Injuries on the Job Advocating for Employee Rights Throughout Florida

Miami Injury Lawyer

Providing Sound Counsel in Workers’ Compensation throughout Miami & South Florida

Workers’ compensation injuries sustained on the job can be the result of picking up heavy equipment, injuries caused by equipment, automobile accidents while working, slipping and falling chemical burns, poorly enforced safety regulations, or even the actions of fellow employees.

Workers' compensation is a benefit that is available to nearly all employees in Miami who suffer an injury that arose at work or outside of work while in the course of employment. Workers' compensation insurance companies have little incentive to see that your rights to fair and reasonable compensation are considered. Workers’ compensation provides for financial compensation for employees with work-related injuries, in particular, compensation for lost wages and incurred medical costs.

If you were injured on the job, call a Miami employment law attorney at 305.416.5000.
We are ready to visit you at the hospital or at home.

The work-related injuries covered by workers' compensation include:

  • Neck, back, and knee injuries
  • Carpal tunnel (hand or wrist injuries)
  • Hearing problems
  • Eye injuries
  • Disfigurement of hands, face, or neck
  • Scarring of body
  • Work-related emotional problems
  • Work-induced heart attack or stroke
  • Occupational diseases such as asbestosis and dermatitis
