When you are injured on the job, workers’ compensation is supposed to provide benefits such as medical treatment, lost wages, and permanent disability payments. In return, the employee cannot sue the employer for personal injury. However, you need your own lawyer who protects your rights and advocates for you, especially if your benefits are denied or delayed.
If you have been injured at work, contact our experienced lawyers at Berlin Law Firm in Sarasota. Our dedicated team specializes in workman’s compensation claims and was founded by Stephen Berlin, who has over 30 years of experience in this complex field.
