Fort Lauderdale Worker's Compensation

Fort Lauderdale Worker's Compensation LawyerFort Lauderdale Worker's Comp AttorneyWorker's Compensation

Workers' compensation benefits are available in every state to employees who have been hurt within the scope of their employment. The Florida worker’s compensation statute prescribes that employers with upwards of four employees must carry insurance for employees’ work-related injuries. Employers are further required to pay the entire cost of the insurance premium, thereby taking the financial burden off employees. Should an employee become injured on the job, the worker’s compensation insurance provides for payment of medical bills and wages foregone as a result of the workplace injury.

Workers' compensation programs are “no-fault.” This means that injured employees can receive benefits without the need to prove that the accident causing the injury was someone else's fault. In Florida an estimated 100,000 workers are injured on the job and apply for benefits each year. The State of Florida Workers Compensation Program covers a wide range of injuries arising from accidents as well as job-related illnesses, including occupational illness or diseases occurring over a period of time as a result of exposure to hazardous substances, environmental conditions, or repetitive body motion.

State statutes govern the benefits available to you, set limits on amounts awarded and time limits for filing workers compensation claims.

Workers compensation benefits available to you may include:

  • Lump-Sum Tax Free Settlements
  • Medical Expenses
  • Payment for lost wages
  • Physical rehabilitation and training
  • Death benefits for a spouse and surviving dependents

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
