Workers' Compensation

If you have been discriminated against on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, or disability, you may have a case under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, or the Florida Civil Rights Act.  Federal and Florida law provide strict timelines for filing a charge of discrimination, so please give us a call to discuss your potential claim.

Our attorneys can also help you if you have been the victim of retaliation for whistle blowing, or because you requested workers' compensation benefits. If you have been terminated, demoted, or otherwise subjected to hostility in the workplace, we may be able to help you.  

Workers' Compensation & Accident attorneys

Most employers are required to maintain workers compensation insurance coverage for their employees. This coverage provides benefits for a portion of lost wages and the costs of medical care. A worker who is hurt or fatally injured while working for an employer is entitled to benefits, even if due to the fault of a co-worker, or even the injured worker him/herself. Benefits are also available to workers who are exposed to dangerous chemicals or products, such as Asbestos.

If you are hurt on the job, you must report your injury to your supervisor immediately, or you may lose benefits. Also, it is against the law to fire an employee because they have been injured on the job or make a workers compensation claim.  If you were fired after an accident, you may be entitled to damages.

We have helped thousands obtain wrongfully denied benefits. If you or a family member were hurt on the job and are not receiving benefits, you should contact us immediately.

If you have been hurt, or a family member was killed due to the negligence of someone else, let us lighten your burden by forcing the negligent party to take responsibility. We offer help to those hurt as a result of:

  • Auto, Boat, Motorcycle or Bicycle accidents;
  • Pedestrian Accidents;
  • Falls; and,
  • Dangerous Products;

  You Cannot Afford to Wait!

Under Florida law, you can lose valuable insurance benefits if you do not see a medical doctor within 14 days of an auto accident.  You should also seek legal advice before speaking with anyone, an insurance company. There is no risk or cost to you.  Our consultation is absolutely free.  

Do you need help obtaining Social Security Disability (SSD), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or other types of Social Security benefits? We can help you with filing an initial claim or appealing a denied claim.

If you have a disability and cannot work, we may be able to help you receive benefits.  You can call or email us to set up a consultation.
