According to statistics compiled by the U.S. Department of Labor, every year an estimated 4.1 million people suffer workplace injury – more than 5,000 are killed. At the Orlando law office of Frank M. Eidson, P.A., our workers’ compensation lawyer handles workplace injury claims on behalf of victims statewide. Although some jobs are more dangerous than others, the majority of injuries and deaths often result from everyday accidents like driving. However, regardless of the cause, workplace personal injury victims have the right to compensation for lost wages and medical bills. Companies sometimes resist paying these claims. Our Orlando workers’ compensation attorney – having recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of past victims – can help victims file a claim in order to pursue the fair compensation they deserve.
The most recent statistics show that the transportation and warehousing industry is the most hazardous, followed closely by the fields of construction and manufacturing. The industry of agriculture and forestry was also notably dangerous. However, work injuries occur every day in fields that are supposedly safer, and in our office we regularly see such victims from all over Florida. In filing a workers’ compensation claim with our lawyer, the client’s profession is less important than proving that a work-related activity directly caused an individual to sustain an injury.
Those in the transportation industry often suffer the most serious injuries when involved in an auto accident; however, falls and injuries caused by equipment are also significant. The latter category also includes harm caused by lifting heavy objects. Again, however, a person does not need to be involved in a high-risk industry to be injured on the job.
The first thing to do if you’ve sustained an injury on the job is to seek medical attention. A doctor’s diagnosis makes a workers’ compensation claim much stronger, and is often essential to achieving a favorable outcome. You should also seek the help of our workers’ compensation lawyer, especially if your employer resists paying the claim.
