Our Florida workers compensation attorneys are here to help

The workers compensation system was designed to help workers in Florida who are unable to make a living because they have been injured at work, but often, the system works against an employee who does not have the time, resources or money to fight big insurance companies and employers who refuse to meet their legal responsibilities. Many clients are lead to believe that they do not need to hire an attorney to protect their legal right that is a mistake the employer and the insurance carrier have their own attorneys. You should have your own attorney too! The Miami worker’s compensation lawyers at the Law Office of Pelayo Duran can help to defend your rights if you find yourself in this situation.

Our worker’s compensation attorneys are highly experience and will not be taken in by the common tactics used by insurance companies to avoid paying legitimate claims.

We understand that when you have suffered an injury, you should be able to focus all of your energy on your recovery. We can negotiate with your employer or their insurance agent, leaving you to concentrate on getting better while we work to resolve your workers compensation claim. If your claim is not able to be resolved satisfactorily by negotiation, our attorneys will represent you in court when you bring a Florida workers' compensation lawsuit.

work injury claim attorneyEven though accepting workers compensation benefits from your employer usually bars you from suing them, it does not mean that you forfeit your right to sue any other party that can be shown to have contributed to your injury. Such other parties may include companies that have manufactured unsafe or defective products as well as responsible individuals or subcontracting companies. If your employer is responsible for creating or maintaining a workplace where injury was bound to happen, then you may even be able to sue while receiving benefits.

There are some circumstances in which you are automatically entitled to take your claim to court. For example, if your employer has done something illegal - such as firing you because you filed a Florida workers' compensation claim, or failing to carry workers' compensation insurance - you have every right to pursue your claim in court.

If you are unable to work because of an injury and facing mounting medical bills, you are already at a disadvantage. The last thing you need is a fight with a company that refuses to meet its legal obligations. We can step in to negotiate with an insurance company, remind your employer of their legal obligations and, if necessary, fight aggressively for you in court.
