When you have been hurt at work, you need money to help you pay for your treatment and get you back on the right financial track. Sometimes, getting the workers’ compensation claim you deserve is made unnecessarily difficult. You may be asked to produce paperwork you don’t really understand, or your claim may be denied for any number of given reasons.

At Hoskins, Turco, Lloyd & Lloyd, we understand the worry and frustration that can come from filing a workers’ comp claim. That is why our Florida workers’ compensation lawyers fight hard for Treasure Coast residents to get the settlements they need. We provide assistance with filing workers’ comp claims, documenting evidence that your injury was work-related, establishing all of your necessary treatment expenses, and arguing for your right to the maximum available benefits.

Insurance carriers and employers have a financial motivation to reduce the amount of workers’ compensation claims they pay out. As a result, you may face an uphill battle when trying to file your claim after you get seriously injured on the job in Florida.

A workers’ compensation lawyer in Florida can use their knowledge of insurance laws and the processes insurance companies use to verify a claim so that your claim can have the maximum chances of success.

Florida Laws Make Claiming Workers’ Compensation Tougher than Most States

ian_lloyd

Filing for workers’ comp after a work-related injury can be tough in any state, but in Florida, injured employees have fewer rights, and insurance carriers have more opportunities to deny a claim.

For instance, your insurance company and employer get to tell you what doctor you must visit to verify your injury and whether or not you are able to return to work. Since you cannot get a second opinion, you may find yourself frustrated with a healthcare provider that claims you are less injured than you actually are.

Secondly, Florida insurance regulations have a strict interpretation of a partial or total disability. Your employer could argue that you are able to return to work in a diminished role with fewer earnings, hurting your ability to claim replacement income.

You deserve to have the full-time and money it takes to heal from all of your injuries. Don’t let insurers or employers intimidate you into thinking you don’t have legal options. A workers’ compensation lawyer in Florida can assist you with your case and the appeal denials you have recently received.
