee a specific outcome to any kind of potentially contentious legal matter. However, we can confidently assure you that if you choose to work with our firm, we’ll invest the time, focus, resources, and concern necessary to maximize any compensation to which you may be entitled.
As long as you were hurt while engaged in employment-related activities (and you’re not subject to a very rare coverage exception), you should be entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits as a result of your injuries. Workers’ compensation claims adjusters are only concerned with the issue of fault in scenarios involving workers who are drunk, high, starting an altercation, or purposely trying to get hurt at the time that they sustain injuries. As a result, you should receive these benefits even if you were partially responsible for the circumstances that led to your harm.
The workers’ compensation benefits application process is unusually time sensitive. As a result, you’ll want to contact us immediately to get started on this paperwork. If you’re in a position to pursue personal injury damages, an insurance settlement, or crime victim compensation, it remains important to act quickly, as we’ll want to start securing potentially consequential evidence and fielding calls from insurance companies on your behalf.
