Workers’ Compensation Claims
Workers’ compensation accidents and claims occur with unfortunate frequency in Central Florida – there are in fact thousands of workers’ compensation claims reported in Orlando and Central Florida each month. Most individuals suffering from on-the-job accidents with injuries in Florida are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits under Florida Statute Chapter 440. Through years of litigating workers’ compensation claims, however, Mr. Smith has seen valid claims frequently denied. He has also seen insurance companies frequently deny valid medical claims or pay disability benefits incorrectly or not at all. In addition to the physical injuries, being injured on the job often results in severe financial hardships for injured workers, and having an experienced attorney who is willing to take your case to trial if needed is extremely important. Be sure to speak with a workers’ comp lawyer as soon as possible after your accident to preserve your rights and, when it is time to retain an attorney, be sure that the one you hire has both the experience and drive to take your case to trial if necessary.
