Common Injuries In Work Accident Lawsuits
Workplace injuries run the gamut from minor to life-altering. The following are just some of the types of injuries common to Florida claims:
- Brain and head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Respiratory disease
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Musculoskeletal injuries
- Eye injuries
You may be facing a lifetime of medical expenses if you experienced one of these injuries. You may also be unable to work.
Workers' Comp vs. Injury Claims
Florida Workers' Compensation laws require most types of employers to carry workers' compensation insurance. Companies of a certain size and certain types of employers are exempt, but the vast majority is required to carry it.
Workers' compensation benefits are to be paid out to an injured employee who cannot work. These benefits pay for your medical care and replace a portion of your lost wages. Within the workers' comp system, you cannot sue your employer for negligence. The benefits are awarded to the injured employee on a no-fault basis.
Mr. Canter has helped numerous clients maximize their workers' comp claims. He also knows how to appeal a denied claim and make sure the injured employee is getting all of the compensation they are due.
If you believe your injury was caused by a third party and not your employer, then Mr. Canter may advise you to pursue compensation in an injury claim based on negligence. For example, if the manufacturer of safety equipment you use on the job produced a faulty, defective product, then you may be able to pursue compensation from that manufacturer.
Work Sites Where Injuries Occur
Work injuries occur wherever you work. Any type of injury related to your employment duties can be the subject of this type of claim. Therefore, just about any type of employment could qualify you to pursue a claim for injury compensation, including:
- Construction sites
- Manufacturing plants
- Restaurants and other hospitality businesses
- Retail businesses
Mr. Canter can determine if you have a claim.
