Morales & Cerino, P.A. can help if you sustained injuries at work in South Florida
Any worker in any industry, from a typist who spends most of the day staring at a computer screen to a construction worker who operates an industrial crane, may experience a work-related injury. A slip and fall accident, equipment malfunction, fire, or even the repetitive motion of one’s job duties can cause serious injuries that require medical treatment. These injuries may interfere with one’s ability to work or may leave a worker permanently disabled and unable to work at all.
If you were injured at work or have been diagnosed with a medical condition caused by your work environment or job duties, do not wait to talk to a Hialeah work injury lawyer at Morales & Cerino. You will need to report your injury to your employer as soon as possible, but you may find that your claim is delayed, that you are unhappy with the doctor you are sent to, or that your claim is denied outright. A lawyer who is experienced with workers’ compensation and personal injury cases for work-related injuries can protect your right to full benefits.
