We understand these complexities and are dedicated to helping our clients navigate the labyrinth of workers’ compensation laws.

Our workers’ compensation lawyers are fighting tirelessly for your rights.


Workers’ compensation is a state-mandated insurance program that provides financial benefits to employees who are injured or become ill due to their jobs. This insurance is carried by employers and covers a wide range of work-related injuries and illnesses.

Workers’ compensation benefits can help relieve many of the financial burdens associated with a workplace injury, including:

  • Medical expenses: This covers past and future costs associated with your workplace injury, including doctor visits, surgery, medication, physical therapy, and other necessary treatments.
  • Lost wages: If you’re unable to work due to your injury, workers’ compensation can help replace a portion of your income.
  • Vocational rehabilitation: In some cases, your injury may prevent you from returning to your original job duties. Workers’ compensation can help you receive training or retraining to return to work in a different capacity.


You should file a workers’ compensation claim whenever your job duties cause an injury or illness, or make an injury or illness worse. Some common scenarios include:

  • Sudden injuries: This could be anything from a slip-and-fall accident to a work-related car accident, resulting in broken bones, sprains, strains, or even more serious injuries.
  • Repetitive stress injuries (RSIs): These injuries develop over time due to repeated motions or awkward postures on the job. Carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and back pain are all common examples of RSIs.
  • Occupational illnesses: Over time, exposure to hazardous materials, chemicals, or toxins at work can lead to long-term health problems. Workers’ compensation can help cover the costs associated with these illnesses.


Here are some key steps to take after a workplace injury:

  1. Seek medical attention: Your health is the most important concern. See a doctor immediately to get a diagnosis and begin treatment. Keep detailed records of all your medical visits and treatments, including bills and receipts.
  2. Gather evidence: If possible, take photos of the accident scene and any visible injuries. Try to document the conditions that led to your injury. If there were any witnesses, get their names and contact information.
  3. Report the injury to your employer: Follow your company’s protocol for reporting workplace injuries. This typically involves notifying your supervisor or HR representative. Document the date, time, and who you reported the injury to.
  4. Understand your rights: Workers’ compensation laws can be complex. It’s important to understand your rights and obligations as an injured worker. Consulting with a workers’ compensation attorney can help you navigate the process.

Adam recounts one of his most impactful workers’ compensation cases and the lessons we can learn from it.


Filing a claim for a workplace accident can be a complex process. At Werner, Hoffman, Greig & Garcia, we help simplify this process by guiding you through each step, ensuring that you understand what is happening at all times.


Workers’ compensation covers a broad range of injuries, from minor sprains to severe injuries that require extensive medical treatment. At Werner, Hoffman, Greig & Garcia, we understand the broad scope of workplace injuries and are prepared to represent you, no matter the severity of your injury.


In order to file a workers’ compensation claim, you must be covered by an employer. This means that only people who are employed with eligible companies can use this insurance. For example, independent contractors and freelance workers often cannot. 

In Florida, for example, any company with 4 or more employees is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Again, this refers to direct employees employed via W-2. 

All companies are required to have this insurance, even when workers don’t engage in dangerous activity. Office, restaurant, customer service, construction, and many other types of jobs apply. You may even be able to receive compensation for an injury while working from home. 

To claim these benefits, you must have done so while doing your job. If you were under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident, you can not receive benefits. However, you can still receive benefits even if the accident was 100% your fault.


At Werner, Hoffman, Greig & Garcia, we strongly believe that everyone should have access to high-quality legal representation, regardless of their financial circumstances. To make this possible, we operate on a contingency fee basis.

In other words, as our client, you do not have to pay any upfront costs or out-of-pocket expenses for our legal services. We only get paid if we win your case or achieve a settlement in your favor.


Workplace injuries can range from minor to severe and, in some cases, may even cause death. Injuries may be caused by trauma, such as in a car accident. Or, they may be caused by repetitive motion or exposure to chemicals. Common workplace injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries 
  • Spinal cord injuries 
  • Soft tissue injuries (from trauma or stress on the joint) 
  • Broken bones 
  • Burns (chemical, electrical, thermal) 
  • Repetitive motion injuries 
  • Concussions
  • Whiplash 
  • Amputation 
  • Cuts and bruises

No matter the severity of your injury, you should report it to your employer. Failing to report your injury within the allotted time (usually 30 days) can result in loss of benefits.


