While some electrocution injuries are minor, electrocution can result in serious and life-threatening injuries. The effects of electrocution can be long-term and permanent. When you suffer electrocution on the job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. There are many types of workers’ compensation benefits available to injured workers including payment for lost wages, medical expenses, and training if you are unable to return to your job.
To receive workers’ compensation benefits after your accident, it’s important to file your claim quickly. There are many time limits under workers’ compensation and your injury must be reported promptly to your employer. The next step is for your employer and the insurance carrier to refer you to a physician of their choosing.
Unfortunately, many injured workers in Florida face an uphill battle receiving the benefits they are entitled to under workers’ compensation law. The system favors your employer and the insurance company, allowing them to choose the physician who will determine how severely you are injured and when/if you are able to return to work.
When you are facing serious electrocution injuries, it’s important to have a legal advocate on your side to help you fight for the full compensation you deserve. Do not accept the first settlement offer you receive from the insurance carrier or allow a denied or undervalued claim to discourage you.
