Some Benefits that May Be Available to Employees Hurt at Work

Some Benefits that May Be Available to Employees Hurt at Work

If you have been hurt at work, you may be entitled to certain benefits such as medical care, lost wages, impairment income, vocational retraining, medications, mileage reimbursements, settlements and more. However, the insurance companies won’t voluntarily give you many of these benefits. At the Law Offices of Franks & Koenig it is our job to fight to maximize each benefit you are entitled to under the law.

Florida’s workers’ compensation law requires insurance companies to provide injured employees access to medical care after being hurt at work they might not be able to afford if they did not have health insurance. If the injured employee is taken out of work, or returned to work with restrictions that the employer cannot accommodate, we can help obtain lost wages that might not otherwise be available if an employee did not have some type of income disability insurance policy.

In Florida, as in most other state’s workers’ compensation systems, a worker injured on the job does not have to prove another party was at fault like a plaintiff would in a non-work related accident (think of motor vehicle accidents or slip and fall accidents at a grocery store or movie theater). Even if the accident was caused by the injured worker themselves, workers’ compensation insurance must provide benefits (presuming the worker was not intoxicated or failed to use safety equipment).

In exchange for not having to prove another party’s fault, injured workers in the workers’ compensation system are not able to collect money for damages like pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life or loss of future income or earning capacity.

If you or a loved one has been hurt at work, please feel free to call today for a free and confidential consultation. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney at the Law Offices of Franks & Koenig is waiting to speak with you today.

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.
