Workers’ Compensation

Our Firm has extensive experience in the field of Workers’ Compensation Law. That background includes representation of small businesses and employers, but also injured workers. Knowing the system from both perspectives gives our team a better understanding of the case and challenges that may be presented.

Workers’ Compensation provides benefits for those employees who get injured or sick from a work-related cause. In Florida, this primarily means wage loss for the period of time someone is taken off of work and payment of medical bills that are directly related to the alleged on the job injury. Florida law requires that every employer with four or more employees carry workers’ compensation insurance.

Employers & Small Business: Our team of lawyers has experience with defense of employers going back to 1994. We understand the stresses and challenges that a claim from an employee can make to a small business. We also know the defenses that can be asserted and well as cost-saving strategies that can be deployed in certain circumstances.
