Fort Lauderdale Workers’ Compensation Attorney
If you are the victim of a workplace accident, or one that happened outside of the office but during work hours, the first thing you must do is get the immediate medical attention you need. At the same time or as soon as possible, you need to notify your employer of the accident. But right after that, your next step should be to contact the Law Offices of Thomas & Pearl.
Thomas & Pearl is relentless and will fight for you.
Immediately upon contacting us, we will invite you come in for a FREE consultation where you will meet the attorneys who will be personally working on your claim, find out all about our experience handling similar claims, and ask any and all questions you want answered. We will also go over the parties involved, all potential avenues of liability, advise you of the legal process for these types of claims, and make sure you are getting the ongoing medical care you need if you aren’t already. Your focus should be all about just getting better and doing whatever your doctors tell you. We will handle the claim and personally guide you through those parts you need to do in person. You will be advised before any important steps are taken, and will make each critical decision after getting your lawyer’s opinions.
While you recover from your injuries, your employer is required to provide you with ongoing medical care and a certain amount of lost wages. It is very common, however, for all parties to decide that they prefer settling the claim and giving the victim a lump-sum amount of cash instead of paying each time you go to the doctor. Like all other steps, the decision will be yours but we will provide you with our best professional opinions.
Another benefit of choosing Thomas & Pearl as your law firm for your Workers Compensation claim is our knowledge and skill handling just about all other types of injury claims. That can be very important for certain victims of workplace accidents because it is very common for additional parties to also be liable for your injuries. The attorneys at Thomas & Pearl, with extensive experience in all injury matters, are not only able to recognize when other parties may also bear responsibility for your injuries, but can also handle those additional claims as well since we are not only a Workers’ Compensation firm. This added skill can not only help to maximize your potential recovery but is also much more convenient for the clients who do not have to use multiple law firms for the same accident.
