Worker’s Compensation Claims in Miami, Florida
If you were hurt on the job in Miami, Florida, you may be entitled to make a worker’s compensation claim. Under Florida law, most employers are required to have worker’s compensation insurance. Florida’s worker’s compensation program offers various benefits to injured workers. These benefits can include medical benefits, compensation for lost wages due to missed time at work, impairment benefits, permanent total disability benefits, and death benefits to workers who have passed away. Medical benefits can include coverage of hospital and doctor’s visits, physical therapy, testing, drugs, prosthetics, and other nursing care that might be required. The amount of money a person might be able to collect in lost wages will depend on the extent of the injury and resulting disability. Sometimes, individuals might not receive the disability rating they believe they deserve and may need to contest the opinion of doctors selected by the worker’s compensation insurance carrier. The difference between being deemed partially disabled or totally disabled can mean highly different settlement amounts for you and your family. And sometimes, employers might claim that a worker isn’t entitled to receive worker’s compensation benefits at all. Has your worker’s compensation benefit claim been denied? Do you have questions about whether you are receiving the worker’s compensation settlement you might deserve? Is your employer telling you that you don’t qualify for worker’s compensation, but you were injured on the job? Orlando R. Murillo, P.A. is a worker’s compensation attorney in Miami, Florida who may be able to assist you with the claims process. Contact our worker’s compensation law firm today.
