Your Florida Law Firm For Personal Injury And Workers’ Compensation Claims
If you get seriously hurt in an accident, there is no question that you are going to have medical bills, and it’s likely that you will miss some amount of work as well and lose out on that income at a time when you sorely need it. Financial help may be available to help you deal with the harm you’ve suffered, but your ability to claim compensation and the process for doing so are vastly different depending on whether you got hurt while on the job or not. You might have a workers’ compensation claim or a personal injury claim, depending on when and how the accident happened. You might even have both types of claims in some cases. In those instances, it’s best to have one attorney to help you with both kinds of claims if you can find one who is qualified to do both.

Comprehensive Florida Personal Injury Practice
You have a personal injury claim when you’ve been injured because of the negligence of another. You might be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering, but you’ll need to be able to prove your case to negotiate a full and fair settlement or take the matter to court. Insurance companies take advantage of accident victims who don’t have a lawyer, telling them they don’t have a strong case, and disputing who was at fault or how serious their injuries are. At Chadwick & Chadwick, we know from experience how much your claim is worth and how to build and present a solid case for maximum compensation. Our comprehensive Florida personal injury law practice covers all types of accidents and injuries, including:
Motor Vehicle Accidents – Car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, pedestrian. You must act quickly after a crash and take the proper steps to move your case outside of Florida’s no-fault insurance and recover the full amount of compensation due.
Admiralty & Maritime Law – Special laws apply to accidents on the water. Our Tampa-based law firm is thoroughly familiar with boating accidents and injuries, cruise ship injuries, and longshoreman claims from Florida’s Gulf Coast to the Atlantic.
Serious Personal Injury and Wrongful Death – The more serious the injury, the more important it is to have an experienced lawyer on your side who will be there for you and who understands the significant challenges you are likely to face.
We handle cases involving Premises Liability, Medical Malpractice, Defective Products, Nursing Home Negligence, and more. When another party – a driver, a property owner, a hospital, or a product manufacturer – breaches their duty to act with reasonable care for your safety, our firm is here to hold them accountable to you for the harm they caused.
Navigate Florida Workers’ Compensation Claims and Denials
Florida’s workers’ compensation system is meant to provide you with medical care and wage replacement while you are out for work for any injury or illness you suffered on the job. The system is no-fault and insurance-based, but it isn’t always as easy as it should be. Sadly, Florida’s system often seems tilted more in favor of the employer than the injured worker, and it is all too easy to encounter difficulties pursuing your claim. And of course, these challenges come at a time when you are hurting, out of work, and dealing not just with medical care but countless disruptions in your life. Our workers’ compensation law firm can take on the task of getting your benefits while you focus on your health and getting your life back in order. If your workers’ comp claim has been denied, if you aren’t getting all the benefits you are entitled to, or if your benefits were cut off before you were ready to return to work, call our office to find out how we can help.
