What Can a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Do?
You deserve to be compensated fairly for an on-the-job injury, especially if it prevents you from working. Our proficient workers’ compensation attorneys will take your case seriously and fight for your compensation. Plus, we’ll never settle for less than you deserve.
Here are a few situations that may qualify for workers’ compensation:
- Head injuries (concussions, brain injuries, etc.)
- Occupational diseases (mesothelioma, hearing/vision loss)
- Other acute physical injuries (broken bones, muscle tears, and herniated discs)
Who Can File a Workers’ Compensation Claim?
Florida’s Division of Workers’ Compensation allows injured workers to recover the following:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Temporary partial/total disability (depending on the severity of your injury)
- Loss of earning capacity (if the injured party can’t earn as much after the injury)
- Impairment benefits
Even though your claim could be rightful, your employer could be complicating the process. An apathetic or unethical employer should not be able to prevent you from receiving your deserved compensation. If you find yourself in this situation, we may be able to help.
How Do You Appeal a Workers’ Compensation Denial?
A denied workers’ compensation claim doesn’t always mean you’re ineligible for benefits. In some cases, insurance companies will claim your injury never happened, didn't occur on the job, or was from a preexisting condition to avoid paying out your restitution. This unethical business strategy is, unfortunately, a common practice.
If your claim was unjustly denied, you still have the right to appeal the decision. You can file an appeal within 2 years of your injury; but, if you are contesting the denial of a specific benefit, you have only 1 year to file a Petition for Benefits.
Can I Afford a Lawyer?
Other firms may carry expensive price tags for their service, but not us. We believe that everyone should be able to afford comprehensive legal protection, regardless of their financial situation. That’s why our team works on a contingency basis, meaning we don’t get paid until you do. Our fee comes out of the approved settlement or jury award, so you never have to worry about paying out-of-pocket for our services.
