Workers' Compensation

If you were injured at work, you are entitled to worker's compensation benefits. You have the right to recover compensation through your employer's insurance company, regardless of fault.

At Friedman, Rodman & Frank, P.A., we offer a strong voice for clients with work-related injuries. Our law firm is committed to helping injured workers recover the full amount of worker's compensation benefits they are entitled to receive.

We also pursue additional compensation for injured workers if a third party such as subcontractor or manufacturer can also be held liable for their injuries. Put our years of experience and legal resources to work for you. Contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation with a skilled Miami worker's compensation attorney.

Pursuing the Maximum Amount of Worker's Compensation Benefits

Employers in Florida are obligated to carry worker's compensation insurance. This provides employers with a safeguard when employees become injured on-the-job. Workers have a right to obtain worker's compensation benefits for all types of work-related injuries such as:

  • Neck, back, shoulder and knee injuries
  • Head trauma injuries
  • Neurological injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paraplegia and quadriplegia
  • Repetitive stress injuries/carpal tunnel
  • Hand and feet injuries
  • Vision and hearing loss
  • Work-related heart attack or stroke
  • Psychiatric injuries
  • Chemical burns

The amount of worker's compensation benefits individuals can obtain varies greatly. Our law firm will work with your doctors to understand the extent of your injuries. Part of our focus includes identifying how your work-related injuries have threatened your ability to continue working in any or similar capacity. Our detailed focus helps us determine the types of benefits you qualify for, such as permanent total disability benefits, temporary total disability benefits, temporary partial disability benefits or impairment benefits, and medical care, specialists, etc.

We are committed to helping you obtain the full amount of benefits you are entitled to for your past and future medical care and lost wages. We are also available to help you determine if you would like to receive your benefits over time or as a lump sum settlement. The laws and rules concerning worker's compensation are complicated and are always changing. We remain at the cutting edge of the law so we can best secure your rights.

A 31-year-old worker fell approximately 20 feet from a scaffold and sustained multiple injuries. We were successful in obtaining a court award of permanent total disability benefits for the injured worker, despite the fact that no physician precluded him entirely from work. This was a notable achievement, given the worker's young age. We will apply our record of success to your advantage.
Handling Third-party Claims for Injured Workers

The Law Firm of Friedman Rodman and Frank is dedicated to helping injured workers. If a party unconnected with your own employer such as a contractor, subcontractor, manufacturer or another third party was responsible in whole or part in causing your work accident., you have an opportunity to recover additional compensation through a personal injury claim.

At Friedman, Rodman & Frank, P.A., we pursue all possible sources of recovery to help secure compensation for your injuries. We will conduct a thorough investigation to determine if a defective product, subcontractor or another third party ultimately caused the accident. If so, we will help you recover maximum compensation for your past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

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.
