Workers’ Compensation Defense
The attorneys at Martinez Roman have over 75 years of experience in the area of Florida workers’ compensation law. We constantly track any legislative bills and judicial rulings in order to best represent our clients. Our clientele includes municipalities, national insurers, and carriers.
Uninsured Employer Defense
Martinez Roman defends uninsured employers against workers’ compensation claims. Navigating Florida workers’ compensation law as an uninsured employer can be both challenging and frustrating. Our attorneys will also assist in compliance issues and make recommendations that allow you to focus on your business rather than potential litigation.
Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Defense
With the second longest coastline in the United States at 1,350 miles, Florida is a haven for longshore and harbor workers’ compensation claims. The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) is governed by federal law and provides for the payment of compensation, medical care, and vocational rehabilitation services to employees.
Even after a trial has ended and a judge has made his or her ruling, the case may be appealed to a higher court. The appellate process requires a different set of rules and procedures. At Martinez Roman, we have experience filing and defending appeals to the First District Court of Appeals and the Florida Supreme Court.
American with Disabilities Act (ADA) Defense
At Martinez Roman we defend businesses facing ADA Title III lawsuits. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity for persons with disabilities in employment, government services, public accommodations, commercial facilities, and transportation.
Work Injury Defense
Work accidents are unfortunately going to happen. We will listen to your needs and goals to determine whether you want an expeditious settlement or require a prolonged defense. We will do our best to calculate and estimate your risk, overall exposure including costs and probabilities of success. We will partner with you and work towards a resolution that works best for you.
