Titusville, FL Workers’ Compensation
The world is a dangerous place, and unfortunately, no workplace is immune to accidents. Even employees who work in relatively safe environments — such as office buildings or retail outlets — may find themselves injured on the job and unable to return to work. Fortunately, there are workers’ compensation laws that protect the injured and provide financial support for their recovery.
If you or a loved one has been injured on the job and the insurance company has unjustly denied the claim, contact our Titusville office. Our attorneys understand the situation you’re going through, and we will fight tirelessly for your deserved compensation.

What Can a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Do?
You deserve to be fairly compensated for your on-the-job injury, especially if it prevents you from being able to continue earning your usual wages. Our team of skilled workers’ compensation lawyers won’t rest until you receive the rightful restitution for your injury.
The following are some situations that qualify for workers’ compensation:
- Head injuries (concussions, brain injuries)
- Other physical injuries (broken bones, torn ligaments or muscles, herniated discs)
- Occupational diseases and impairments (mesothelioma, loss of hearing or sight)
Who Can File a Workers’ Compensation Claim?
The Division of Workers’ Compensation in Florida works to ensure that injured employees are able to recover damages such as the following:
- Medical expenses
- Temporary partial disability or total permanent disability
- Loss of job, wages, or earning capacity
- Impairment benefits
Your injury could qualify for benefits, and yet an apathetic employer might try to refute your claim. This unethical business strategy occurs far too often and only harms hard-working Americans. If you find yourself in this situation, Morgan & Morgan may be able to help.
How Do You Appeal a Workers’ Compensation Denial?
If your workers’ compensation claim was denied despite meeting the eligibility requirements, you may still be entitled to benefits. Insurance companies and unethical employers may use various tactics to avoid paying out your full compensation, such as claiming your injury came from a previous condition or accusing an employee of fraud. We’re aware of their methods, and we know exactly how to dismantle them.
If your claim has been denied, you still have the option to appeal. You have up to two years from your injury to file your appeal; but if you’re contesting the denial of a specific benefit, you only have one year to file a Petition for Benefits — so don’t wait to contact us.
Can I Afford a Lawyer?
Many other personal injury firms carry expensive price tags for their services, but that’s not something that fits into our philosophy. We believe that everyone should be able to afford comprehensive representation, regardless of their financial status. That’s why our team operates on a contingency-fee basis; that means it costs nothing to hire us and we only get paid if we win. Our fee is taken out of the favorable settlement or jury award, so you never have to stress about paying out of your own pocket.
