Sometimes a prolonged recovery after a workers' compensation injury can cause economic harm. Many families of injured South Florida workers, including Ft. Lauderdale, Boca Raton and West Palm Beach, are unable to pay the bills. This is true even if they are receiving workers' compensation benefits. According to NACBA, in South Florida and across the U.S., the number of bankruptcies attributable to workers' compensation and Social Security Disability is climbing. Attorney Randy Zeldin is now representing injured workers and Social Security Disability Claimants for bankruptcy consultations.
Work in South Florida can be hazardous or even fatal your health. According to the AFL-CIO, across the U.S., an average of 15 workers are killed on the job daily and another 11,000 suffered on the job injuries each day!! Studies have demonstrated that the actual toll is higher, because many injuries are never reported because of fear of retribution.
