Workers' Compensation Attorney in Tampa

Injuries sustained in the workplace can have long-term effects on your health or that of your loved ones. The most common effect we’ve seen from the thousands of cases we’ve handled in Tampa, Florida, and throughout the nation is that most people are unable to go back to work for a very long time. In fact, some are never able to work again.

We’ve also seen cases where people spend a lot of money to get the treatment they need after getting injured on the job. Some of these people never recover financially.

But what most people don’t realize is that they may be entitled to some form of compensation through their employer’s insurance carrier. That’s what is commonly known as workers’ compensation insurance. It covers injuries sustained on the job.

However, getting compensation for these injuries is never an easy process. That’s where a Tampa workers’ compensation lawyer from our team comes in to provide the legal help you need to navigate this process and ensure you receive the compensation you need and deserve.

  • What Are Workers’ Compensation Benefits?

    These are financial and medical benefits provided to employees who are injured or become ill in the course of their employment. These benefits aim to cover medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and a portion of lost wages.

  • What Injuries Does Workers Compensation Benefits Cover?

    In most cases, these benefits may cover the following injuries:   

    • Fractures and sprains
    • Back and neck injuries
    • Repetitive stress injuries
    • Burns and scalds
    • Head and brain injuries
    • Eye injuries
    • Amputations
    • Respiratory conditions from workplace exposure

    Keep in mind that these injuries must have been sustained while on the job or aggravated by the job itself.

  • What Are Examples of Illnesses Workers’ Comp Insurance May Cover?

    Besides physical injuries, this insurance may also cover the following illnesses:  

    • Occupational diseases (e.g., lung diseases from workplace exposure)
    • Poisoning from workplace chemicals
    • Infectious diseases contracted at work (e.g., COVID-19 for certain professions)
    • Stress-related illnesses, if work-related stress is excessive and documented
  • Can I Get Compensation for My Pain and Suffering?

    Unfortunately, workers’ comp does not cover pain and suffering. But you may be able to file a lawsuit in cases involving a third party or gross employer negligence, which allows you to recover non-economic damages such as pain and suffering.

  • Can I Get Compensation if I Was at Fault for the Accident?

    Yes, you can, and that’s because workers' compensation is a no-fault system. However, keep in mind that this eligibility may not apply to intentionally self-inflicted injuries or injuries resulting from drugs or alcohol.

  • What if I Cannot Afford To Hire a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer?

    Our lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you can still seek legal representation without immediate upfront costs. In other words, the fee is free unless we win.
