When you suffer an injury in an industrial or manufacturing accident in Florida, you are typically entitled to benefits under the workers’ compensation system. Your employer should carry workers’ compensation insurance which can pay for several types of benefits:
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. This means it does not matter who caused your accident or if you contributed to your injuries as long as it occurred in connection with your job, with very few exceptions. While this should make it easy to receive workers’ comp benefits, the truth is more complicated.
For-profit workers’ compensation carriers and your employer may fight your claim or try to minimize the benefits you can receive. They will choose the doctor you see who decides when you are recovered, if you are disabled, and the severity of your injuries. They may claim you are not seriously injured or fully recovered, despite the facts.
A workers’ compensation lawyer in Florida can help you every step of your claims process to protect your rights and fight for the full benefits you are entitled to receive. From filing your claim and building evidence to disputing an undervalued or denied claim, your Florida workers’ comp lawyer will serve as your advocate to protect your best interests.
