Make the workers' compensation system work for you

Every day, Florida residents go to work knowing that they could be injured. Employers are required to adhere to certain safety protocols, and many do, but not all potential hazards can be completely eliminated. Accidents still happen, and that is why the workers' compensation system exists.

However, obtaining the benefits that you need during your recovery is not always an easy task. Benefits could be denied or be inadequate. It would be a good idea to involve a Florida workers' compensation attorney in the process as soon as possible. He or she can help you make the system work for you.

Beyond guiding you through the benefits process, your attorney might identify third parties who bear some responsibility for your injuries. If the equipment you are tasked to use in the performance of your job duties was defective or malfunctioning, the manufacturer, distributor or maintenance personnel might be held liable. If your employer fails to ensure that you are not working under dangerous conditions, or if a co-worker caused or contributed to your injuries, a personal injury claim might be appropriate. These are just some of the details that your attorney will investigate.

Serious injuries can have a profound effect on your ability to work, perform daily activities and provide for your family. Workers' compensation benefits might only be the start of the restitution you could receive, depending on the circumstances of the accident that injured you. You should be free to focus on your recovery while your attorney handles these matters on your behalf.
