Plantation FL Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Plantation FL Workers' Compensation LawyerIf you’ve been injured due to a work-related accident, you might already know how important it can be to file a workers’ compensation claim and to speak with a skilled Plantation FL workers’ compensation lawyer. At the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt, we know that work-related injuries and illnesses can be incredibly disruptive. After suffering an injury, you may find that it is necessary to file a workers’ compensation claim to cover financial losses and receive medical care.

As an experienced Plantation FL workers’ compensation lawyer might explain, workers’ compensation programs are intended to provide injured workers with much-needed financial assistance and medical care. In reality, receiving the benefits of these programs can be a confusing and complicated process for the average injured worker.

Speaking with a workers’ compensation lawyer in Plantation FL can be a wise decision if you’re deciding whether or not to file a claim. If you are filing a claim for the first time, you may not be sure what to expect. Here is a quick look at some facts about workers’ compensation that may be helpful to keep in mind as you move forward:

  • Work-related injuries and illnesses are more common than some Americans realize. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, roughly 3 million nonfatal injuries and illnesses are reported each year in the private sector. Around half of these injuries or illnesses require days off from work, job transfers, or adjusted job duties.
  • Workers’ compensation claims can be denied. In fact, it is quite common for claimants to receive a denial after their first workers’ compensation claim. Some of these denials are due to missing information or a lack of substantial evidence.
  • Even when a claim is denied, it may be possible to recover financial damages through an appeal. It is common for injured claimants to submit an appeal if their claim is denied the first time, and often with the assistance of a Plantation FL workers’ compensation lawyer.
  • Workers’ compensation payments can cover both medical expenses and lost wages. According to recent information from the Social Security Administration, around $63 billion were paid out to injured workers during 2013. Medical benefits accounted for approximately half of these payments, while lost wages (including payments for disability or for deceased workers) accounted for the remaining half.
  • Certain industries account for a higher percentage of workers’ compensation claims compared to other industries. Construction work, for example, comprises a large portion of workers’ compensation claims. Manufacturing jobs and warehouse jobs also account for a large portion. Office work, on the other hand, does not generally present the same number of risks — but as a knowledgeable Plantation FL workers’ compensation lawyer would attest, it is possible for workers in any industry to sustain an injury or illness on the job.

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.
