Winter Park Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Have you or a loved one had an accident at work that resulted in physical injury and costly medical bills? In Florida, employers must pay for economic losses associated with medical or other services provided in connection with work-related employee injuries or deaths. Furthermore, it is illegal for an employer to retaliate by firing or intimidating an employee for exercising his right to workers’ compensation, even if the employee filed a claim with his previous employer. Florida residents trust Hornsby Law to provide an experienced Winter Park workers’ compensation attorney.
If you work for the State or a private company and you have been physically injured on the job, you may have a right to collect monetary damages under Workers’ Compensation laws or in a legal action against your employer. If you have already elected to receive workers compensation benefits, you may be eligible for additional compensation if your employer’s actions created a “virtual certainty” that someone would be hurt.
