In some instances, workers might also have grounds to file personal injury lawsuits against the negligent parties who were responsible. The Law Offices of Evan M. Ostfeld provides personalized attention to assist those individuals that require a Boca Raton Workers’ Compensation and or Personal Injury attorney. Here is an illustrative case of the complexities that may arise from a workplace accident.
Workers’ Compensation Case Wrongfully Denied
Evan M. Ostfeld, Esq. recently represented a client who was seriously injured at a construction site. The employee was hired as a cleaner and had an accident on the very first day of the job. Mind you that the onboarding paperwork had not yet been completed when the worker fell several stories from a building on to the concrete below. Not surprisingly, all of the companies at that location claimed that the person was not employed by them and no workers’ compensation benefits were initially paid. As such, the legal team at The Law Offices of Evan M. Ostfeld filed a lawsuit against all of the possible employers so the injured individual could receive benefits. Through much heated litigation, we are happy to report that Evan was able secure for the client, payment of the lost wages, medical bills, along with securing a tax-free lump sum settlement.
Workers’ Compensation and Third-Party Construction Site Claims
On construction projects, there are often general and multiple subcontractors involved who each have their own employees. When an employee of one company is injured due to the negligent actions of another worker of a different contractor, he/she may file a Boca Raton Workers’ Compensation claim. If the accident was caused by the negligence of an unrelated general or subcontractor, the victim can file a personal injury claim in addition to the Florida workers’ compensation case. That means the injured person may be able to recover full compensation for his/her losses, including for pain and suffering.
