Workers’ Compensation Claims By Theme Park Workers
Florida’s large theme parks — such as Disney World, Busch Gardens and Sea World — employ thousands of people. With so many workers, it only makes sense that many of them would suffer work-related injuries and need help with workers’ compensation claims.
The Lawrence Law Firm — with offices in Orlando and other Florida locations — has a long track record of success representing injured theme park workers in their workers’ compensation claims against their employers.
We have gone up against some of the largest theme park employers — including the Walt Disney Company — and won workers’ compensation cases for our clients.
A Success Story: Workers’ Comp Claim Against Major Theme Park
As one of many examples of The Lawrence Law Firm‘s successful record of handling workers’ compensation claims for theme park workers, we recently represented an industrial mechanic who suffered a neck injury while working at a major theme park. He had surgery to relieve a herniated disc, but four months later he went back to work and blew out another disc.
The theme park denied his workers’ compensation claim, arguing that his injury was unrelated to work. We gathered expert opinions from three different neurosurgeons to show that our client’s injury was, in fact, caused by his job.
The theme park settled with our client right before trial, for a confidential but satisfactory amount.
Why Consult A Lawyer After A Workplace Injury?
Many large employers — including theme parks — treat their employees as expendable resources. If you are hurt on the job at a theme park, you might find that the theme park would rather get rid of you than pay your workers’ compensation claim.
However, as an employee injured while on the job, you are entitled by law to workers’ compensation to help pay your medical bills and lost wages. It is illegal for your theme park — or other — employer to fire you after an injury or for them to deny your workers’ compensation claim.
