If you have been injured on the job or have developed an illness because of hazardous substances in your workplace, finding the right legal representation can be critical to your success in obtaining fair compensation for yourself and your family. In many cases, employers are motivated to deny workers’ compensation claims because of fears about increased insurance rates and other financial factors. Enlisting the help of a qualified Boynton Beach workers’ compensation lawyer can provide you with real support in pursuing your claim and obtaining the financial resources you need to deal with medical bills and other expenses associated with your on-the-job injury or illness.
One of the first steps your Boynton Beach workers’ compensation lawyer will take when pursuing your case is collecting information from you and your employer about your working conditions, duties and the extent of your injuries or the nature of your illness. Saving all your doctor’s bills and documenting the time lost from work can help your attorney provide the most effective representation for your case. Your attorney will also consult with your physician and with other medical experts to demonstrate that your injuries or illnesses were caused by workplace conditions. Florida is a no-fault state for workers’ compensation. This means that your lawyer will not have to prove that your employer was negligent, which can make it much easier for you to prove your case in and out of court.
Depending on the type of injury or illness, your employer may try to prove that your health issues were not the result of your working conditions. Your Boynton Beach workers’ compensation lawyer can provide the evidence necessary to convince insurance adjusters and employers to settle your case and to obtain fair compensation for you. By taking an assertive stance during these negotiations, your attorney can even the odds for you and can present your case in the most effective way on your behalf.
