Work injuries don’t just occur in hazardous jobs; they can happen across all work settings. While your employer should take care to mitigate the risk of an injury arising by providing a safe workplace and adhering to OSHA standards, employees could still be at risk for accidents. We know that you will be plagued with a variety of questions, so contacting a lawyer will be in your best interest. 

What benefits does workers compensation offer?

Workers compensation is a form of insurance that benefits employees who fall ill or become injured on the job. In the state of Florida, any business with four or more employees is required to have workers compensation insurance. Workers compensation insurance covers:

  • Medical Expenses
  • A Portion of Lost Wages
  • Disability Benefits
  • Job Retraining
  • Funeral Expenses

What should I do if I receive a denial for my workers compensation benefits?

There can be nothing more frustrating than to learn that your workers compensation case has been denied. Experiencing the devastating impact of a work-related injury can be difficult enough; to learn that your case has been denied and can be stressful and frustrating. Common reasons workers compensation cases might be declined include:

  • You waited too long to report the injury
  • You had a preexisting condition
  • Suspected use of drugs and alcohol
  • Your employer disputes the claim
  • There were no witnesses to confirm the accident
  • Your report of the accident differed from medical documentation

Why would I need a Palm Beach Gardens workers compensation attorney if benefits are available through my employer?

You may be wondering why you might need a lawyer, especially considering workers compensation insurance is legally required in most states. While you might not always require a lawyer, in some cases, they may play a pivotal role in your case. Lawyers can help employees understand the process of workers comp, assist in ensuring that the claim has been adequately managed, and build a case that allows an employee to receive the benefits they are entitled to. 

Why would I receive a lump sum settlement?

If entitled to a settlement, you may be able to receive either a structured settlement or a lump sum. Following an injury, your employer may offer a lump sum settlement to cover the expenses of the accident, which is intended to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and more. In exchange, you will agree to no longer pursue further compensation. 

While at first glance an accident involving workers compensation may seem fairly straightforward, they may be far more challenging than you initially thought.

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.
