Even a somewhat minor restaurant injury can leave you missing work for days or weeks with costly medical bills. Some injuries are serious enough to lead to permanent disability, a catastrophic injury, or even death. You should not feel stuck with the high financial impact of your work injury.
Under Florida’s workers’ compensation system, injured restaurant workers have the right to benefits for injuries that occur on the job. This includes medical benefits to pay for your related medical expenses and benefits to cover your lost wages and disability, whether it’s temporary or permanent.
Unfortunately, receiving the benefits you are entitled to under the workers’ compensation system is easier said than done. Many injured restaurant workers feel pressured to not file a claim at all. Others may struggle with an employer or insurance company that denies the injury is work-related, downplays the severity of an injury, or claims a serious and lasting injury is healed and the employee can return to work.
An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer in Florida will help you explore your options and assess the value of your claim. Never accept the first settlement offer you receive from your employer’s insurance carrier. Our Work Injury lawyers fight for you and work to secure the full benefits you deserve so you can focus on recovering.
