Workers’ Compensation

Experiencing a workplace injury is a harsh reality that impacts a significant number of employees annually, with over 4.2 medically consulted injuries recorded in 2021 by the National Safety Council. Whether you’re in a high-risk occupation like construction or manufacturing or caught off guard by an unexpected workplace injury, Attorney Garnes is here to assist you in obtaining the compensation you rightfully deserve.

Some employers may attempt to shift blame for an accident to avoid the financial burdens resulting from an injury. If your company is responsible, Attorney Garnes is committed to holding them accountable while you focus on your recovery.

Even if you believe your injury isn’t covered by workers’ compensation, consulting with a Florida workers’ compensation attorney is crucial. Certain injuries may qualify for coverage, even if they occurred off-site. For example, running an errand at your employer’s request or walking through the company’s parking lot might entitle you to workers’ compensation. We aim to ensure you receive the full benefits, making the financial aspect of recovery more manageable.

In the event of an incident on company property or during work hours, follow these steps:

  • Severe Injury: Call 911 immediately.
  • Non-severe Injury: Assess the pain and decide if a hospital visit is necessary.
  • Document the Scene: Take pictures of the area, regardless of visible causes.
  • Witnesses: Make note of anyone present, as they may provide witness statements.
  • Documentation: Keep records of doctor visits, medications, and paperwork.
  • Contact Attorney Garnes: Discuss your situation and determine necessary actions for compensation.

Determining liability for injuries, especially regarding workers’ compensation protection, can be intricate. Attorney Garnes is here to help you evaluate the situation and outline a course of action.

Workers’ compensation settlements may encompass:

  • Medical Expenses: Covering hospital stays, medications, exams, tests, and physical therapy. Settlements can also include medical accessories like crutches and walkers.
