Things aren’t as simple as you think when it comes to workers’ compensation claims in Miami.
Have You Been Hurt on the Job?
Worker’s compensation begins when a person gets injured while working. This injury needs to have occurred while you were working, but it does not matter who caused the accident or injury. Unlike personal injury cases, you do not have to prove negligence. However, the law is very confusing and there are many reasons why a case or some benefits are denied. And this is where a legal team can come in handy. Many employers will argue that a worker’s compensation claim is not reasonable, placing the blame (and the expenses) on the employee. Employers and their insurance companies try to save as much money as possible by not advising their employees of all of their rights and benefits. If you have been injured while on the job, you have a right to apply for worker’s compensation. This can help you cover your lost wages as well as medical expenses.
In the event you were injured or hurt badly at an Orlando or Palm Beach work place, you might even be able to get payments for the duration of your life – especially when your injury causes you to be unable to work again.
