If you suffered an on-the-job injury in Central Florida, you have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim and recover money for expenses related to your injury, such as medical bills, lost wages, and reduced earning capacity. The U.S. Department of Labor has appointed officials for each state regarding workers’ compensation. Most private employers in Florida are required to cover their employees under workers’ comp, and those employees can file a claim and receive benefits if they get hurt at work. Unfortunately, the system does not always run as smoothly as it should. If you have had issues getting your claim approved, a Windermere workers’ compensation lawyer can help.

What to Do if Your Employer Denies Your Workers Compensation Claim
Employers in Florida can only deny workers’ comp claims under very limited circumstances. If your Windermere employer turns down a claim where the situation does not fit into a narrow window of approved causes of denial, the injured worker can appeal the decision and get it overturned. This is where the Windermere workers’ compensation lawyers from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine come in.
Just because your injury did not result from negligence on the part of your employer does not give them grounds to deny your workers’ comp claim. Even if the injury was your fault or a result of your own negligence and/or carelessness, you could still recover benefits, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Your Windermere employer can only rightfully deny your claim if they can prove your injury was from gross misconduct or drug/alcohol intoxication.
If you have been denied workers’ comp in Windermere, contact our law firm at 1-800-747-3733 immediately so that we can get to work on an appeal. We will push back and fight for you to get the compensation to which you are entitled by state law.

We Can Help Value Your Workers Comp Claim
The value of your workers’ comp claim in Florida depends on the severity of your injuries and the length of time you need to miss work. A workers’ compensation claim typically pays for medical expenses to treat the injury, lost income from missed work, and reduced future earning capacity.
Act Now to File Within the Statute of Limitations
You do not have unlimited time to file a workers’ compensation claim. If you wait too long, you might run into issues with Florida Statute § 440.39. Once the statute expires, your case can get time-barred if you have not taken action. You can consult a law firm to learn about your options as soon as possible after getting hurt.
