“Workers have certain rights of compensation…these rights can be limited…we find that the injured workers commonly have ‘third party’ claims with greater rights of compensation…”
If You’ve Been Injured At Work, Don’t Settle For Less Than You Deserve
Work injuries are a very common occurrence. According to OSHA, there were 4,069 workplace fatalities in 2011 alone.
Workers’ compensation is in place for your protection, but it is no guarantee that you will be adequately compensated.
If you’re reading this now, in the wake of an on-the-job injury, you’re probably concerned with your financial well-being. Permanent injuries are rarely compensated as they should be and even short-term impairments can be devastating for your family.
Abrahamson & Uiterwyk has spent the last 25 years aggressively fighting for our clients. You probably want an experienced fighter in your corner if you decide to seek compensation for your injuries.
How Can An Injury Attorney Help You?
Thanks to legislation mandating workers’ compensation, getting covered for injuries sustained at work should be a relatively straightforward process. Unfortunately, the companies responsible for funding your compensation may do everything in their power to minimize the amount that arrives in your pocket. There may be barriers to you getting the compensation you deserve.
- These companies are experts at misappropriating liability and weaseling out of giving the money you deserve.
- Workers’ compensation is designed to mandate payment for your immediate medical concerns rather than provide for your long-term well-being.
- If you have sustained a permanent disability from your workplace injury, the amounts provided from your workers’ comp may fall woefully short of your lifelong income loss.
Fortunately, there is a silver lining. Our personal injury attorneys have worked with over 15,000 injury victims with situations similar to yours. We understand what you’re going through.

There May Be A Liable Third Party
Injuries in the workplace can still be viewed legally from the standpoint of any other injury. In addition to the amounts you are owed from workers’ comp, you may be due additional compensation from the negligence and/or liability of third parties.
At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, third-party liability is our focus. We aggressively pursue every liable party, leveraging our 25 years of experience. Take a look at our case results in the sidebar to see how we have helped some of our clients.
We Don’t Get Paid for Costs or Fees Unless You Win
If you have been injured, the last thing you need on your mind is questioning whether or not to gamble your moderate workers’ comp package on pursuing the full compensation you actually need. Abrahamson & Uiterwyk believes you deserve adequate compensation and we don’t think we should get paid for any costs or fees unless we win.
Our Tampa work injury attorneys operate on a contingency basis, so you don’t pay for any legal costs or fees unless we win or settle your case. Call now for your free consultation at 1-800-753-5203!
Because of the fact that cases involving workers’ compensation injuries may be highly complex and exceedingly specific, our law firm commonly works with other law firms who have considerable experience in each particular case type. Thus, we may be referring these types of cases to a separate firm, with whom we typically associate and work with on a co-counsel basis.
