Palm Beach Workers Compensation Attorney

PALM BEACH WORKERS COMPENSATION ATTORNEYEach Palm Beach FL workers compensation lawyer from our firm has the knowledge, skill and experience necessary to grant you the worker’s compensation you deserve for your workplace injury.

Whether caught in dangerous machinery, struck by a loose object on the premise of your workplace, inflicted with chronic pain due to repetitive physical stress induced by your work, or hit by another vehicle while driving to perform employment duties, our Palm Beach FL workers compensation lawyers will apply their ingenuity and knowledge of workers’ compensation law to ensure that you do not suffer financially for your medical bills and other costs associated with the injury.

As – Palm Beach FL workers compensation lawyers, we are committed to the advancement of workers’ rights. Throughout history, employees and laborers have been used and overworked until no longer useful to those who employed them. In the past, injured employees unable to perform their duties were simply fired. The burden of the workplace injury was on the victim.

Fortunately, as a work injury compensation lawyer Palm Beach workers trust can attest, we now live in a time where employees have rights. If workers are injured while performing tasks at the behest of their employers, they deserve to be compensated. Leaving victims and their families to fend for themselves is cruel and unacceptable.

An injury that results in a period of debilitation – whether permanent or only temporary – is a serious issue that has significant consequences on a person’s lifestyle, ability to work, physical comfort and finances. Employers in the United States are required to take out insurance policies on each of their employees, yet they are often reluctant to give their employers their due workers’ comp in order to avoid higher insurance premiums. Our – Palm Beach FL workers compensation lawyers – can help. Contact us today for a free consultation.

What types of injuries are covered by workers compensation insurance?
If you were injured while working for your employer, a Palm Beach FL workers compensation lawyer can evaluate if workers’ compensation will pay you benefits. The answer depends on a number of things.

As a general rule of thumb, if a basic first aid kit is enough to treat your injury, you may not have grounds to file a workers’ compensation claim. Minor injuries, headaches, and temporary nausea usually resolve themselves within a short time with no long-lasting effects. Unless they are indicators or symptoms of something more serious, workers’ compensation will probably not be a solution.

However, if you experience these symptoms frequently, or on a regular basis, see a doctor. Even if you were injured outside your office or off-site of your company’s property, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. A Palm Beach FL workers compensation lawyer can explain that certain criteria must be met for your claim to be approved. For example:

  • You were performing a task associated with your job. For example, you were driving to a meeting with clients when you were involved in a car accident that resulted in a serious injury. Commuting to your workplace does not qualify for benefits if you are involved in an accident.
  • The injury must be serious enough to require professional medical care, assessment, or treatment.

A Palm Beach FL workers compensation lawyer can also explain reasons why your claim could be denied. If you are injured at work as a direct result of having consumed alcohol or drugs, you will probably not qualify for workers compensation benefits. Similarly, if you were to act intentionally negligently and are injured as a result, your workers’ compensation claim will likely be denied.For example, if you were dancing on your desk and fell, which resulted in a broken leg, you’ll probably have to pay for your medical costs out of pocket or through your personal health insurance policy. If you were unable to work during your recovery time, you might have to take vacation days because workers’ compensation benefits would not apply.

Some workplace injuries are not cut and dry in terms of determining when you were injured. A common example of this is carpal tunnel syndrome. Another example is a respiratory disease from exposure to toxic chemicals or substances such as asbestos. A work injury compensation in lawyer Palm Beach can advocate for you in these complex cases.

If you suspect you are suffering from any of these conditions or injuries, it’s important to see a qualified medical professional as soon as possible. If you receive a positive diagnosis, you will then need to notify your employer immediately. You should also meet a Palm Beach FL workers compensation lawyer right away.
