Recover Compensation for Getting Hurt While Working in the Manufacturing Industry in Florida

Posted on

You've suffered an injury due to an accident that was someone else's fault, you're unable to return to your normal duties and have to take a lesser-paying job. Is there something that can help your situation besides collecting workman's comp?

Firstly, you're not the only one, and secondly, we're here to help. More than 375K Floridians are employed in at least 14K manufacturing companies in:

  • traditional industries - like electronics, printing, food processing
  • modern industries - like laser, photonics, and aerospace or aviation.

But suffering an injury while working happens more often than we think. People get injured, even killed, when working on a Florida company's property or while engaged in a company's business.

If you get hurt while working in the manufacturing industry in Florida, you could sue an independent third party for injuries you sustained while working; for instance, if you used a defective product that caused you harm.

Securing Compensation That Covers the Long-Term Effects of Getting Hurt at a Manufacturing Company

We know that people who have been badly injured on the job may continue to suffer debilitating symptoms for months, years, or in some cases, that stick with them for the rest of their lives. Long-term consequences vary, but several conditions are common following a serious injury, including neurological injuries and chronic pain.

Our legal team also works with the family and many professionals to detail:

  • the past, present, and future impact of the injury, including surgery and care pain management
