The workers’ compensation system in South Florida attempts to streamline the process for handling work-related injuries and illnesses, such as a loss of limb, back injury, or repetitive strain injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome. The system generally provides fixed remedies to employees suffering from work-related injuries without requiring the employee to prove fault, thereby minimizing the need for litigation and its associated costs. Benefits from workers’ compensation insurance may include medical care, temporary disability benefits, permanent disability benefits, vocational rehabilitation, and death benefits.
The workers’ compensation system is typically an alternative to filing a civil lawsuit for a personal injury claim, and in most cases, you may not pursue both avenues for compensation for an injury.
Mr. David M. Cohen, P.A. was admitted to the bar of Florida in 1993. He has been an active member of the Friends of 440 Scholarship Fund, a charitable organization whose purpose is to make the dream of a college education become a reality for eligible students who are dependent and descendants of a parent who has been injured or killed in the course and scope of their employment and who receive benefits under the Florida Workers Compensation Law.
Mr. Cohen graduated from the University of Maryland at College Park in 1990 and he is also a graduate of Nova Southeastern University School of Law in 1993. He interned at a very prestigious workers’ compensation law firm, learning many of the inside secrets of claims handling by insurance companies. However, rather than continuing to defend such claims, he decided to use his experience and knowledge to the advantage of the injured parties. As a result, Mr. Cohen has represented only the injured parties against insurance companies since 1993. He has been practicing law since 1993 before opening his own law firm in 2001. He has extensive knowledge and experience with jury trials and administrative hearings before judges of compensation claims. Mr. Cohen’s law practice encompasses the entire state of Florida.
