Florida ranks among the states with the highest number of workplace accidents. According to the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 225 fatal work injuries in Florida in 2010, trailing only California and Texas. Work-related injuries and fatalities can be caused by motor vehicle accidents, falls, exposure to harmful substances, fires and explosions, and defective machinery.
If you have suffered a serious workplace injury, you may be unable to work for an extended period and need more financial assistance than workers’ compensation provides. Workers’ compensation does not fairly compensate a worker for an injury on the job.
It only pays a portion of last wages and nothing for pain and suffering, and loss of capacity to enjoy life. The seriously injured worker can only receive full and fair compensation through a civil lawsuit against companies other than his employer which share fault for the accident. Let a work accident lawyer from Pajcic & Pajcic review the facts of your accident and explain your legal options free of charge.
At Pajcic & Pajcic we understand that workers’ compensation pays only part of the expenses after a workplace accident. Many injured workers have legal rights to recover damages from careless property owners and manufacturers who contributed to their accident.
