In the wake of a workplace injury, victims find themselves confronting a multitude of struggles, both physical and emotional. An unforeseen incident can lead to a prolonged and distressing journey towards recovery. The role of an adept and experienced legal representative in these situations is invaluable. This is where the seasoned lawyers of Ehrlich & Naparstek step in, wielding their profound knowledge and vast experience to navigate the complex pathways of workers’ compensation law.
Located in the Sunshine State, Boynton Beach is a flourishing industrial city. Home to a plethora of industries, including manufacturing and construction, Boynton Beach contributes significantly to the local economy. However, the unfortunate by-product of this industrial culture is the increased potential for workplace accidents. In such circumstances, workers’ compensation plays a pivotal role. It acts as an indispensable lifeline for employees, ensuring that those affected by work-related accidents or illnesses are duly compensated and supported throughout their recovery journey. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Florida has thousands of reported workplace injuries each year, further underscoring the importance of comprehensive workers’ compensation coverage.
As dedicated personal injury lawyers at Ehrlich & Naparstek, we pledge to safeguard your rights. Our team’s commitment, bolstered by an intricate understanding of Florida’s Workers’ Compensation Law, fortifies our ability to ensure our clients receive just treatment and the full compensation they are entitled to.
Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance offered by employers. It covers medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs for employees who have suffered work-related injuries or illnesses. Should an unfortunate incident lead to an employee’s death, this policy also extends benefits to the worker’s dependents. The Florida Division of Workers’ Compensation offers detailed information on this essential protection for employees.
As an injured worker, you are entitled to medical care, wage replacement, and rehabilitation services. Permanent disability stemming from a work-related injury or illness may qualify you for additional benefits. These rights are safeguarded by law, and any infringement warrants legal action.
Workers’ compensation and personal injury are two distinct legal concepts. Workers’ compensation benefits are provided irrespective of fault, whereas a personal injury claim necessitates the establishment of negligence by the defendant. Moreover, workers’ compensation prevents employees from suing their employers directly, but personal injury claims lack such restrictions.
Workers’ compensation cases can be intricate, and navigating this legal maze alone can be challenging. Having a knowledgeable lawyer by your side can be transformative in protecting your rights and maximizing the compensation you receive.

In Florida, the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims is four years from the date of the injury. This means that if you've been injured, you have four years to initiate legal proceedings. If you fail to file your lawsuit within this time frame, you may lose your right to seek compensation.
Florida operates under a no-fault insurance system. This means that after most traffic accidents, your own insurance policy will compensate you for medical expenses and lost income, irrespective of who was at fault. However, in severe injury cases, you might be able to step outside this no-fault system and file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver.
Florida follows a pure comparative negligence rule. If you're found to be partially at fault for your injury, your compensation may be reduced by a percentage equal to your share of the blame. For instance, if you're found to be 20% at fault, you can still recover 80% of your total damages.
In Florida, you can seek compensation for both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include tangible costs like medical bills and lost wages, while non-economic damages cover intangibles like pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.
The duration varies based on the complexity of the case, the parties involved, and the evidence. While some cases might settle quickly, others, especially those that go to trial, can take months or even years to resolve.
We operate on a contingency fee basis. This means that we only get paid if you win your case or secure a settlement. Typically, the fee is a percentage of the compensation you receive.
First, prioritize your safety and seek medical attention. Then, if possible, document the scene, take photographs, gather witness information, and report the incident to the police or relevant authorities. It's also advisable to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
If you're hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver in Florida, you can turn to your own insurance policy's uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. This coverage can help compensate for your injuries and damages.
Pain and suffering are subjective and can be challenging to quantify. Evidence such as medical records, therapy sessions, personal journals, and testimonies from friends and family can help establish the extent of your pain and suffering.
