Legal Assistance Following Your Workplace Injury In Panama City
A work injury causes multiple problems simultaneously.

You Can Get Compensation For Traumatic And Repetitive Stress Injuries
We can help workers who suffer traumatic and repetitive stress injuries from:

- Chemical exposure
- Work-related vehicle accidents
- Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents
- Defective machinery and equipment
- Fires, explosions and electrical accidents
- Repetitive motions

A traumatic accident can result in brain injuries, spinal injuries, broken bones, amputations, burns and organ damage. Repetitive stress can cause injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, swollen joints and back strain.
Any of these injuries can result in temporary or permanent disability. We can help you get the workers’ compensation benefits you need if you are disabled.
When Someone Else Is Responsible For Your Injuries
If a negligent third party was responsible for you injury, you may be able to collect workers’ comp benefits as well as additional damages — such as pain and suffering — through a personal injury claim. Typical third parties may include a subcontractor, manufacturer of defective equipment or a motor vehicle driver who causes an accident.