When filing a workers’ compensation claim, you can expect to receive compensation for the economic damages you experience as a result of your injury. Economic damages include past and future medical bills and lost wages. You may also be able to receive compensation for non-economic damages, like pain and suffering. 

When it comes to medical bills, you can usually receive compensation for the following:

  • Ambulance rides
  • Surgery costs
  • Prescriptions 
  • Hospital stays 
  • Doctor’s visits 
  • Specialist visits 
  • And more 

The amount of compensation you receive depends on a variety of factors that are personal to each claim. The best way to estimate the compensation you receive is by talking with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer.


Facing financial hardship and considering filing for workers’ compensation can be an incredibly stressful and challenging time. But remember, you’re not alone — and there are steps you can take to navigate this situation more smoothly.


Start by familiarizing yourself with the workers' compensation laws in your state. These laws are designed to protect workers like you who have been injured on the job.


Ensure you promptly report your injury to your employer. Delays can impact your eligibility for workers' compensation benefits.


Prioritize your health by seeking immediate medical treatment. Make sure to keep detailed records of your injuries and treatments, as these will be vital to your claim.


Navigating the workers' compensation system can be complex. An experienced workers' compensation attorney can guide you through the process, help you understand your options, and work to ensure your rights are protected.


Your attorney can assist you in filing your workers' compensation claim. Once filed, your employer's insurance company will review your claim and determine whether to accept or deny it.

Throughout this process, it’s crucial to remember that each step can significantly influence the outcome of your case. Your medical records, the accuracy of your injury report, your cooperation with your employer and their insurance company, and the timeliness of your actions all play a key role in securing your benefits

That’s where the team at Werner, Hoffman, Greig & Garcia comes in. Our team specializes in workers’ compensation claims and is deeply familiar with the complexities of the process. We are ready to guide you through every step, from ensuring accurate documentation of your injury to negotiating with insurance companies.

How Do I File A Workers' Compensation Claim?

To file a workers’ compensation claim, you’ll need to report the injury to your employer as soon as possible. You should then obtain and complete a claim form provided by your employer or their insurance company. Ensure you provide all necessary details, such as the nature of the injury, how, when, and where it happened. The completed form should be returned to your employer, who is responsible for submitting it to their insurance provider. Please consult a workers’ compensation attorney to ensure the process is correctly followed and your rights are protected.

After a workplace accident, you should seek medical attention immediately, even if the injury seems minor. Report the incident to your supervisor as soon as possible, and make sure to document everything about the accident and your injuries. Don’t delay in reporting the accident, don’t provide inconsistent descriptions of the accident, and don’t sign any documents from your employer or their insurance company without consulting with a workers’ compensation attorney.

The value of a workers’ compensation claim is determined by several factors. These may include the nature and severity of your injury, the cost of your medical treatment, whether or not you are able to return to work, and if you’re able to return, whether your earnings are impacted by your injury. Each case is unique, and an experienced workers’ compensation attorney can help evaluate your claim’s potential value.

You can request a copy of the workplace accident report from your employer. They are required to document all workplace accidents. If you’re having difficulty obtaining this report, a workers’ compensation attorney may be able to assist.

Pain and suffering typically refer to physical and emotional stress caused by an injury. In most jurisdictions, workers’ compensation does not include compensation for pain and suffering. It primarily covers medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and lost wages. In certain cases, if a third party’s negligence caused your injury, you may be able to file a separate personal injury lawsuit for pain and suffering.

If your employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance, you may be able to sue them directly for damages. Additionally, some states have funds to help workers injured at uninsured companies. It’s essential to consult with a workers’ compensation attorney to understand your options in such a situation.

Some of the most common causes of workplace accidents include falls from heights, slips and trips, being struck by or caught in machinery, overexertion or repetitive strain injuries, exposure to harmful substances, and workplace vehicle accidents. However, injuries can occur in any work situation, and it’s crucial to follow safety guidelines and use protective equipment to minimize the risk.
