Thousands of working people are injured every year in on-the-job accidents. At The Nation Law Firm, located in the Orlando, Florida area, we have a department dedicated solely to assisting injured workers with their workman’s compensation claims and understanding the laws of workman’s compensation.
Our attorneys have years of experience in representing injured workers in claims for lost wages and medical benefits. It does not matter who was at fault in the accident, you may still be entitled to benefits. Florida’s workman’s compensation system is a “no-fault” system. Under the Florida Laws of Workman’s Compensation, the “no-fault” system means you do not have to prove negligence by your employer.
If you have been injured on the job, you should call to speak with one of our attorneys today. There will be no out-of-pocket expenses for our workman’s compensation clients.
