Were You Injured on the Job?
port st. lucie workers' compensation lawyer

When you have been injured on the job, you should consider scheduling a consultation with a workers’ compensation lawyer. By doing so, you can learn about the process and find out the best way to navigate it without losing any benefits.

For decades, the Port St. Lucie workers’ compensation lawyers from the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt have been helping injured or ill workers receive their benefits in full. Regardless of you being injured because of your own error or falling ill due to poor safety measures at your job, there is a good chance you can recover workers’ compensation.

Geared with ample experience and a solid grasp of state work laws, we bring remarkable skill and aptness to each case. As such, we have been able to secure maximum workers’ compensation benefits for thousands of Port St. Lucie workers. If you would like help with your own claim or have been denied benefits, call a workers’ compensation lawyer from the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt.

How to Qualify for Workers’ Compensation in Port St. Lucie

Generally, a majority of Port St. Lucie workers will be eligible to receive benefits under the state’s workers’ compensation program. The exception to this would apply to the following circumstances:

  1. You are a volunteer
  2. You are working on a farm that employs six workers in a 20 day period
  3. You are a federal worker, railroad, or maritime worker (there are special programs for these employees)

To confirm that you are eligible for workers’ comp, you can call a workers’ compensation lawyer for a complimentary case review. If you are not eligible, for any reason, it is possible that you have other options, such as underinsured programs or a personal injury claim. Bear in mind that if you were injured by a third party, who is also not an employee at your workplace, you may qualify for a personal injury claim in addition to workers’ compensation.

Deadlines to Filing a Claim

To file for workers’ compensation, you must initiate the process within a certain period of time. Failure to meet these deadlines can result in a denial of your claim. Some deadlines are less than 30 days which is why it is prudent to not delay your pursuit. If you have never filed for workers’ comp, you might want to get advice from a workers’ compensation lawyer.

Benefits You May Be Eligible For

Workers’ compensation is meant to compensate injured or ill workers and prevent them from undue hardship during their recovery. If you qualify for workers’ comp benefits, you may receive:

  • A percentage of your wages or salary
  • Temporary or permanent disability
  • Rehabilitation and training
  • Reimbursement for travel costs
  • Paid medical care

You will not be eligible for non-economic damages. Rest assured, a lawyer should review your case in full to determine whether or not this is applicable for you.

Talk with a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer to Learn About Your Rights

Anyone can file for workers’ comp on their own; however, the process is easier said than done, and errors are common. One mistake can cause your claim to be denied. Furthermore, it is possible that you will be given less than what you need to recover from your injury or illness. A lawyer may prevent this from happening. To protect all of your interests, call a Port St. Lucie workers’ compensation lawyer today.

Contact us today for a free consultation so we can discuss your situtaion.  It is not only important to talk to an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer when you have been hurt on the job, it is also the best way to make sure that you receive proper medical services and lost wages you are entitled to under the law. After all, the Workers’ Compensation law was created to protect you – the employee.

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.
