Work Injury Lawyer Discusses Compensation
In Florida, injured employees are typically eligible for workers compensation in job-related injuries. Moreover, your eligibility exists at your workplace or during employment off-site. Accordingly, if you cause your own injury while working, then workers compensation insurance applies. If you’re at fault, as your work injury lawyer I know workers comp may be your only option.
However, if your harm results from a non-employer, then you may pursue a separate liability claim. Importantly, additional liability claims only exist when someone outside your employer caused your harms. This action is called a “third party action.” As your work injury lawyer, I pursue these third parties in addition to workers compensation benefits.
Work Injury Lawyer Pursues Medical Benefits and More
Accordingly, as you see, your claim may proceed on two tracks: workers compensation and third party liability. As your work injury lawyer, I’ll pursue both for you. Depending on your circumstances, I may refer your workers comp claim to counsel I know and trust, and then proceed on your liability claim.
In each instance, my goal is to recover maximum compensation for you from all sources.
Be aware your workers comp health benefits begin soon after your injury. Moreover, this process has a few steps. First, notifying your workers compensation insurance company about your work-related injury. Second, insurance determines whether there’s coverage for your injury or illness under Florida law.
Once this occurs, as your work injury lawyer I make sure your medical benefits flow without interruption. Your workers comp must:
- Provide an authorized physician
- Pay for all authorized medically necessary care and treatment related to your injury or illness
- Provide a one-time physician change within five business days after your written request
As your Fort Myers work injury lawyer, I enforce your health benefits. No comp carrier should play games with your well-being. Moreover, authorized treatment and care generally includes: doctor visits, hospital, medical devices and medication, and related travel expenses.
