Palm Beach Gardens Florida Workers Compensation Lawyer

Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt

Palm Beach Gardens Florida Workers Compensation Lawyer Palm Beach Gardens Florida Workers Compensation Lawyer

Our Palm Beach Gardens Florida workers compensation lawyer shares that car accidents are among the top forms of work-related accidents. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2017, workers in car accidents attributed nearly 25% of all work-related deaths. As a victim of a car accident, there can be layers to the situation you face. If you were performing work-related duties, you should be entitled to workers compensation insurance as a way to assist with medical expenses and recovery. However, this process can be complicated and may involve holding a negligent driver accountable. At the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt, we know that you will be facing a variety of questions, which is why contacting our office as soon as possible is in your best interest. 

If I am in a car accident while working, will I be able to retain workers compensation for injuries and lost wages? 

Many jobs require driving as a component of performing daily work duties. If you are in an accident, workers compensation covers car accidents if you were performing tasks related to your job. However, it’s essential to be aware that when you accept workers compensation benefits, in most cases, you waive your right to seek a personal injury claim against your employer. 

Will my workers compensation claim be denied if I am at fault for the car accident? 

No. Workers compensation is a no-fault system meaning even if you caused the accident, you would still be entitled to workers compensation benefits. However, in some cases, your claim could be denied. Our Palm Beach Gardens Florida workers compensation lawyer shares that if you were driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, your workers compensation claim might be denied. 

Does workers compensation apply if I am in a car accident while commuting to or from work?

When you are traveling to and from work, you are typically not on work time. Because of this, much of the time workers compensation would not apply should a car accident occur. There can be some exceptions to this, so working with a lawyer will be critical. 

What is a third party claim? Will this be my only opportunity at compensation for my losses?

Sometimes, you may experience an accident that requires a third party claim. This means you can accept workers compensation benefits and also pursue legal action against a third party whose negligence contributed to the accident. A third party is a person or entity that is unrelated to your employer. If you have been in a car accident that was the fault of another driver, you may be able to take legal action against them for damages. 

The Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt are lawyers with vast experience managing work-related accidents. Workers comp cases can be incredibly stressful for a worker. You may be facing losses that are difficult to recover from. Not only can injuries be significant and, in some cases, take long periods to recover from, but they can also be incredibly expensive. To ensure that your rights are kept at the forefront, and to make the most of the benefits you are entitled, contact our Palm Beach Gardens Florida workers compensation lawyer to get started.

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.
