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.
