Workplace Injuries in Miami Beach

Miami Beach has over 20 million visitors every year, making it a world-renowned tourist destination. People from all around the world come to enjoy Miami Beach’s hotels and resorts.

This tourism-based economy means that hospitality, construction, and services are the primary employment options for workers in Miami Beach. While these can be rewarding careers, they’re not without risks. Hotel workers have similar rates of nonfatal injuries to coal miners. Out of all work industries in Florida, construction workers have the highest workplace fatality rates out of any industry in the state.

These workplace injuries can cause serious physical pain, distress, and financial burdens. Medical bills pile up while workers are unable to earn their regular wages, leaving them uncertain about the future.

What is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance, paid for by your employer, that protects you in the event of a workplace injury.

Workers’ compensation allows workers to receive coverage for medical bills and lost wages without the need for a lawsuit. It’s a no-fault system, meaning that you can receive workers’ compensation benefits even if the accident was your fault.

There are challenges involved in workers’ compensation. It’s a complicated system that can be difficult to navigate without specialized knowledge. Workers seeking compensation often struggle with:

  • Denied claims
  • Inadequate benefits
  • Complicated paperwork
  • And more

Navigating the Workers’ Compensation Process with WHG

Filing a workers’ compensation claim is pretty straightforward–as long as nothing goes wrong.

  1. Report your injury to your employer
  2. Seek medical treatment from a doctor approved by the insurance company
  3. Provide requested documentation to the insurance company
  4. Receive benefits

Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work like that. Employers and their insurance providers may dispute your claim, arguing that your injuries aren’t that serious or didn’t take place at work. This can leave injured workers struggling to navigate a complicated appeals process when they should be focused on recovering from their injuries.
