Repetitive Trauma Work Compensation Attorneys Palm Beach County
If you have sustained an injury over time by performing the same actions again and again on the job, please connect with repetitive trauma work compensation attorneys Palm Beach County trusts, as we can help you to explore your legal options. Depending on your worker “classification” and a few other factors, we can help you explore various legal options, including filing for workers’ compensation benefits and/or filing a personal injury claim.
Seeking Compensation for Repetitive Stress and Repetitive Trauma Injuries
There are generally two avenues that workers can take when seeking compensation for repetitive stress and repetitive trauma injuries: workers’ compensation claims and personal injury claims. Most of the time, workers can pursue one avenue or the other, not both. However, there are rare exceptions to this general rule. Our firm’s Palm Beach County repetitive trauma work compensation attorneys can help to clarify your legal options once we learn more about your situation, including the kind of work you do and the kind of injury you have sustained.
If you are full-time or part-time employee of a company that employs more than a handful of workers, you are almost certainly entitled to file a workers’ compensation claim. We can help to ensure that the workers’ compensation insurance claims adjuster assigned to your case doesn’t undervalue your claim or reject your claim for unacceptable reasons. By contrast, if you are an independent contractor, someone who works at a company subject to workers’ compensation coverage exceptions, or a worker in a specialty industry not governed by the workers’ compensation system, we can help you to file a personal injury claim or to pursue another compensation-related avenue available to you. Whatever the particulars of your situation may be, our team is ready to help you seek the maximum amount of compensation to which you are entitled.
Legal Assistance Is Available
Too often, workers believe that if they have sustained an acute or chronic repetitive stress or repetitive trauma injury that they have no options for recourse. They are led to believe that these kinds of injuries are simply the “price of doing business” and that they are expected to simply “deal with it.” It’s important to understand that these perceptions are rooted in a widespread misinterpretation of law and practice. At the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt, we understand that workers who have sustained these kinds of injuries have both rights and viable legal paths available to them designed to ensure that they aren’t saddled with the practical costs of sustaining a repetitive trauma injury. Please allow us a brief window of your time to help you understand your options. The decision to pursue either a workers’ compensation claim or a personal injury claim (as appropriate for your situation) will always rest with you. Our firm’s Palm Beach County repetitive trauma work compensation attorneys look forward to speaking with you.
