How Much Could Your Hollywood, FL Workplace Injury Really Cost?

If you work in Hollywood, FL, you may be exposed to various hazards that could cause you an injury. No matter where you work, whether it’s a construction site or an office, there are risks all around you on your job and unfortunately American workers are injured every day.


Whether it’s a slip and fall, a car accident, a burn, or a cut, you may end up with medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering after an on-the-job injury. But how much could your workplace injury really cost you?

The answer depends on many factors, such as the severity of your injury, the treatment you need, the length of your recovery, and the impact on your ability to work and enjoy life. However, some general estimates can give you an idea of what to expect.

Types of Costs You May Face After a Hollywood Workplace Injury

After your Hollywood work injury, you may face many costs, including:

  • Medical bills, such as rehabilitation, doctor visits, survey, emergency room bills, medication, and ongoing medical expenses
  • Increased medical insurance expenses in the future if you have suffered a permanent injury that will now be a preexisting condition
  • Lost time at work, which means lost wages
  • Lost opportunities at work, such as missed training and missed opportunities for advancement while you’re recovering
  • Personal care costs, including the cost of at-home help if you need it
  • Transportation costs, including the expenses associated with going to doctor’s appointments
  • Incidental costs, such as the cost of adding a ramp to your home if you need a wheelchair because of your injury
  • Reskilling and school costs, if you can’t return to your job and need additional training to qualify for a different job

Workers’ compensation insurance covers most workers in Florida and can help you defray some of your costs. Workers’ comp is a no-fault insurance that allows workers to claim benefits if they’re injured at work or suffer an occupational illness.

The problems are two-fold. First, while workers’ comp is supposed to help workers get benefits fast, in reality there are sometimes delays or even denials of legitimate claims. In some cases, employers illegally fail to carry the insurance for their workers.

Secondly, workers’ comp does not always cover all the costs of a workplace injury. The benefits cover part of a workers’ missed wages and all needed medical care. They do not cover incidental costs, pain and suffering, and some other losses.

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
