Florida Laws Make Claiming Workers’ Compensation Tougher than Most States
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.

What Our Clients are Saying
I was told by a friend that Steve Hoskins was a good attorney. I called when I had my accident, he held my hand throughout the whole process. Just because you get in an accident doesn’t mean your life is over. They helped me through every step with respect. If anyone ever asked me I would highly recommend Mr. Hoskins. They treated me like family. It definitely has been a pleasure working with him. He was nice and very respectful to me, I will be paying it forward.
We have used this firm for many legal issues. From the front desk to the courtroom, the compassionate people in this firm make us feel like family. Wins or losses aside, we always feel they did their very best for us. The fees are well within the FL average, and well worth the dollars spent. Mostly the little extra the assistants do is the glue that holds the office together.
We have recommended the firm at least every other month for one of the many types of law they are proficient with, for the past 18 years

They exceeded all of my expectations. Specifically my attorney Taylor Hoskins. They dealt with the insurance companies, doctors, and so much more. I was involved in a motorcycle accident and needed help desperately. Not only did they deal with the issues of the lawsuit, they treated me with compassion and care. I also had to get disability and they took care of that. I received disability in only 5 months! All of the staff was caring and hands on. There was not one time that I was disappointed! Not once. I highly recommend this law firm.
