Workers' Compensation Benefits
Laws in Florida protect workers and try to provide safe and healthful workplaces for every employee in the state. Despite this, not everyone obeys the law. Negligence, defective products and other problems cause many thousands of accidents in the workplace each year. Your employer is required to carry workers' compensation insurance coverage for you and should give you a workers' compensation claim to complete and return to him or her. If you are injured, workers' compensation is meant to provide you with benefits — including medical care coverage, financial help, and job retraining. These benefits are crucial to recovering from a workplace injury. However, even though you are covered by workers' compensation, you may not get all the benefits you are entitled to. That's why you should call the qualified Hollywood Workers' Compensation Lawyers at Flaxman Law Group if you have been injured on the job.
Workers' compensation fraud has led many insurance companies to tighten regulations. Now, aggressive carriers can look even at legitimate workers' compensation claims with a somewhat jaded eye. Some insurance carriers may claim that your workers' compensation claim is not legitimate and may try to deny you full benefits. Insurers may try to claim you haven't been injured, or they may claim that the injury is not serious or does not qualify for workers' compensation benefits. Some insurance carriers may try to claim that your policy does not cover specific benefits. Most insurers have many attorneys on staff and most workers are intimidated about dealing with insurers. However, you deserve the benefits you qualify for — and Flaxman Law Group can help ensure that you get coverage. We have helped many people in Hollywood and many other cities throughout Florida.
