When Do You Need to Hire a Workplace Injury Attorney?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly 2.4 million workers suffered work-related injuries that required them to visit emergency departments in 2019. That is a staggering number of injured workers for one year.
Workplace accidents can happen for many reasons. Sometimes they are due to someone else’s negligence, but not all the time. Fortunately, you don’t have to prove that your injury was someone else’s fault in Florida because the state functions on a no-fault system for workplace injuries. All you have to prove is that your injury happened while you were at work. You’re not required to prove that someone else was responsible.
Most employers carry worker’s compensation insurance. This insurance is supposed to pay for your medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages. Typically, you cannot sue your employer if they possess worker’s compensation insurance covering your workplace injury damages. However, there are some cases where you may still need to file a third-party claim against someone else that caused your workplace injury.
For instance, let’s say you were driving a truck for a company and got into an automobile accident because of another driver’s negligence. You would be able to file a personal injury claim against that driver and their insurance company. Personal injury claims typically have more value than worker’s compensation, but it depends on the nature of the injury.
In any event, you should contact a workplace injury attorney for further guidance. Even if you think your workplace injury doesn’t entitle you to make a third-party claim, it is better to have a professional legal mind evaluate your case for free. Then you can ensure that you get the most compensation possible for your workplace injury.
