Many industries present a significant risk of injuries, such as construction, oil and gas, manufacturing, transportation, and more. However, injuries can occur at any job, including to employees who work in an office. When you suffer a work-related illness or injury, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company should provide coverage for your medical costs, lost wages, and other related costs.
Many injured or ill workers file a claim, expecting to start receiving benefits soon. Instead, they receive a denial of their claim or much lower benefits than they believe they deserved. In addition, some people may still be unable to go back to work and undergoing medical treatment, but their benefits are suddenly canceled. In these situations, it is critical that you call a Florida workers’ compensation lawyer at Quattrochi and Torres as soon as possible.
In order for workers’ compensation to provide benefits, your injury must be work-related. Some common on-the-job injuries and illnesses include:
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue injuries
- Back injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Other repetitive use injuries
- Crush injuries
- Eye and ear injuries
- Toxic exposure
- Injuries from traffic accidents
When you’re injured, you should report the injury to your employer right away and seek medical attention. Do not hesitate to contact Quattrochi and Torres for help filing your initial claim.
Workers’ compensation insurers can deny or limit claims for many different reasons. No matter what the reason, the important thing is that you have the right lawyer to help you appeal and get the benefits you deserve.
