As a utility worker, you put your life on the line every day you report to work. When you suffer a serious injury, you expect the workers’ compensation system to be there for you. The no-fault workers’ compensation system in Florida can provide medical benefits, lost wages, and disability benefits to injured workers. Unfortunately, receiving the benefits you deserve isn’t always easy.
Workers’ compensation insurance companies operate for a profit. Their goal is to deny claims whenever possible and attempt to minimize payouts. This means many legitimate workers’ compensation claims are denied or undervalued. Receiving benefits also requires completing a lot of paperwork with strict deadlines and presenting a case to show the extent of your injuries.
A Florida workers’ compensation lawyer can help you with your claims process by handling the administrative tasks, safeguarding your legal rights, working with the insurance company on your behalf, and fighting for the full benefits you deserve. If your claim is denied, your lawyer can help you appeal your case with evidence of your injuries and your accident.
