Fort Lauderdale Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
Serving Clients Throughout South Florida Including Sunrise, Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, West Palm Beach & More
Have you been injured due to the negligence of another person? They are legally responsible for the injuries they inflicted on you, and you are legally entitled to recover monetary compensation from them for your medical expenses, lost wages for work you missed, pain and suffering, and other legal damages. The law is on your side, but negligent individuals, businesses and their insurance companies don’t make it easy on you. They’ll say the accident wasn’t their fault, you weren’t really hurt very bad, or it was actually your own negligence that is to blame. It’s up to you to prove all of the facts of your case and to know how the law applies to the specific facts of your case. That’s where an experienced personal injury attorney can be invaluable.

Comprehensive South Florida Personal Injury Law Firm
Year after year, Miami and Broward counties top the list for the highest numbers of vehicle crashes, injuries and deaths. This ranking is due at least in part to the large populations in these counties, but there is still no excuse for the tens of thousands of accidents occurring every year that quite frankly could largely be prevented if more people drove with the appropriate amount of care and attention. Instead, people drive drunk and distracted. They speed, and they speed away. Our firm takes on the full range of car, truck and motorcycle accidents, and also bicycle and pedestrian accidents. We represent people hit by uninsured drivers and find ways for victims of hit-and-runs to recover compensation as well.
Florida property owners have a duty to keep their premises free of hazards for the safety of customers, guests, delivery persons and others on the property. This duty includes making reasonable, periodic inspections, cleaning up spills or fixing problems as they occur, and warning the public when a danger exists. When a person slips, trips or is hit by a falling object because of a hazard on the premises, grocery stores, restaurants, department stores and apartment managers say they didn’t have time to fix the danger before the accident happened, or the accident victims simply weren’t watching where they were going. Premises liability cases are complex and hard to prove, but we pour our resources into establishing the facts of the case and holding property owners liable when their negligence is at the heart of a slip and fall injury.
When you find a nursing home to care for an ill or elderly relative, you want to know they are being treated attentively and professionally by trained, qualified staff. Unfortunately, high turnover rates and corporate profit motives make nursing home residents vulnerable to abuse from untrained, unqualified and unsupervised workers. Nursing home abuse is intolerable. We’ll take on the largest corporations in the state and hold them accountable for their failures, ensuring your loved ones are treated with the care and respect they need and deserve.
Florida Workers’ Compensation Claims
Nearly all workers in Florida are covered by workers’ compensation insurance. When employees are injured on the job, they are supposed to have their medical care paid for by workers’ compensation, and they are supposed to receive a portion of their wages while they are disabled from working. In reality, employers and their workers’ compensation insurance carriers go to great lengths to deny valid claims, and even when they do pay benefits, they look for every opportunity to cut off benefits as soon as possible, even before you’re ready to go back to work. We can help you understand how common workplace injuries happen, why workers’ comp claims get denied, and what benefits you are entitled to. If you are having trouble getting your benefits from your employer, our Fort Lauderdale workers’ compensation attorneys can help.
