Worker’s Compensation

Worker's Compensation is an insurance that provides medical care for people who have been injured during the course and scope of their employment. If you are injured at work, you qualify. Fault is not a consideration. The accident may or may not have been your fault, but you are still encouraged to call Higgins Law, LLC for representation.

Worker's Compensation insurance adjusters will tell you that you don't need a lawyer, but they are looking out for their best interests, not yours. They may not tell you all of your rights, such as the right to lost wages for life if you have a permanent injury. They may tell you that you are entitled to lost wages and not mention your other rights, such as a change of doctors.

Some worker's compensation injuries are permanently disabling, and if so, you will want to apply for not only the temporary total disability payments you are entitled to at first, but also for permanent total disability payments thereafter. If you become permanently and totally disabled, and cannot do the same type of work you did before you were injured, you may be eligible for additional benefits that the insurance adjuster has not told you about. Call Higgins Law, LLC at (863) 325-0343 today if you have been injured at work so you will know all your rights and have an advocate who makes sure you receive all you are entitled to.
