Work-related injuries cause more than pain. Rather, your life path stops and is ushered upon a different course. Moreover, permanent injuries plague you long after you stop working. As your experienced Fort Myers work injury attorney, I understand and want to help.
Work Injury Attorney Addresses Your Compensation Needs.
After you’re injured,you immediately seek medical attention. Your health is absolutely priority one. Consequently, you and your family need money for bills outside medical and hospital expenses. As your work injury attorney, I’m seeking all compensation you deserve and doing so quickly.
For example, if you qualify, wage replacement benefits begin on day eight for partial or total disability. Moreover, you won’t receive wage replacement benefits during your first week. However, this changes if you suffer disabling injuries more than 21 days due to work-related injury or illness. Accordingly, while I’m pursuing relief on day one as your work injury attorney, there is a mandatory temporary delay by law.
Although you get wage loss benefits from workers compensation, they are not complete. Instead, by law, wage replacement benefits equal two-thirds your regular weekly wage. Moreover, your benefit is not higher than Florida’s average weekly wage. Accordingly, your first benefit check comes within 21 days after injury notification. And, you receive checks every two weeks thereafter.
As your work injury attorney, I make sure there are no delays or interruptions.
Work Injury Attorney Pursues Additional Financial Compensation Sources
In major workplace accident claims, there may be additional compensation sources. As your Fort Myers work injury attorney, I fight for all money you deserve. Accordingly, depending on your circumstances, there may be more than workers compensation available.
Let’s face it, many workers comp benefits are small. Moreover, work comp doesn’t include pain and suffering. However, money damages may be payable if you suffer harm by a non-employer party. If a person or business—not your employer or co-worker—caused your injuries, then you may seek additional money damages.
In these additional claims, you may receive money for pain and suffering. And, you may receive back pay and medical bills unpaid by workers compensation insurance. Accordingly, hiring me as your experienced work injury attorney is an important step.
