Boca Raton Workplace Accident Attorneys
Receive compensation for your injuries with the help of our experienced attorneys
Each year, scores of employees are injured across Florida in workplace accidents. And while workers’ compensation is available to many Florida employees, it often only covers a portion of the expenses incurred in workplace accidents. However, if you’ve been injured in a workplace accident, you may be able to receive additional compensation with the assistance of an experienced workplace accident attorney. At GED Lawyers, LLP, our experienced injury lawyers zealously represent you in your workplace accident case—fighting to ensure you receive the financial compensation you deserve after a workplace accident.
When can I sue outside of workers’ compensation?
It is true that workers’ compensation generally covers most workplace accidents. However, there are some circumstances under which an injured employee can sue an employer, including:
- An injury suffered in a workplace accident was caused by a third-party contractor
- An injury suffered in a workplace accident was caused by defective equipment or work tools
- An injury suffered in a workplace accident was caused by an employer’s intentional conduct
Common workplace accidents and injuries
Workplace accidents often occur due to no fault of the injured employees. In fact, workplace injuries are often caused by employer negligence. Frequently, workplace accidents are directly related to machinery breakdowns, insufficient safety precautions, and improperly serviced equipment. Common work accidents and injuries include:
- Exposure to toxic chemicals and waste
- Construction accidents
- Electrical accidents
- Falling objects
- Slip and falls
- Knee injuries
- Ankle injuries
- Neck injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Back injuries
- Cuts and wounds
- Electric shocks
- Eye injuries
- Hearing loss
- Bone fractures and breaks
- Respiratory problems
While these represent some of the most common types of workplace accidents and injuries, it’s important to keep in mind that virtually any type of accident suffered at work may entitle you to financial compensation. Therefore, if you’ve suffered an injury due to a workplace accident, regardless of its severity, let our experienced Boca Raton attorneys review your case and determine if you may be entitled to compensation.
