Some occupational injuries may leave employees out of work temporarily, while others can render people permanently unable to return to their jobs. We sit down with clients to discuss their workplace accidents and injuries during a free initial consultation, taking the time to understand the extent of their injuries and the potential long-term effects. Our attorney helps people determine if their conditions may qualify for benefits and guides them through the complicated workers' compensation system. It is our goal to help them obtain the assistance they need, including wage replacement and medical care coverage.
Beyond our service to injured workers, we also help those with qualifying disabling medical conditions or injuries pursue Social Security Disability Insurance. With our Lakeland and Winter Haven locations situated in close proximity to the local Social Security offices, we aid clients in completing and filing the appropriate forms, gathering any necessary documentation, and ensuring they meet any associated requirements and deadlines. We also accept personal injury, nursing home neglect and medical malpractice cases.
Even when it seems clients have all their ducks in a row, our attorney at Kaylor, Kaylor & Leto, P.A., knows an approval for workers' compensation or SSDI benefits is far from guaranteed. When people's claims are unfairly denied, our law office stands by their side, helping them collect the needed supporting documentation and guiding them through the appeals process.
