Whether you were injured because of your own actions or you were harmed because of another party’s actions, you may be able to recover workers’ comp benefits.

Guided by our legal experience, we are confident in our ability to secure the results you are looking for. If you have questions about workers’ compensation, have been denied benefits, or would like the help of a work injury lawyer, please give us a call today.

Qualifying for Workers’ Compensation

In general, most Plantation FL employees will be covered for workers’ compensation. There are a few exceptions to note; in these circumstances, you may not be eligible.

  • You are a volunteer
  • You are an independent contractor
  • You work on a farm with less than 6 employees in any 20 days
  • You are a maritime, railroad, or federal worker (in this case, there are special programs)

To confirm your eligibility, you can ask a work injury lawyer to review your case. If it is discovered that you are ineligible, there may be alternative or underinsured programs that you qualify for. If negligence or wrongdoing was the cause of your injury, it might also be possible to pursue a personal injury claim.

Time Constraints

With a workers’ compensation claim, there are very strict deadlines that must be met. Some of these deadlines are rather short, and by missing them, you could lose out on your benefits. If this is your first time filing for workers compensation, it will be a smart choice to consult a workers compensation attorney to discuss the time limits pertaining to your own situation.

When You Should Have an Attorney on your Side

Almost anyone can file for workers’ compensation; however, the process can be more complex than it initially seems. One small paperwork mistake, or failing to include a piece of documentation, could result in a denial. A workers compensation attorney may help to prevent this obstacle altogether and ensure everything is done correctly.

Workers’ Comp Benefits

The objective of workers’ compensation is to prevent any unnecessary financial hardship for an injured worker. If you qualify, you might receive:

  • A portion of your weekly wages or salary
  • Disability
  • Paid medical care and therapy
  • Travel reimbursement
  • + More

Non-economic damages are not provided through workers’ compensation. If negligence was a factor, it may be possible to pursue these damages through a separate personal injury claim.

Speak to a Work Injury Lawyer from Plantation FL

The last thing you want is to have your employer or insurance company give you less than what you need to adequately recover from your injury. For this reason, you should find out what steps you can take to protect your interests.
