Fight For Your Rights

Even though Florida workers’ compensation laws are set up to protect workers who were hurt on the job, the benefits can never be truly guaranteed to every single employee. Often times, employers and their powerful workers’ compensation insurance carriers try to downplay the seriousness of an injury or even suggest the condition was preexisting or arose out of an incident outside the workplace.

Sometimes, claimants may attempt to handle their own workers compensation claims themselves, thinking the insurance company will do the right thing. Unfortunately, these same individuals may have their claims denied, forcing them to hire a Florida workers’ compensation attorney to help them fight for their rights.

It Is A Good Idea To Get A Workers’ Compensation Attorney?

It is almost always a good idea to at least speak to a workers’ compensation attorney about the nature of your case. The Florida workers’ compensation attorneys of Barnett, Lerner, Karsen, & Frankel, P.A. offer free initial consultations to workplace injury victims to help them under their legal options.

Having an attorney from the very start of a workplace injury claim provides a multitude of benefits to the injured worker. This includes:

  • Having necessary paperwork filled out properly and sent in within time limits
  • Estimating the value of the claim
  • Create a legal strategy and leverage the power medical evidence
  • Letting employers and insurance companies know the claimant is taking the claim seriously

What If I Have A Serious Injury?

Injured workers suffering from serious, debilitating workplace injuries should absolutely hire a workers’ compensation attorney. Some claimants may believe because they have a severe injury the insurance company will understand the seriousness of the situation but that notion is not necessarily true.

Insurance companies may still attempt to downplay the seriousness of an injury and their “independent” medical examiner may not give full credence to the breadth of a victim’s injuries.

Why Do I Need A Workers’ Compensation Lawyer?

Employees filing workers’ compensation claims should always consider hiring or at the very least speaking to an attorney about their case. However, there are some situations where retaining legal counsel can be important.

Scenarios where claimants should consult a workers’ compensation lawyers include:

  • Denial of workers’ compensation claims
  • Delay in disbursal of benefits
  • The insurance carrier fails to offer adequate income and medical benefits
  • The victim suffers a permanent or total disability impacting their future earning potential
  • The employee was terminated or his or her career suffered because of employer retaliation
  • A third-party may have been at-fault for the workplace accident

Experienced workers’ compensation attorneys should be familiar with much more than just filing claims, in fact they should absolutely be prepared to take the claim all the way through the mediation and hearing process to get their clients the benefits they deserve. Insurance companies have years of experience denying claims and benefits so victims should have an attorney on their side working equally hard for them.
