Your Rights After A Workplace Accident

At The Law Office of Dennis Dean Smejkal, P.A., I am dedicated to protecting the rights of workers. I have more than two decades of experience representing workers injured in workplace accidents in Orlando and throughout Central Florida.

File A Workers' Compensation Claim

Filing for workers' compensation benefits can be difficult on your own. Do you understand your rights? Do you know what documentation needs to be completed to help the board evaluate your claim?

Contact me if you have been injured in an accident at work. I will protect your rights.

I will help you through all of this. I understand workers' compensation laws in Florida and how the process needs to be handled. I will sit down with you, evaluate your specific accident to determine employer negligence and guide you through the process of filing a claim.

Handling All Types Of Work Accidents

I have extensive experience representing workers injured in all types of workplace accidents, including:

  • Repetitive trauma
  • Slip and falls or trip and falls
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Accidents involving machinery or other equipment
  • Exposure to unsafe environment or burns
  • Theme park accidents, including at Walt Disney World

Determining Who Can Be Held Liable

Diligent evaluation of your claim is necessary to determine what contributed to the accident and who can be held liable. You may be able to file a claim against your employer and other parties depending on the specific factors of your case. I have handled claims filed against all types of parties under the following protocol:

  • Exclusive remedy— workers' compensation claim
    • Employer negligence and/or employee negligence
      • Third-party claim
        • Co-employer negligence and third-party claim
