Common Workplace Injuries in Hollywood, FL

Accidents can happen anywhere, and unfortunately with many hard-working employees spending so much time on the job, the workplace is a common site of many accidents.


Under Florida law, most workers should be covered by workers’ compensation insurance in case of a workplace accident or injury. This no-fault insurance should be paid for by your employer and it helps replace lost income, pays for medical bills, and provides other benefits.

The trouble is that some deserving workers have a hard time accessing their rightful benefits when they’re injured. Sometimes, they’re told they don’t qualify, or payments are late or don’t cover their costs. In some cases, employers illegally fail to pay insurance.

If you’re injured on the job and want to protect your right to fair compensation, you can contact Flaxman Law Group at 866-352-9626 for a free accident consultation with a workplace injury claims attorney.

What Common Injuries are Covered by Workers’ Comp in Florida?

In Florida, most workplace injuries that happen during the regular course of work duties are covered by workers’ compensation, as are occupational illnesses. Common injuries in Hollywood and Florida that can lead to workers’ comp claims include:

  • Transportation incidents. These include crashes that happen on the road, in parking lots, or on loading docks and involve pedestrians, trucks, forklifts, and other vehicles.
  • Slips and trips. Loose flooring, spilled liquids, and other dangers, when they aren’t quickly cleaned up, can lead to trip and fall or slip and fall incidents, which in turn can cause broken bones, head injuries, and other serious injuries.
  • Falls. These include falls from heights, such as ladders and scaffolds or falls on the same level. These workplace incidents can result from poor lighting, lack of guardrails, debris, or improper footwear.
  • Workplace exposure. Many employees in Hollywood work around or with dangerous chemicals, gases, dusts, radioactive material, liquids, or other hazardous materials that can cause serious injury. Workplace exposure to harmful materials can cause burns, poisoning, suffocation, illness, or allergic reactions. In addition, exposure to extreme weather or temperatures can lead to heat stroke or frostbite while exposure to electricity that can cause shocks or electrocution. Loud noises in the workplace can also lead to hearing loss.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
