An aggressive workers compensation attorney in West Palm Beach, Florida from the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt represents injured employees to ensure they receive the maximum benefits for their damages. Workers compensation is intended to protect workers by providing them with benefits in the wake of a workplace injury, but all too often the worker’s best interests are not considered. This can translate to the worker receiving significantly less compensation than they deserve. Contact us immediately to speak with a West Palm Beach workers comp attorney before moving forward with your claim. We offer a no-obligation consultation to review cases and determine if we may be able to make a difference in the outcome.
What is the statute of limitations?
The statute of limitations is a deadline imposed by the state of Florida by which injured workers must file a workers’ compensation claim following a workplace injury. If the worker misses that deadline, they forfeit their right to recover their damages regardless of the severity of their injury.
In some cases, this can be tricky timing because the extent of the worker’s injury may not be apparent until sometime after the accident. When our West Palm Beach workers compensation attorney represents a client, they determine the optimum time to file a claim in order to maximize financial coverage for the damages. If necessary, future damages will be included in the claim. Our workers comp attorney has the experience and expert resources available to document the manner and cost of future treatments to ensure the claimant is not cheated out of their rightful workers comp benefits.
Can I get additional benefits if my injury turns out to be more serious than I thought?
If an injured worker files for workers’ comp and agrees to the benefits package offered to them, they can no longer apply for additional benefits for the same injury. This is one of the primary reasons why it’s important to consult an experienced and aggressive workers compensation attorney in West Palm Beach from the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt
If you sustained a serious injury while on the job, do not agree to a benefits package before talking to our workers comp attorney during a free consultation. If you are currently hospitalized from your injury, our workers comp attorney can meet with you in your room or else discuss your case over the phone. Call us today to learn more about how we may be able to help you get the maximum amount of workers comp benefits.
When should I file my workers’ comp claim?
It’s important to file your workers’ comp claim as soon as possible after you sustained your injury. Though you may be best served by consulting a West Palm Beach workers compensation attorney before agreeing to a benefits package, you should get the process started because if you wait too long to file a claim, you may miss the deadline established by your company’s workers comp insurance carrier. After contacting our workers comp attorney, the deadlines you are facing can be clarified after a review of your circumstances.
