Whether you are an electrician who sustained a burn injury on a job site in Bradenton, or a Fort Myers school secretary who slipped and fell in a wet entrance at work, you should know you are not alone. Of course, not all of those injured in on-the-job accidents receive the full workers compensation reimbursement to which they are entitled. Filing the paperwork to receive reimbursement for medical care and wages can be confusing. That is why hiring a personal injury attorney who is experienced with handling job related accidents is so important.
Two common forms of job related accidents:
Company Vehicle: Having an accident in a company vehicle while on the job can leave you with major injuries as well as countless questions about who pays for what. It may be hard to get a straight answer from your employer or their insurance provider.
Construction Site Accidents: A construction site accident not only leaves you with injuries, but it can also rob you of the ability to work. Add to that the complication of sorting out whether your insurance or your employer’s should pay for medical bills, lost wages and other expenses, and you have a stressful situation.
If you have been injured at work, we can assist in the following areas:
- filing the appropriate paperwork
- coverage for your medical bills, deductibles and co-pays
- damage to your personal belongings
- workers compensation and lost wages
We work hard to reduce anxiety in an already stressful situation by putting our clients’ needs first. Relax and heal without worrying about filing your claim.
As with any type of injury or accident, do not agree to sign any settlement or discuss your concerns, injuries or damages with anyone other than an attorney. Do not allow anyone representing the insurance company, your doctor, hospital or emergency room to record any statement until after you talk to our office. There is no charge for this initial consultation and We Will Come To You.
We are centrally located in Bradenton, FL which allows us to conveniently serve you no matter where you live in Manatee, Sarasota and surrounding counties on the West Coast of Florida.
