St. Augustine, Florida contains the longest-standing port in the continental United States and is frequently referred to as “the nation’s oldest city.” With about 12,157 residents making up St. Augustine’s population, the area also receives tons of visitors passing through Northern Florida. With convenient access to several beaches and museums, St. Augustine is a highly navigated area and is located only 5 miles east of Interstate 95, and 40 miles south of Jacksonville.
Taking into account the bustling population of St. Augustine and its large amount of commuters, several job positions and businesses contribute to the city’s economy. Many employees working in St. Augustine would like to believe that injury or illness does not ever arise out of or in the course of various kinds of employment. However, although rules of procedure and safety regulations are issued by state and federal entities, some employers, managers, or contractors fail to maintain a danger-free working environment. This kind of negligence on the part of an individual or group in-charge often leads to workers suffering serious illness, injury, and even death.
When an employee endures an injury or develops an illness due to an unsafe working space, a wide range of factors not only influence their physical and mental health, but also their financial constancy. If an employer is negligent and allows safety risks to go unnoticed or if employees are not property trained and personal injury or wrongful death occurs as a result, workers’ compensation benefits may not be enough to fully compensate injured victims and their families.
When taking on employers or any other individual or large group responsible for a work-related injury or illness, the legal knowledge and skill of a St. Augustine workers’ compensation lawyer may be obtained. Do not allow the chance to receive just compensation pass you by. Instead, seek adequate legal counsel from the experienced personal injury attorneys at Farah and Farah.
