Third Party Claims and Lawsuits in Workplace Accidents

More than one party may be held responsible for workplace accident injuries. If your on-the-job accident was caused by a negligent third party, you may also be able to file a personal injury claim against a third party such as contractors, subcontractors, property owners, coworkers and supervisors whose negligence may have been partly responsible for your accident.

Other possible causes of injury may be a defective product or toxic substance, for which you may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer of the defective product or toxic substance.

When workers’ compensation and personal injury claims overlap, it is important that you work with an attorney who is experienced in handling cases in both of these areas of law. Attorneys at Kramer Law have an in-depth understanding of Florida workers' compensation law and personal injury laws.

Turn to our firm for trusted support, knowledgeable advice and skilled representation at every stage of the process. If you have been injured on the job, contact us for a free consultation with an experienced Orlando personal injury lawyer. The time between when an accident happens and when a workers’ compensation claim is filed is limited in Florida. Call 1-855-Kramer Now (1-855-572-6376) so we can get started, together.

Workers’ Compensation Claims

Under Florida law, most employers with four or more workers are required to provide workers’ compensation to their employees. Construction site employers with one or more employees must provide workers’ compensation. Agricultural employers with six or more regular employees and/or 12 or more seasonal employees, who work for more than 30 days, must obtain workers' compensation coverage for those employees.

A Florida worker has only 30 days to report a workplace injury to his or her employer, and then is allowed two years to file a workers’ compensation claim. Injured workers should not delay reporting an incident or filing a workers’ compensation claim because the evidence may disappear or employees who are witnesses may leave.

Kramer Law is experienced in all facets of work-related injuries, including cases involving unsafe or unsanitary working conditions, strains from heavy lifting, machine related accidents, repetitive motion injury, stress-related injury, or cases where a family member is killed on the job. Injuries at construction sites or injuries that occur due to heavy equipment accidents or defective work equipment may be particularly complex. These cases require the immediate guidance of lawyer.

Are You Eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits?

In addition to help with workers’ compensation, we can evaluate if your case causes eligibility for Social Security Disability. You can receive both benefits at the same time. However, an employer may offset your workers’ compensation benefits by a percentage of the Social Security Disability benefits you receive.

Our attorneys will be able to establish the best way to resolve a workers compensation case with regards to Social Security Disability benefits so that you receive the maximum benefits possible each month.

If your Workers’ Comp Claim is Denied, Do Not Give Up

Call Kramer Law if your workers’ compensation claim has been denied. There are steps our attorneys will immediately take in order to gather the necessary evidence for your appeal, and investigate whether other options for compensation are available to you.

Insurance companies will do all they can to minimize expenses. Their goal is to close a claim as quickly as possible for the least amount of money possible. Insurers have many tricks and tactics they will effectively use against claimants in order to deny a claim for benefits, or drastically limit the amount they have to pay. For example, the employer’s insurance company often retains independent medical professionals to work in the insurance company’s favor, instead of in the best interest of the claimant.

Our attorneys know the insurance company’s tactics, and how they are going to value your case at settlement time. Kramer Law will protect your rights and ensure you are fully compensated as due by the law. You will be taken care of with diligence, compassion and unparalleled personal service.
