Workplace Injuries Can Happen In Any Industry

Workplace Injuries Can Happen In Any IndustryWhen a person hears words like workman's compensation, a picture of a slip and fall occurring in an office might pop into their mind. However, numerous industries offer jobs that take place in environments that can lead to workers sustaining damages. Not everyone sits at a computer in a cubicle all day, nor are they big wigs that hang out in a corner office. Retail workers, restaurant employees, and countless others can become hurt in their respective trades. Cooks, along with waiters or waitresses, hang around hot grease, slippery floors, and sharp instruments every day. Burns and lacerations are always possible, and so are broken bones from falling, on wet, or oily surfaces. Big corporations have the monetary means to stretch cases out to their advantage, and they often attempt to do so to get defendants to settle for a small compensation figure.

These organizations also try to confuse and manipulate people with complicated legal proceedings, and on occasion, they even get the injured party to apply their signature to documents signing their rights away. A person does not have to hire an attorney, but they often find the action to be beneficial to their cause. Our lawyers work closely with the police and witnesses to obtain relevant data for the case. They have over 100-years of combined experience, which has given them the ability to represent Florida residents with great success. We don't want to see our friends and neighbors hurt, but if you find yourself in need of legal representation, don't hesitate to give us a call.

Plumbers work in hazardous conditions on a daily basis. There is one aspect of their job that leaves their back injured that is worthy of recognition in this post. They have to use a heavy machine to cut roots out of sewer lines and clear other debris. Many trucks feature a winch for lifting the equipment up and down, but others have nothing of the sort, and the machine must be manhandled. Repeating these actions over, and over again, takes a toll on the back, legs, knees, and the rest of the body. The workers should not have to be subjected to such a task, but they are, and injuries can result because of them. As these examples point out, damages can become sustained in any industry.

Warehouse employees face dangers from pallet jacks, forklifts, and scissor lifts, not to mention the towering piles of goods stacked on shelves. Appendages can easily be crushed or rolled over, which leads to broken bones, lacerations, and tons of other problems. A package falling on the head from an upper level can result in a brain injury or wrongful death. Medical bills can pile up quickly when the employee is missing time from work. Budgetary restrictions can make it hard to pay rent, utility bills, and everything else. Don't let your company take advantage of you in a vulnerable state. Instead, give our lawyers the opportunity to show you what sets our firm apart from the rest.


 

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
