Workplace accidents can be catastrophic for Florida families. Depending on the severity of the injuries, job accidents cause physical pain, emotional trauma, mental anguish, and lost wages or income.
Florida residents are entitled to receive worker's compensation benefits regardless of the cause of their workplace injuries, but employers and insurers are notorious for minimizing claims. Many people who should receive temporary total disability benefits or permanent total disability benefits are denied adequate compensation.
E. Lynn Gibbons, our board-certified workers' compensation lawyer, has never lost a permanent total disability benefits case.
At Jorgensen Gibbons, P.A., we know how to collect and present the evidence of your injury to get you the results you deserve. We will utilize the services of vocational and medical experts to prove the extent of your injuries and get the insurance company to settle fairly and quickly. As trial attorneys, we are prepared to aggressively fight for you in court if it becomes necessary.
We will help you obtain temporary total disability benefits if you suffered on-the-job injuries that prevent you from being able to do your job now, but you will be able to return to your job after recovering.
You may have been partially disabled in your workplace accident. This is the case if your disability makes you unable to perform your job as it is now, but you can work in another capacity. In such a case, we would seek permanent partial disability benefits for you.
If your on-the-job injuries are so severe that you are unable to return to any job, we will fight for your right to receive permanent total disability benefits.
