Consider the Severity of Your Injuries
All injuries, big and small, can happen at work. If you do sustain a work-related injury, you are entitled to medical care and possibly lost wages. Don’t let your employer tell you if you have been injured or not. Only you know if you have been injured. Our Palm Beach work injury attorneys will review your claim, your injury, your medical records and diagnosis to determine what benefits you are owed and devise a plan to get them for you. If your employer’s workers’ compensation carrier denies your claim, we will fight them on your behalf
Workers’ Compensation Benefits Vary by State
Other factors that influence the types and amount of benefits that a worker is qualified to receive include the state in which their employer is located. Each state has their own guidelines. This can become complicated if an employee works at company with offices located in different states. Also, an employer may try to take advantage of this situation by claiming one state’s guidelines that favor them, despite the accident occurring in another state. Though unusual, these circumstances warrant consulting experienced work injury attorneys in Palm Beach to gain clarity on the matter and protect your rights.
Active Workers’ Compensation Claims
As work injury attorneys in Palm Beach will tell you, obtaining benefits is just the first part. We seek to get injured workers all of the benefits available under the law.
