How Can a Workers Compensation Lawyer Help Me?
Laws governing the benefits workers are entitled to in the event of serious injury are subject to consistent change, and often leave the people harmed at a disadvantage. If you’ve been hurt on the job, our Orlando workers’ compensation lawyers can evaluate your case for free.
According to a joint report by ProPublica and National Public Radio, Florida lawmakers have cut benefits for severely injured and disabled workers by 65% in the last 20 years. Unfortunately, these cuts mean workers now face greater uncertainty that they will be able to pay their bills and receive the medical care they need through workers’ compensation benefits.
You work hard to provide for your family. If an on-the-job injury robs you of your ability to work, you’re likely facing fear and uncertainty about what the future holds.
The attorneys at Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter believe workers should be fairly compensated if they’re hurt in the course of their regular duties. Our firm is proud to represent the interests of injured workers and their families.
If you’re struggling to navigate the workers’ compensation system, a qualified attorney can help you:
- Properly fill out a claim form and file it in a timely fashion
- Pursue maximum benefits for your injuries
- Negotiate a fair settlement
- Represent you in the event that your claim is denied or a dispute arises with your employer and/or the insurance company
The laws governing workers’ compensation can be difficult to understand, especially for someone whose life has been turned upside-down by a workplace accident.
