West Palm Beach Workers Compensation Attorneys
According to the National Safety Council, a worker is injured on the job every seven seconds. While many of these injuries are minor and easy to recover from, others can result in lost wages, costly medical bills, and even permanent disability. These situations can put a huge strain on the injured victim and their family. This is why workers’ compensation laws are in place. However, many times an injured worker has trouble obtaining the benefits they deserve from employers and insurance companies.

We also understand that focusing on your physical and emotional recovery is the most important thing. It’s our mission to take the burden of securing fair compensation off your shoulders. Our team of experienced legal professionals will work hard on your behalf so you can focus on what’s important—your health and your family. Contact us at (561) 687-5660 today.
How We Can Help After a Workplace Injury
Employers have a responsibility to provide a safe work environment for their employees. Unfortunately, accidents are inevitable, especially if you work in the manufacturing, transportation, or construction industries. In addition to providing a safe work environment, most employers in the state of Florida are also responsible for carrying workers’ compensation coverage for their employees.
However, sometimes a workers’ compensation claim is denied when an employer disputes a workplace injury or illness. In other cases, a doctor appointed by an employer determines a worker is able to return to work even though their injuries make it hard to do so. If this has happened to you, the attorneys at Scott J. Sternberg & Associates, P.A. can help in a number of ways.
- Filing a Workers’ Comp Claim – After a severe workplace injury, navigating the workers’ compensation process can be difficult. It’s important to understand that you must report the injury to your employer within 30 days of the accident. Then, contact us and our attorneys will help you file a workers’ compensation claim. We’ll ensure all details are accounted for and that the claim is filed correctly. If a dispute arises, we’ll address it.
- Settling Insurance Disputes – It’s common for injured workers to be denied compensation after filing a workers’ comp claim. Sometimes an insurance company or employer will claim an employee’s injuries aren’t as serious as they seem or that the injuries happened off the job. We understand these tactics and will fight hard to protect your rights and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
- Obtain the Correct Benefits – Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may be entitled to certain benefits. In Florida, these include benefits for medical bills and lost wages. There are also temporary total disability, temporary partial disability, and permanent total disability benefits. We’ll examine your medical records and the details surrounding the accident to determine which benefits you’re entitled to.
At Scott J. Sternberg & Associates, P.A., we’ll guide you through the legal process and ensure you understand your rights during each step. Our workers’ compensation attorneys are here to help you and your family get through this tough time as easily as possible.
