Fort Lauderdale Workplace Injury Lawyer
Workers’ compensation in Florida is a no-fault system, meaning it doesn’t matter who is to blame for the accident. You can be injured because of the carelessness of a co-worker, your boss, or even through your own fault. However, if your accident was caused by a third party that is no affiliated with your employer, you may have two cases, one for worker' compensation benefits and a third party personal injury case as well. Call us for more information on your rights to third party recovery for someone else's negligence.
