Being injured and unable to work can be a very stressful experience. If you have always supported your family (or even just yourself), finding yourself without an income can be terrifying.
You may not know what your options are, and you may not even know about a government program known as Workers’ Compensation, also often referred to as Workman’s Compensation. Workers’ Compensation is a government agency that provides compensation to those who are injured at work or who are made ill due to their work. If you are unable to work due to injury or sickness, you should contact the workplace injury attorneys at The Cochran Firm South Florida today to schedule a no-obligation, confidential consultation.
Some of the most common workplace injuries we see, are, unfortunately, often very serious. We have represented clients who have suffered:
- Head/brain injury
- Back injury
- Neck/shoulder injury
- Loss of limbs
- Burn injury
- Vision/hearing loss
- Mesothelioma (due to exposure to asbestos)
Many of these injuries will result in permanent disability. If you are fortunate, you may suffer only partial disability. Regardless of the severity of your workplace injury, you need an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney on your side.
