Your recovery time should pass smoothly so that you can return to work soon, and DDB Law can help make it a smooth transition.
Lakeland Attorneys Helping Those Hurt in the Workplace
If you’ve been hurt at work, you have the right to Workers’ Compensation benefits.
Your employer has workers’ compensation insurance to cover your medical costs and provide you with financial support if you have to miss work. In Florida, workers’ compensation coverage is mandatory for all businesses that have four or more employees. If an employer is not covered, they are breaking the law. The question is usually not whether or not they have coverage, the question is how do you gain full access to benefits? More often than not, the answer to that question is hiring an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney.

We are able to assist all people who have suffered work-related injuries, including construction workers, mine workers, truck drivers and trucking company employees, workers at retail centers and more.

Getting You the Benefits You Need
If you are like most people, you have been trying to deal with your employer and the insurance carrier on your own. At first, medical treatment, wages and your relationship with your employer may have been easy.
Unfortunately, after a short time we sometimes see the problems start. Whether you were just injured and you’re just beginning the process or you have reached a roadblock while trying to handle it yourself, you can be confident that we can help you.
What Rights do I Have When I’m Hurt at Work?
Florida laws require your employer to pay for medical treatment and any necessary rehabilitation if you’re hurt on the job. You also have the right to have a lawyer handle your case.
Should I Hire a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer?
If you’ve been injured on the job, your focus should be on getting well. Unfortunately, jumping through the hoops of dealing with your employer, medical bills and insurance companies can get in the way of that focus.
The last thing you want is to still be unwell and then stuck with medical bills that were never your fault to begin with. Hiring a lawyer makes sure you have as many resources as you can to focus on getting well.
Also, despite the law protecting the rights of an injured worker, some workers compensation claims are denied. Many people take this denial at face value. However, experienced lawyers can help fight to get you the benefits you deserve.
How Much Does a Workers Compensation Lawyer Cost?
It’s sad to think that many people don’t seek legal help because they think lawyers are only for the rich and famous. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
DDB Law handles workers’ compensation cases on a contingency basis, which means we only collect money if we help you win your case. That means no up-front payments and no money required until after the case is done. If you win, the cost of the legal services given is taken out of the benefits you receive.
