My husband had his arm amputated on a construction site, and his company isn't offering us enough money for this type of injury. What are our rights?
A: Amputations injuries are serious, since they leave a worker with a lifelong disability. Although your husband’s employer knows that your husband will have to deal with this life altering injury the rest of his life and may not be able to return to work, they are looking out for their bottom line.
Your husband should not sign any forms or accept a settlement offer from that company until he speaks with a South Florida workers’ compensation attorney. A lawyer skilled in this area of the law can explain to your husband his rights and determine how much he should be awarded.
Your husband should be compensated for past and future medical bills, physical therapy, in home care, pain and suffering and more.
