Pensacola Workers' Compensation

An accident suffered on the job can be devastating, saddling you with significant bills, decreased income from time out of work, and possibly dent your ability to earn money in the future, if the injury is serious enough.Thankfully there is workers’ compensation insurance to help out, but sometimes you don’t get the full compensation your injuries require.

At the Morgan & Morgan office in Pensacola, our attorneys have seen just how quickly a workplace injury can derail a person’s life. Pensacola is known for white sand beaches, the Naval Air Station, and being the home of the Blue Angels, but the city is also home to manufacturing plants where workplace injuries can easily occur.

If you were injured on the job in Pensacola don’t let your injury derail your life. You are entitled to a certain amount of compensation, and having an experienced workers’ compensation attorney by your side can help ensure that. There is no cost for a consultation on your case, and you will never pay us a cent unless we win your case. Contact us today by filling out a no-risk case review form.

  • Workplace Accidents: Cases Our Attorneys Handle

    Our attorneys handle on-the-job injury claims involving, but not limited to, the following:

    • Muscular injuries, broken bones, torn ligaments, torn rotator cuffs, and herniated disks from lifting, pushing, or other actions
    • Sickness from exposure to toxins, including occupational diseases like mesothelioma or Black Lung
    • Head injuries like concussions or traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) from falling objects or falls
    • Tendonitis or other repetitive motion injuries
    • Construction accidents
    • Hearing loss or damage
    • Cold and heat stress or burn injuries from accidents like electrocution
    • Assorted injuries to the back, spinal cord, shoulder, eyes, knees, neck, hip, respiratory organs, ankles, wrists, feet, and hands

    This list isn’t exhaustive. Any injury sustained by an employee on the job is considered work related. Even if the injury was your fault you are still entitled to workers’ compensation because it is a no-fault system.

  • What to Do After Being Injured on the Job

    Unfortunately, Florida workers’ compensation claims do not always proceed as they should, and can be fully or partially denied for a number of reasons:

    • The attending doctor (who is typically chosen by the employer) determines that the worker does not have a significant injury, despite complaints of serious pain.
    • Even though the worker is clearly injured, the employer determines that the injury did not take place on the job. For instance, the employer suggests that the worker injured their back at home and simply reported it as a work injury.
  • Benefits Available for Injured Florida Workers

    If you are injured on the job, you are entitled to certain benefits. The benefits you may be able to receive depend on your injury, and how severe it was. Some of the benefits you may be able to receive include:

    • Injured workers are entitled to receive necessary medical treatment free of charge.
    • A worker who is temporarily disabled is entitled to receive biweekly wage loss benefits for up to two years or until they can return to work.
    • A worker who is partially disabled – that is unable to perform their previous job but still able to perform a less demanding job – is entitled to wage loss benefits for the difference if the pay rate of their new position is less than 80 percent of that of their former position until they are able to return.
    • If a worker is still partially disabled after reaching maximum medical improvement, they can continue to receive 75 percent of their benefits for an amount of time determined by the severity of their remaining disability.

    In most cases, you should be able to rely on your employer and their insurer to adequately compensate you for your workplace injury. However, if you suspect you are not receiving the benefits you are entitled to it may be time to consider your legal options.

    At Morgan & Morgan, our workers’ compensation attorneys know what not receiving adequate compensation looks like, and can work to make sure that does not stand. They have a successful track record of getting employees the compensation they need to recover and move on with their lives.

    If your employer is denying your claim, forcing you back to work too early, or claiming that your recovery is progressing too slowly, fill out our free, no-risk case evaluation to find out how one of our lawyers in Pensacola may be able to help.
