Panama City Work Injury Lawyers
Protect Your Right to Compensation
Employers and their insurance companies have the unfortunate tendency to downplay workplace injuries and minimize the compensation offered to the victim as much as possible. However, being injured in the workplace can have serious ramifications that impact your physical and financial well-being. In order to ensure you receive the compensation you are due, it is advisable you seek the counsel of an experienced Panama City work injury attorney.

Understanding Workers’ Compensation
Even when the proceedings are not contentious, an attorney can assist in simplifying the process of receiving workers’ compensation benefits. Workers who are injured on the job are typically entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other costs. The amount of compensation you may be eligible to receive depends on how your injuries are categorized.
The severity of your injuries can be considered under any of the following:
- Temporary total disability – unable to work for the immediate future
- Temporary partial disability – able to work, but with restricted duties
- Permanent total disability – can never work again
- Impairment income benefits – compensation for never regaining pre-accident condition of health
