Slip and Fall Attorneys to Help with Your Workplace Injuries
Falls are a common cause of workplace injuries. If you slip and fall at work, you may be entitled to pursue a workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury claim, depending on the circumstances of your accident.
- Workers’ compensation benefits in Florida are meant to protect people who are hurt at work, regardless of whether negligence was the cause of the accident. However, workers’ comp claims can be complex and require injured workers to see a doctor chosen by the Employer and Employer’s insurance company. In addition, there are strict deadlines you must meet when filing for workers’ compensation benefits.
- Personal injury claims, under certain circumstances, may also be pursued in addition to workers’ comp benefits if negligence on the part of a company other than your employer caused you to slip and fall at work. For example, if you were hurt in a fall at a construction site that was due to another subcontractor or other company’s negligence, you may also be able to pursue a “third-party” injury claim.
If you fell and were hurt on the job, you need to speak with an attorney who has experience handling both personal injury cases and workers’ compensation claims.
