Am I entitled to workers’ compensation after a construction accident?
There may be certain limitations about what you are going to be able to get because of Florida’s workers’ compensation system. You might not get all the damages that you would normally get in a personal injury action or a car accident case. You won’t get any pain and suffering damages, and you’ll have limitation of recovery fundamentally to whatever disability rating you get or the medical care that is contemplated for you in the future.What we want to do when we get a workers’ compensation claim is help the client navigate through that process so that they can make good decisions, and do the best with a difficult system. It’s not going to be great, but a lawyer who knows how to make the right decisions in the workers’ comp setting can actually do some good things for a client.
