Do I need an attorney to file a workers’ compensation claim in Florida?
While workers’ compensation claims are designed to be straightforward, laws do vary considerably from state to state and have certain procedural requirements. In some instances, workers’ compensation claims can lead to disputes that result in the delay or inappropriate denial of benefits. It is wise to seek the help of a qualified workers’ compensation attorney who will protect your legal rights and ensure you receive the amount of compensation you deserve.
If you belong to a protected group of workers, subject to federal statutes like the FELA, you will need a qualified and experienced attorney to help pursue your claim and help you seek compensation for your work-related injuries and other damages.
In many cases, workers are injured by products, chemicals, or machinery they use in the workplace. In addition to filing a workers’ compensation claim, an injured employee may be eligible to file a third-party lawsuit against the manufacturer of such products to seek compensation for damages not typically covered under workers’ compensation including pain and suffering and punitive damages.
