Imagine you’re injured on the job and can’t work. Then the medical bills start piling up. This can be an avalanche of financial devastation for an injured employee and his or her family. That’s why Florida workers’ compensation laws offer injured employees coverage for things like medical bills and lost wages. At least, that’s the idea. That’s what you expect, anyway.
In practice, though, it doesn’t always work out that way. Sometimes employers and their insurance companies go to great lengths to avoid paying out a penny — or, at least, to avoid paying injured workers the money to which they’re fully entitled. This could happen to you; perhaps it already has.
Employers and insurers might try to minimize your injury, or claim it’s not work-related. They might suggest you received an unreasonable amount of treatment. Or, they might even demand you return to work too soon after a serious injury. That’s just a sampling of what some injured workers face when trying to claim the benefits they’re owed.
