Insurance companies and unethical employers have been known to interfere with your application to avoid paying you what you deserve.

How Does Workers’ Compensation Work?
Workers’ compensation is an insurance program that offers financial assistance to those who are unable to work due to an on-the-job injury. Employers are legally required to have this insurance, as it mitigates their liability if an employee becomes injured. Florida allows up to 30 days to report the injury to your employer, but you should inform them of the situation as soon as possible.
The insurance company could reach out with an initial settlement offer. We would review this offer, determine if it meets the compensation you deserve, and, if not, negotiate until a settlement can be reached. We understand how important your compensation is, which is why we’ll never let a third party devalue your claim.
What Injuries Qualify for Workers’ Compensation?
Almost any on-the-job injury can qualify for workers’ compensation, but here are a few common examples:
- Head and neck injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Occupational conditions (Mesothelioma, hearing/sight loss)
- Burns (both chemical and heat)
- Injuries to limbs or extremities
- Repetitive motion/aggravation injuries
Florida’s workers’ compensation program is designated as a “No-Fault” system, meaning that even if the employee caused their accident, they can still receive compensation for their injuries. There is no need to prove negligence, which allows us to focus solely on your restitution.
How Can I Appeal?
To appeal a workers’ compensation denial, you must file a Petition for Benefits with Florida’s Division of Workers’ Compensation. This process can be difficult, so it’s recommended that you retain an attorney you can trust to guide you through the remainder of the legal proceedings. Our team can review your medical records, consult experts, and interview witnesses to give you the best chance of securing your compensation.
We strongly believe that everyone should be able to afford proficient legal representation, especially during a difficult time in their life. That’s why we operate on a contingency—meaning it costs nothing out-of-pocket to join our team. Our fee is taken from the jury award or favorable settlement so you don’t have to stress about another expense during your recovery.
