Work injuries are usually covered by an employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. However, when gross negligence or a third party is involved, workers’ compensation may not be sufficient to meet all of an injured worker’s costs.
The personal injury attorneys at Heller & Heller, P.A., investigate workplace accidents to expose egregious instances of negligence on the part of employers or third parties. Our investigator’s interview eyewitnesses, take photographs, and collect any physical evidence available. Our Coral Springs, Florida, office will subpoena company memos, emails, and other communications where our client’s accident was discussed or the conditions involved in it were acknowledged. We also protect our clients from being intimidated or forced back on the job before their injuries are healed.

The Financial Impact of a Serious Workplace Injury
In order to determine the financial needs of our clients, our attorneys consult medical experts, life care planners and economists. We look at the cost of future medical treatment, surgery, physical therapy, medical equipment, lost earnings, and pain and suffering. When an employer’s insurance company attempts to downplay your injuries or the costs associated with them, our financial and medical experts present cost-data analysis based on treatment information from HMOs and insurance industry research. We establish the extent of your injuries and force them to acknowledge the facts we’ve provided.
