Choosing A Doctor

Denial Of Claim

Workers’ compensation is intended to protect the injured by providing coverage for loss of income and medical expenses in the case of a work-related injury or illness. However, the claims process isn’t always any easy one. In many instances the Employer/Carrier will deny coverage of your medical benefits and payment of your indemnity benefits despite the fact that you were injured at work.

Filing Your Claim Or Appeal

Filing a workers’ compensation claim on your own can be a difficult task and you may have found that it can also lead to a denial of your claim. If you have been denied workers’ compensation benefits, or you are not getting the medical attention you deserve, or you are not getting paid for the time you’re missing from work, the next step is to file a Petition for Benefits.

Negotiating A Settlement

You have been the victim of a work-related accident or are suffering an illness due to prolonged poor working conditions. How do you receive the compensation you deserve for your suffering? Negotiating a workers’ compensation settlement is a complex process that requires an examination of the specific facts of your case in order to determine the appropriate amount of compensation. A workers’ compensation Judge can never award you a settlement for your injuries. The only way to settle a workers’ compensation case is by agreement of the parties. If you’re a Medicare recipient, there are certain legal requirements that must be followed prior to negotiating a settlement of your claim. To achieve the best possible result, you should hire an experienced workers’ compensation law firm to represent you and help negotiate your claim. The team at WorkInjuryRights.Com™ will guide you in achieving the best possible result for your case.

Insurance Companies

In Florida, most employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This type of insurance covers their workers if they are hurt on the job. In exchange for a system to receive benefits such as disability and medical benefits without proving that the accident was caused by their employer, only that it happened on the job, employees are generally barred from suing their employers after an accident. Workers’ compensation helps employers by mitigating their risk of lawsuits.

Hearings

For many injured workers, one of the most stressful and confusing aspects of a workers’ compensation claim is the workers’ compensation trial. If you file a claim for benefits and cannot reach a fair settlement with your employer, your case goes to trial. This evidentiary hearing allows your workers’ compensation lawyer to gather and present evidence supporting your claim.
