In Palm Beach County, FL, it is generally required that employers with four employees or more provide insurance for workers’ compensation. The exception is in cases of construction companies, where employers with one employee are required to obtain workers compensation insurance. Workers compensation laws vary across each state, as do the systems for reporting a work accident. Ideally, the state’s workers’ compensation system should be self executing. However, there are times when an injured worker will need assistance ensuring that the system is properly executed and the employee obtains the proper benefits. In moments like these, it may benefit you to speak to a Palm Beach workers’ compensation attorney. In many instances, your employer and your employer’s’ workers’ compensation insurance company can be very helpful in securing your benefits. A good employer will see that your claim is filed promptly and properly, while a good insurance company will see that you are quickly scheduled for medical appointments and receive your lost wage payments on time. They will communicate with you thoroughly to ensure you are receiving satisfactory care. Sadly, there are many insurance companies, that are more interested in lining their pockets than caring for injured workers. The longer they wait to provide you with compensation, the more their bank accounts can accumulate interest. Our knowledgeable Palm Beach County workers compensation lawyers understand that obtaining compensation can sometimes be a convoluted, frustrating process. Do not let this deter you from filing for workers’ compensation. Our law firm is comprised of astute, aggressive, experienced attorneys who serve both the English and Spanish-speaking communities of Palm Beach FL.
