IF YOU'VE BEEN INJURED ON THE JOB, YOU'RE ENTITLED TO PAY AND EXPENSES

Employers have a responsibility to provide a safe work environment for their employees. In addition to providing a safe work environment, most employers in the state of Florida are also responsible for carrying workers’ compensation coverage for their employees. 

However, sometimes a workers’ compensation claim is denied when an employer disputes a workplace injury or illness. In other cases, a doctor appointed by an employer determines a worker is able to return to work even though their injuries make it hard to do so. If this has happened to you, the attorneys at Sternberg / Forsythe, P.A. can help in a number of ways.

  1. Filing A Workers’ Comp Claim
  2. Settling Insurance Disputes
  3. Obtain The Correct Benefits

If an injury on the job has rendered you unable to work, you need to know what your options are and if you have a valid workers’ comp claim. At Sternberg / Forsythe, P.A., we offer free case evaluations so you can talk to us about your situation right away  or visit our website to learn more.

Extremely Pleased
From start to finish I was extremely pleased with Attorney Sternberg and his staff. Any phone calls or emails were promptly answered and when I went to mediation I felt that the whole process was explained to me fully. He not only got me a very fair settlement it was done in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend this firm and thank them for all they did for me.

Excellent attorney
Scott Sternberg got me all of my workers' compensation benefits quickly. He negotiated a fair lump sum settlement for me. I strongly recommend Attorney Scott Sternberg for anyone who gets injured on the job.

I highly recommend
Mr. Sternberg is a very knowledgable and trustworthy attorney. He has his clients best interest. He was very supportive of all that I was going through both physically and emotionally during my workers compensation case, helping me during a very stressful time in my life. I am very grateful for his guidance and steady presence (also for his staff) throughout the lawsuit.

An excellent attorney in his field
From start to finish, a quality attorney and highly organized law firm. They kept on top of my case from beginning to end and I never felt neglected in any aspect of my dealings with them. I have already given the firm name to several other friends with similar legal cases. Their knowledge of the workman's Comp law was above reproach.

Client review - current and former
Mr. Sternberg handled my workers compensation claim. He was very responsive throughout my workers' compensation claim and is very quick to return my calls. The workers compensation system was very frustrating, but Mr. Sternberg and his paralegal have been very helpful and sensitive to my situation. He is currently pursuing a social security disability claim for me. I would recommend Mr. Sternberg to my friends and family.

The worst!
If you hire this attorney, prepare to be manipulated, lied to and played games with. You will leave messages for your attorney, because everybody is busy when you call. I left messages for a week before someone called me back and was told they had problems with their answering service. I was told the check is in the mail, after 6 days of not getting it, I finally had to threaten calling the bar association just to speak with someone, who then said, that person who was supposed to send it was out of town... I believe that would give you any garbage statement to shut you up and get off the phone. Personally, I will never use this firm again nor will i recommend anyone to them.
