Workers' Compensation Law Is All We Do
Following a work accident, you will likely have injuries, encounter medical expenses, insurance issues, or the accident could even involve an unfortunate death. We will pursue proper compensation.
When trying to recover for a work accident, you will almost always be dealing with an insurance company. The goal of the insurance adjuster is to minimize the expense to the insurance company and save the insurance company as much money as possible. Without an attorney, the process proceeds completely on the insurance company’s terms. This scenario will never yield the best possible result for you. Your attorney’s job is to level the playing field. The main goal is to ensure you receive proper medical care and settle your claim to maximize your recovery. If you have been involved in a work accident, you should contact a workers' compensation attorney quickly to ensure you recover all compensation to which you are entitled.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE IN AN ACCIDENT
If you have a work accident—
See a doctor right away to make sure that you are diagnosed and treated, and to ensure that your complaints are documented.
Keep records of the expenses you incur as a result of the accident and copies of all paperwork.
Speak to an attorney as soon as possible to ascertain your legal rights.
Avoid giving an interview to the insurance company adjuster without first speaking to an attorney.

South Florida Workers' Compensation Attorney
What to expect in our first meeting
Meeting with a workers' compensation attorney shouldn't be an intimidating experience.
Rather it should be useful. In our office, we collect information about your case and help clients to be well informed and comfortable when they come in for an initial consultation. We share important information in at least two ways and develop your case to best handle it for your unique situation.
When you first walk into our office, we'll sit down and go over the reason for your visit. We will discuss your case with one of our attorneys. If you speak Spanish, you will discuss your case with a Spanish-speaking attorney. One of our staff members will collect information about you and your situation. We will ask you specific questions about your background, your employment, and your injury. Our interview will be extensive and in detail, to obtain the most complete information about your situation. When we are well informed, it allows us to better prepare your case. At the close of the meetings, we may have some tasks for you to do and help us follow up after our meeting, and we will also be running a series of processes after our meeting to start your case as soon as possible.
What should you bring to our first meeting?
You do not need to bring anything to the meeting. However, it is helpful to bring documentation relevant to your situation. For example:
A copy of a document showing the exact name and address of your employer (this allows us to clearly identify the employer involved).
Medical records or reports related to your injury (this allows us to identify who diagnosed you and details that may not have been mentioned compared to the information you provided at the meeting).
Documents about your salary or other records related to current employment income (these documents are very important in determining the size of each disability check you may receive under workers' compensation).
Information or documentation from your employer's insurance company (your employer's insurance company pays your benefits and we file your claim against that insurance company).
Identifying information and statements of witnesses who were present at the time of the injury (if there is a dispute about the accident, the witnesses can help us win your case).
A list of questions that you have prepared (the attorney will answer your questions at the end of your meeting with the attorney).
Again, you may not have this information when we first meet. We will work with you to find out how to obtain this information if you need it. Due to our extensive experience, our attorneys routinely obtain important documents and materials relevant to your case.
