Workplace Injury Cases We Handle

Workers’ compensation can mean a lot of different things when dealing with filing a claim. Our attorneys handle claims involving a number of injuries that happen on the job. This can include:

  • 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, falls, etc.;
  • Tendonitis or other repetitive motion injuries;
  • Construction accidents;
  • Hearing loss or damage;
  • Cold and heat stress or burn injuries from accidents like electrocution; and
  • Assorted injuries to the back, spinal cord, shoulder, eyes, knees, neck, hip, respiratory organs, ankles, wrists, feet and hands.

There are other workplace injuries we handle, too. Ultimately, the specifics of your injury will determine whether you have a case to make a claim.

How Can a Morgan & Morgan Attorney Help Me File a Claim?

The most important thing you can do after sustaining an injury on the job — especially if you have a particularly complicated claim — is to have an attorney with a comprehensive understanding of the claims process. That way, you can rest easy after an injury, while we’re the ones seeking the benefits you are entitled to. Your attorney can:

  • Explain the claims process and guide you through each and every step.
  • Help you get the necessary resources and documentation.
  • Handle discussions with your employer and/or your employer’s insurance company.
  • Help officially file your benefits claim.

In addition, if your claim is rejected or undervalued, your attorney can help appeal that decision.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits Denied?

In some cases, an employer’s insurance company will deny an injured worker the right to any benefits at all. This can happen for a number of reasons: insurers could accuse the worker of misrepresenting the injury, blame the injury on a pre-existing condition, or even claim the worker didn’t sustain the injury on the job.

If you appeal a decision, your attorney will be required to file a petition with the Division of Administrative Hearings. Your case will be assigned to a judge who schedules a hearing. In this hearing, both sides can present information (including evidence and witnesses) supporting their position. The judge, using this information, makes a decision.

If the judge also denies your appeal for benefits, your attorney may file a second appeal with the Florida First District Court of Appeals, where the information is presented in front of a different judge or panel of judges.
