A Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Ready To Help With Any Kind Of Claim
Some jobs are inherently more dangerous than others, but workplace accidents and injuries can happen just about anywhere. If you were hurt on the job or developed an illness as a result of exposure to harmful substances, you may qualify for compensation. You may even qualify if you suffered a slip-and-fall accident in the parking lot of your workplace.
The best way to understand and utilize your legal options is to consult an experienced lawyer. In Pasco County, the firm to call is the Law Office of Michael T. Keough. I am firm founder Michael T. Keough, an attorney with 27 years of experience and AV Preeminent Rated by Martindale-Hubbell* which is the highest possible ranking for ethics and professionalism in the legal profession. My entire practice is dedicated to helping injured workers obtain the benefits they are entitled to under Florida law. I want to help you, too.
Frequently Cited Accidents And Injuries
Any injury that happened on the job is likely compensable, so long as it caused you to lose time at work or hampers your ability to perform your duties. Below are some of the most common accidents and injuries I assist clients with:
- Lifting accidents
- Forklift accidents
- Crushing injuries
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Motor vehicle crashes
- Injuries to the hands and fingers
- Neck, back and shoulder injuries
Even injuries that might be considered minor are a big deal if they impede your work. For instance, if you work primarily with your hands, a finger injury could make it difficult or impossible to do your job.
Additionally, it’s important to remember that injuries do not always stem from a single accident. Many are caused by repetitive stress or cumulative strain. Examples include carpal tunnel syndrome, spine injuries or problems with knees, elbows and necks.
