Delray BeachWorkers' Compensation Attorney

LAW FIRM FOR Work Injuries

Delray Beach is home to workers from all over the world. Our community values all individuals from part-timers on work visas, construction workers, teachers, restaurant employees, lawn and pool maintenance workers, hotel staff, and office workers. Regardless of your field of work, if you’re injured on the job, you have the right to file workers’ compensation. Unfortunately, accidents do happen on the job site or within the workplace. If you are unable to return to work from a recent workplace injury or have suffered from a workplace mishap that has caused bodily disfigurement, permanent damage to your vision or your ability to walk, your employer’s insurance is responsible for compensating you.

Workers’ CompensationPotential Damages

Workers’ comp is designed to take care of:

  • Medical bills and treatment
  • Lost wages
  • Medical Equipment
  • Prescriptions

Workers’ compensation also pays for funeral costs and provides benefits to the family in the case of an on-the-job death. There are varying degrees of workers’ comp available and it truly depends on the severity of the injury and time spent away from work to learn about the benefits you are capable of receiving.

Workers’ CompensationStatute of Limitations

Workers’ comp is mandated by law in the state of Florida to reduce the number of lawsuits against business owners. If you fall victim to an injury, once you claim workers’ compensation with your employer’s insurance company, you are not permitted to sue your employer for any further medical expenses or loss of wages that you may endure after the settlement. That’s why it’s important to work alongside a Delray Beach workers compensation lawyer who will research all of what’s entitled to you before you sign any agreements. Statutes of limitations for workers’ comp claims are a two-year minimum from the date of injury. Meaning, workers cannot claim benefits for medical treatment or sue their employer for lost wages after two years.

Workers’ CompensationWhat To Do Next

  • During your time of recovery in the first two years, be sure to document everything.
  • Photographing the extent of your workplace injury is valuable proof of the suffering you’ve endured.
  • Collect all copies of your medical bills and costs for traveling to and from the hospital.
  • If there are any witnesses or medical personnel who assisted you immediately after your injury, collect written statements as well.

Between family vacations, barbeques, and the relentless Florida heat, the pool becomes a sanctuary for many people needing a little R&R.

That said, any person is at risk of an unintentional swimming pool accident if negligence or recklessness occurs.
