Miami Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Miami-Dade employers are required to carry worker compensation insurance that covers employees who suffer injury while on the job.  Injuries due to work-related traveling, work-related tasks, walking to or from a company parking lot, company sponsored social events, and the like are generally covered under this type of insurance and victims may receive compensation for such injuries, regardless of who is at fault.  If you have suffered any of the following injuries while on the job, or you feel any of them are attributable to your employment, you should contact us for a free consultation on your injury case.

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Back pain or injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Hand or wrist injuries
  • Heart attack
  • Hypertension
  • Burns
  • Shoulder or shoulder pain
  • Headaches

While the benefits you may be entitled to vary according to the nature and extent of your injuries, a worker’s comp claim will typically entitle you to receive medical treatment and lost wages. If you become temporarily unable to work, you may be eligible to receive two-thirds of your average wage up to a certain ceiling. An injury that leaves you permanently unable to return to your job or unable to do any work at all may make you eligible to receive long-term or lump sum benefits.

Additional information can be found on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) website.
