Workplace Injuries in West Palm Beach
Claiming Workers' Compensation Benefits in Florida
A worker in virtually any industry can be at risk of injury through accidents, particularly if there are safety violations or hazardous work conditions present. Repetitive motion, heavy lifting and physical labor can also cause a worker to suffer from an injury. If you or someone you know has been injured at work or in the course of employment, it is important for you to consider your legal options in filing a workers' compensation or personal injury claim. In order to do so, you should not hesitate to consult with a
West Palm Beach injury attorney today.
Most work injuries are covered by workers' compensation, but there are some situations in which an attorney may be able to assist you in filing a third party lawsuit as well. This can apply in situations in which a third party was responsible for your injuries, such as a visitor to the company, a vendor or the manufacturer of a defective product. In work-related car accidents, this can be the other driver that caused the collision. Accordingly, your attorney might be able to file a personal injury claim or lawsuit on your behalf against this person or entity, possibly in addition to seeking and recovering
workers' compensation benefits.
