Miami Lakes Work Injuries
Miami Lakes, in Florida’s Miami-Dade County, is a suburb of Miami. With a population of over 22,600 as of 2004, the city has been expanding and growing, attracting new residents through its proximity to Miami and its quiet streets. The land where the community is located was originally owned by Senator Ernest Graham. Since the early 1960s, the Graham Company (then known as Sengra) has been developing the area. Development continues today.
Like any other community, Miami Lakes sees its share of injuries, including workplace-related injuries. The legal team at the Flaxman Law Group have worked extensively with personal injury victims who have sustained injuries in office accidents, workplace violence incidents, and in construction site accidents in Miami Lakes and other communities. No matter where you work, you deserve a safe workplace. If you have been injured at work, you can always contact the Flaxman Law Group for legal advice and a case review.What to do if You are Injured at Work in Miami Lakes or Southern Florida
If you sustain any injury in the workplace, it is important to take the following steps:
- Get medical help. Even if you think you have not sustained a serious injury, it is important to get checked out by a doctor. Some injuries that do not produce symptoms right away are still very serious. Some patients with life-threatening head injuries in Miami Lakes, for example, sustain serious injuries or even die because they do not get medical help in time. In many cases, they fail to seek medical help because they do not have any apparent symptoms. Soft tissue injuries and other types of injuries may not have obvious symptoms, either, so it is important to get a medical opinion.
- Report your injuries to your supervisor right away and start the process of workers compensation claims if you need them. Delaying reporting your injuries can make it harder to prove your injury and can complicate your claim.
- Seek legal advice. The process of workers compensation claims in Miami Lakes can be complex. In some cases, employees have a difficult time getting fair compensation for their injuries and for lost wages. A personal injury attorney in Miami Lakes or your Florida community can help you explore all your legal options and can review the process with you.
