Transportation Accidents are Common Workplace Injuries in Florida and Hollywood

In Florida, transportation plays a crucial role in the state's economic growth. However, this high reliance on transportation also brings inherent risks for workers. Common types of injuries include:

  • Car Collisions. Workers driving company vehicles and making deliveries at work face the risk of accidents on busy roads.
  • Forklift Incidents. In warehouses and construction sites, forklift accidents can occur due to improper training, equipment malfunctions, or negligent operation.
  • Aviation Accidents. Employees in the aviation industry, such as pilots, flight attendants, and ground crew, face unique risks associated with air travel.
  • Truck Crashes. Truck drivers have one of the highest accident rates among all workers, and can face collisions due to truck maintenance issues, poor road conditions, unreasonable deadlines, and other factors.
  • Maritime Accidents. Sailors, dockworkers, crew members, and other workers on boats and shops are susceptible to accidents at sea or on docks.
  • Rail Accidents. Employees working around trains are exposed to potential train collisions, derailments, and other rail-related incidents.

Why You Need a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer in Hollywood

If you’ve suffered injury from a transportation accident that occurred during the course of your work duties, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits in Florida. These benefits can help pay for medical care and can replace lost income.

When a transportation accident occurs, the aftermath can be overwhelming. It can be difficult to pursue a workers’ compensation claim for your transportation related injury in this situation. In addition, employers and their insurance companies sometimes try to minimize or deny legitimate claims.

An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can help you with filing a claim and can build a strong case for you. At Flaxman Law Group, for example, our workers’ comp attorneys have a wealth of experience handling transportation accident cases in Hollywood and throughout Florida. We work with expert witnesses, investigators, and other professionals and negotiate on your behalf so you can pursue the compensation you need for your injury.

Just remember: time is of the essence in workplace transportation accident cases. In Florida, there are statutes of limitations, which require you to file a workers’ comp claim fast or lose the right to compensation. It is therefore crucial to contact Flaxman Law Group as soon as possible if you plan on making a claim or need help with your benefits.
