Workplace injuries occur throughout Florida in almost any type of job imaginable. Florida has a no–fault worker’s compensation system. This means that compensation is available to injured workers, regardless of who caused the accident. Depending on the nature of the injury, an injured worker may be entitled to medical benefits, disability benefits, lost wages, reasonable and necessary travel expenditures related to the injury, and attendant care benefits.

What Does a Workers’ Compensation Attorney Do?

Our attorneys at Woodard & North help workers who were injured on the job and were denied their workers comp claims. Using our experience advocating for workers, we help them navigate the process of trying to recover the money they might rightfully be owed.

Our attorneys handle on-the-job injury claims involving, but not limited to, the following:

  • Muscular injuries, broken bones, torn ligaments, torn rotator cuffs, and herniated disks from lifting, pushing, or other actions;

  • Sickness from exposure to toxins, including occupational diseases like mesothelioma or Black Lung;

  • Head injuries like concussions or traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) from falling objects or falls;

  • Tendonitis or other repetitive motion injuries;

  • Construction accidents;

  • Hearing loss or damage;

  • Cold and heat stress or burn injuries from accidents like electrocution; and

  • Assorted injuries to the back, spinal cord, shoulder, eyes, knees, neck, hip, respiratory organs, ankles, wrists, feet, and hands.

  • Third-party claims: Although workers’ compensation is typically no-fault, employees injured on-the-job by products or machinery could sue the manufacturer of those items to obtain compensation in court (in addition to their filing a standard workers’ compensation claim).
