Tampa Workers' Compensation Lawyer
Have You Been Injured On the Job?
Many jobs exist which are less than safe for the employees who dedicate their professional lives to completing the tasks set forth by their workforce employers. Unfortunately, jobsite injuries are an all too common occurrence in the state of Florida, and in many cases serious injuries result from the accidents that take place at work. For these reasons, workers' compensation is a form of insurance that was established to protect both the employees and employers of worksite accidents and injuries. Essentially, this type of insurance allows for a tradeoff between the injured employee and the business. Medical benefits and wage replacements will be given to workers who are injured on the Job in exchange for the employee's relinquishment of the right to sue their employer.
The legal tradeoff between employee and employer is known as "the compensation bargain," and it essentially provides for financial and medical benefits on one end, while ensuring the protection of a business on the other. However, the compensation plans will differ depending on the company issuing the insurance coverage; in some cases this proves to be adequate for the coverage needed, but in others the financial and medical allowances allotted are nowhere near enough to account for an injured person's time off or medical expenses.
After any type of workplace injury, whether it resulted in injury to the spinal cord, brain, or something more minor, a trained and qualified personal injury attorney should be contacted for legal assistance.
After a Workplace Injury
There can be no downplaying the severity that a worksite accident and injury can cause. Traumatic brain injuries or damages to the spinal cord could quickly lead to debilitating circumstances for the victim, sometimes enough so to permanently prevent them from ever working again. In fact, wrongful death cases can even transpire from an accident that occurred on the Job. Unfortunately, employers and insurance companies do not always pay out the compensation rightfully owed to their injured workers. Therefore, having an attorney on your side after any types of workplace accident that left you injured will be absolutely crucial to the outcome of your case.
Administrative law judges are employed to help determine the allotment of financial and medical benefits required after an accident and injury. Disputes with your workers' comp insurance agency may be brought before the administrative courts, where having a professional personal injury lawyer on your side could greatly increase your chances of a positive case outcome.
