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 & Estrada, 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 Frank & Estrada, P.A. is dedicated to helping injured workers.

At Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada, 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
I can't express how grateful I am for Elizabeth Estrada, attorney, and Elizabeth Cantin, secretary, for all the hard work in order to defend me in my time of need. My lawyer and secretary spent time explaining each step and what was to be expected. Because of this I felt a part of the whole process and understood what was going on. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
