While some sources of employment are more inherently dangerous than others, no one expects to get hurt or sick at work. If you or someone you love suffered an illness or injury while doing your job, you could be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits from your employer. Our law firm will help you pursue benefits and ensure you understand the complex compensation process.
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, our Immokalee workers’ compensation lawyer is on your side. We work hard to ensure your claim is accurate and comprehensive when submitted. If your initial request for benefits is denied, we also help you file an effective appeal with additional information supporting your right to workers’ comp benefits.
Florida Protects Injured Workers
On your own, it can be hard to know what to do after getting injured on the job in Florida. The state is serious about the rights of its injured workers, and our legal team fights hard to ensure you get the care and support the state’s laws entitle you to receive.
According to Florida Statutes § 440.02, any employer with four or more workers is required to provide necessary medical and financial benefits for the time you are unable to work to support yourself and your family.
Workers’ Compensation’s Medical Benefits
If you are hurt at work or diagnosed with a work-related illness, your employer is required to provide you with required medical care from a doctor of their choosing. At no cost, you are also entitled to the following:
- Doctors’ appointments
- Necessary hospital stays
- Necessary physical therapy
- Required medical and lab tests
- Required prescription drugs
- Assistive devices and prosthetics
You are also entitled to reimbursement for treatment-related travel expenses, even including going to and from your pharmacy. Our legal team will ensure your compensation request includes all these health care expenses.
Workers’ Compensation’s Financial Benefits
According to Florida Statutes § 440.15, you are generally entitled to 66 and 2/3 of your take-home pay for the time you receive benefits. The extent of your disabling injury could cause that number to change, so the best way to understand the amount you can receive — and to ensure your income is accurately calculated — is to let our legal team handle calculations and document your salary for you.
Our goal is to obtain the best possible outcome for you.
The State Requires You To Prove The Following Elements Of Your Claim
Knowing you should be able to receive benefits and proving you are entitled to them are two different things. When our law firm supports your claim, we collect evidence and documentation to prove its required components, including:
- Proof that your accident, injury, or illness is the result of your job
- Proof that your scope of employment entitles you to receive benefits
- Proof of your injury, its cause, and your required treatment protocol
- Proof that a preexisting condition was exacerbated by your job
- Proof that all required notifications were made within the allotted time
Your physical and financial recovery matter to our team, so we work hard to ensure you receive all-around client support.
