Miami Worker’s Compensation Attorneys

With a principal office in Miami, numerous other offices across Florida, and the willingness to make house calls, we will be there when you need us.

There are many reasons why you should contact a lawyer if you have been injured on the job. Florida workers’ compensation laws are very complex and have been interpreted over the years by numerous court rulings. Without the guidance of an experienced lawyer, you could end up damaging your case without realizing it. If this is the first time you have been injured on the job, your inexperience could result in your claim being denied, even though you may be too injured to return to work.

Workers compensation covers all types of injuries, including back injuries, neck injuries, and occupational illnesses. An experienced lawyer can also analyze your injury case to find out if you may be eligible for additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the party who injured you. While you cannot sue your employer or a co-worker for noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering, you can sue some third parties who are responsible for your injury or illness. For example, you may sue:

  • A delivery truck driver who injures you
  • A contractor or vendor working for another company at the same job site who injures you
  • A negligent driver who injures you in an auto accident that occurs in the scope of your employment
  • The company that made a harmful chemical that injures you at work
  • The company that made a dangerous or defective product or machine that injures you at work

Workers’ compensation benefits are limited to medical benefits, lost wages, re-employment services (if you cannot return to your old job), and payments for permanent disability. However, filing a personal injury lawsuit will enable you to obtain additional compensation for intangible losses such as pain and suffering. Our attorneys can help you to get a second medical opinion, get you a doctor’s appointment, get your back wages, get your prescriptions, and settle your claim.
