Navigating the Workers’ Compensation System
When you suffer a work injury, your employer’s insurance company should cover all of your medical bills and pay your lost wages. However, insurance companies and employers are notorious for not reporting claims, not paying benefits for which they are responsible, failing to authorize required medical treatment, and then trying to get injured workers back to work before they have fully recovered.
Legal representation can make all the difference in the outcome of your workers’ comp case. Our attorneys at Berlin Law Firm have decades of experience, including over 30 years of experience managing the legal operations of some of Florida’s workers’ comp insurance providers.

Here are a few recent reviews from our clients:
“Was incredibly hesitant to seek legal representation for my workers’ compensation situation. Left feeling abandoned by my employer and workers’ compensation agent, I had to bite the bullet and reach out for legal assistance. My initial phone consultation with Steve and Regan had me feeling like I was back in control of my life. They listen! There was no pressure in signing documents, I was afforded the time to read through everything before making the commitment. The most peace of mind I’ve had in three weeks.” – Stephanie R.
“Berlin Law Firm did a great job handling my case they kept me informed and got the case settled in a reasonable amount of time I hope no one ever needs workers’ compensation but if you do get hurt at work make sure you get a good lawyer because the insurance company will try to eat you alive and Berlin Law Firm would be a good choice.” – Brian L.

Injuries Unique to Workers
Though workplace injuries run the gamut from slip and fall injuries to chemical exposure, some injuries are quite common among workers. For instance, repetitive movements are linked to injuries to the knees, shoulders, and joints. Machinists are just as susceptible to injuries of this nature as those who spend much of their typing. Chronic injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome are commonly sustained in the office environment, while vision and hearing loss could happen under many different work-related circumstances.
Many workers face dangerous conditions every day that could result in being struck by heavy objects, falling from great heights, sustaining severe burns, and suffering puncture wounds. These scenarios could result in catastrophic injuries of the neck, back, and spine.
Though many injured workers will recover and return to work eventually, others may be rendered permanently disabled and unable to work or care for themselves. These cases are particularly sensitive due to their high-stakes nature and life-altering results.
