What are the Most Common Workplace Injuries?
According to the National Safety Council (NSC), the top three leading causes of accidents in the workplace are the result of the following:
- Overexertion: Injuries due to lifting, pushing, turning, excessive physical effort, carrying or throwing.
- Contact with Objects and Equipment: Injuries due to moving objects hitting a worker or a worker coming into contact with an object or equipment.
- Slips, Trips and Falls: Injuries due to workers falling on different levels, jumping to lower levels, or falling from a collapsing structure.
The Law Offices of Adam Baron knows that every work injury is unique and comes with its own set of physical and emotional challenges.

Dealing with the Insurance Company
If you've ever tried to handle your workers' compensation claim by yourself, then you know how difficult it can be reaching your insurance adjuster. Many times, injured workers will complain that they leave message after message for their adjuster only to find that their calls are never returned. But the adjusters can't ignore our workers' compensation lawyers. We aggressively pursue your claim by filing petitions for benefits that the insurance company can't ignore. We will also set the depositions of adjusters that choose not to give our clients the benefits they need.
By Florida law, your insurance company is allowed to select your doctor in order for you to receive benefits. Many of these carefully selected physicians downplay problems in order to reduce the money that the insurance companies need to pay out. In other cases, we have even seen insurance companies refuse to pay for surgeries that their own doctors have recommended.
When you become a client of the Law Offices of Adam Baron, P.A., we deal with the insurance companies on your behalf. Sometimes we send clients to another doctor just to have a second opinion on how severe their injuries actually are.
It is also possible for us to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company to compensate you for lost wages and future medical care. Let us use our 25+ years of expertise in getting you every dollar you're entitled to.
