Workers' Compensation

Our firm is one of the established workers' compensation practices in south Florida. Led by founding attorney Howard Grossman, a Florida Bar Board-Certified Emeritus Specialist in worker's compensation law, we help people hurt or sickened in the workplace apply for and receive workers' compensation benefits.

We help injured employees throughout Florida from our offices in Boca Raton and Clewiston.

Workers' compensation is a program designed to help people who are injured or fall ill at work. Under the workers' compensation system, injured workers are supposed to quickly receive disability assistance, medical care, and wage replacement benefits without regard to the employer's fault for the injury. This arrangement avoids drawn-out lawsuits by workers against employers to get the money they need immediately. However, oftentimes the employer or carrier contests the payment of benefits or refuses to provide needed medical care.

Most people think of construction accidents or assembly-line injuries when they think of workers' compensation. At Howard S. Grossman, P.A., we help people with these types of "traditional" workers' comp injuries, but we also help people in more unusual situations, including EMT and health care workers exposed to Hepatitis-C, HIV/AIDS, and other communicable illnesses. We help with repetitive stress injuries, such as carpal tunnel and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. We also help injured longshoremen and harbor workers receive benefits under the Longshore and Harbor Workers' compensation program.

If a worker is temporarily or permanently disabled, the Workers Compensation Act provides ongoing disability payments for a limited time during the disability. We can help prove the extent of your disability and make sure that your benefits match your needs, whether you face:

  • Permanent total disability
  • Permanent partial disability
  • Temporary total disability
  • Temporary partial disability
  • Need for further medical treatment.

Workers' compensation may not be your only recourse. In many instances, someone other than the employer shares responsibility. If another person or company helped bring about your workplace injury or illness, we apply our knowledge of personal injury and negligence law to help you pursue those people for recovery above and beyond workers' compensation benefits.

At Howard S. Grossman, P.A., we are a total resource for injured people. If you or a member of your family has an injury or an illness originating in the workplace, contact us for legal advice on your workers' compensation claim. We stand ready to maximize your benefits under the Florida workers' compensation system.
