When to Call a Personal Injury Attorney
Don’t accept a workers’ compensation settlement in Florida after a bad work-related accident without first discussing your options with an attorney. Workers’ comp might be an easy way to recover, but it could shortchange you for your losses. A personal injury suit against a negligent party, on the other hand, could lead to the full reimbursement of all your past and future losses. A workplace injury is always worth a discussion with a lawyer before you make a decision. That way you know for sure you’re making the right choice in accepting a settlement.
Your Rights Under Florida Law
Every year, thousands of workers in Florida end up in emergency rooms with occupational injuries and illnesses. If you’re one of them, you have two main recovery options: a workers’ compensation settlement or a personal injury claim. Workers’ comp could reimburse you for two-thirds of your lost wages, plus your medical expenses and any wrongful death damages. An injury claim, on the other hand, could pay you for 100% of your lost wages, disability costs, property damages, legal fees, and pain and suffering. The difference between the two is that you will have to prove negligence to win an injury claim, while this isn’t a requirement for workers’ compensation.
