Workers’ Compensation Attorneys For Florida Workers
When you suffer a work-related injury, it can be difficult to know where to turn. How will you make ends meet while you are unable to work? How will you cover your medical bills? You need a lawyer who can find the answers to these questions and make sure you are not left to bear the burden of a workplace injury alone. In Brandon, in Lakeland and throughout Florida, you can turn to Pilka Adams & Reed, P.A., for the representation you need.
We have earned a reputation as strong advocates for injury survivors, providing them a level playing field after an injury. Employers and insurance companies are not able to push our clients into accepting an inadequate offer; we make sure our clients understand all options for obtaining the full workers’ compensation benefits and third-party personal injury compensation they deserve.
Seeking Full Benefits And Compensation For Injured Workers
We have been helping the victims of workplace injuries for more than 30 years. This includes pursuing workers’ compensation and personal injury claims involving:
- Falls from ladders and scaffolding
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Equipment malfunctions
- Chemical exposure
- Repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome
- Back and neck injuries
- Head injuries
- Depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
We strive to maximize workers’ compensation benefits for medical expenses and lost wages. Where possible, we also pursue personal injury claims against negligent third parties in order to obtain financial compensation for the pain and suffering experienced by our clients. We can handle both claims simultaneously, taking care of your legal issues so you can focus on getting better.
Common Work-Related Injuries
Our attorneys can help you seek compensation for nearly any type of workplace injury, including:
- Repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neck, back and spinal cord injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Knee injuries
- Burn injuries
- Amputated limbs
- Post-traumatic stress disorder and other psychological conditions resulting from your accident or injuries
Depending on the nature and severity of your injuries, you may be out of work for an extended period of time, or you might be unable to do this same kind of work ever again. In these cases, our attorneys will help you explore long-term or total disability benefits as well as lesser-known benefits to help you find different work, including vocational rehabilitation and reemployment services.
What If Your Claim Has Already Been Denied?
Unfortunately, it is very common for workers’ compensation claims to be denied after initial submission. The truth is that most employers and insurers are looking for any reason to deny claims rather than reasons to honor them.
It is often advantageous to hire a workers’ compensation lawyer at the beginning of the process to reduce the chances of a denied claim. However, our firm can help you even if you hire us after your claim has been denied. We are prepared to represent you at all levels of appeal and will work tirelessly to protect your rights and secure the benefits you deserve.
