Fort Lauderdale Workers' Comp Accidents

Workplace Accidents & Injuries

As given in both state and federal laws, any injury which occurs at a jobsite or in the workplace, no matter the type of job, is covered by workers' compensation. Unsafe premises, hazardous chemicals, defective equipment and many other unsafe conditions cause workplace injuries. Even with proper precautions, accidents can happen. Fortunately, the workers' compensation system is set up so that it does not matter who was at fault. If the accident was work related, the worker should receive proper compensation. Construction sites are particularly prone to accidents but injury can happen in almost any workplace. Some injuries are mild, requiring little to no treatment and no time away from work.

Some, though, require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation and long periods where a person is unable to be employed. In more extreme cases, such as spinal cord injuries or an injury to the brain, the damage may be permanent with the person no longer able to hold a job. If you or someone you know have been injured in the workplace, it is important to contact a knowledgeable Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer for consultation. If you don't know your rights and benefits under workers' compensation laws, your claim for benefits may be denied. In some cases, the benefits you receive may be less than you deserve.

Weinstein & Scharf, P.A. utilize the law and over 70 combined years of experience to ensure that workers receive the compensation that is owed to them. The workers' compensation system does not always perform the way it is supposed to. Claims are frequently denied and there are many tactics used by insurance companies to prevent or delay claims from being paid. We assist workers through the entire process, from the filing of a claim to resolving a denied claim until your case is finalized. In addition, there may be a third party such as a construction manager, architect, general contractor or property owner who is legally liable for the injury you received.

If that is the case, we are fully prepared to go forward with legal actions against the responsible third party on your behalf. Contact us today.
