Tampa Workers' Comp Attorneys
After suffering an injury in an accident, it is common for other injuries to develop later on that many people would assume are unrelated. If you have developed pain in multiple body parts in the days, weeks or months since your accident, it is important to discuss your legal options with a workers' compensation lawyer. Most insurance carriers will, as a matter of business practice, deny any new or additional body parts or medical conditions not claimed to be injured at the time of the accident. A person can develop high blood pressure as sequela, digestive problems from medications, pain in another knee or the back from walking with a limp, etc.
The experienced lawyers of Feldman Morgado have broad experience handling workers' compensation claims. We have helped hundreds of clients recover benefits for their physical, financial and personal losses by establishing the liability of employers in a wide range of workers' compensation matters.

What Is a Sequela?
A sequela is a pathological condition that results from a disease, injury or other trauma. For instance, neck pain is a common sequela of whiplash or other trauma sustained in a car accident. Sequela of a traumatic brain injury can include headaches, dizziness, anxiety, depression and other symptoms.
While the insurance companies of employers will attempt to manipulate physicians into saying that these symptoms are not related to injuries, as long as the original accident is the major contributing cause, they are still responsible for providing benefits.
