The Florida Workers’ Compensation Act found in chapter 440 Florida Statutes governs Florida workers’ compensation law. It is a no fault system.
If you are hurt on the job while you are in the course and scope of your employment, you are entitled to workman’s compensation benefits pursuant to Florida Workers’ Compensation Law. Workers Compensation benefits are typically through for profit insurance companies. They are not government benefits. The workers compensation system is extremely complicated and difficult to navigate on your own. You may think the workers’ compensation adjuster is providing you with all the benefits you are entitled to receive. However, we often times find that workmans comp underpaid our clients by thousands of dollars! This often happens as a result of the adjuster improperly calculating your average weekly wage (AWW ), failing to include the wages from your second job, or refusing to pay you when you are on light duty but were let go from your employer for a bogus reason. That is money workers comp wrongfully withheld from you and your family’s pocket when you needed it most! Speak with attorney Greg who can assist you with obtaining your workers’ compensation benefits. As always, the call is free. You pay us nothing unless we obtain benefits for you!
Our workmen compensation lawyer can also assist you with obtaining medical benefits.
Florida workers’ compensation law allows your employer or the workers’ compensation insurance company to choose your doctors. Unfortunately, many workers’ compensation insurance companies use this law to their advantage and put their profits over your health. Our workers’ compensation lawyers often find that the insurance company will send you to doctors who are more interested in making the insurance company happy instead of getting you better. If you are unhappy or dissatisfied with your workman compensation doctor, our workman comp attorneys can assist you in obtaining a different doctor for you’re on the job injuries. Don’t delay, call Greg today. The call is always free.
