Altamonte Springs Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Altamonte Springs Worker’s Compensation Law Firm Securing Compensation for clients Injured in Altamonte Springs and surrounding areas.

Altamonte Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Being a worker in Florida may in itself be a dangerous job. To be sure, in a single year in the state, there were more than 300 fatal workplace injuries reported, and many more non-fatal injuries.

While there is nothing that can fully compensate a worker who is seriously injured on the job, workers’ compensation insurance is designed to offset some of the costs associated with a work injury, including medical costs and a percentage of lost wages. If you have been injured on the job, our Altamonte workers’ compensation attorney can help you pursue the compensation you deserve.

Who’s Covered in Florida?

In Florida, nearly all employers, with only a few exceptions, are required to purchase workers’ compensation insurance for their employees. This type of no-fault coverage is designed for workers who are injured while performing work-related tasks. In exchange for no-fault benefits (i.e. the injured worker does not have to prove the fault of any party), the worker is also barred from filing a suit directly against the employer; the employer is immune from liability.

Benefits Provided Under Workers’ Compensation

There are three primary benefit types available to employees under workers’ compensation insurance:

  • Medical benefits. Employees are entitled to all necessary and reasonable medical coverage.
  • Lost wage compensation. There are four types of wage-replacement benefits:
    1. Temporary total disability benefits – intended for those who cannot work;
    2. Temporary partial disability benefits – intended for those who can work, but not at the same capacity that they could prior to injury;
    3. Impairment income benefits – benefits based on a permanent impairment rating above zero percent; and
    4. Permanent total disability benefits – which are intended for those who will never be able to work again.
  • Death benefits. If a workplace injury results in death, funeral expenses, educational benefits to the surviving spouse, and financial compensation to dependents may be available.

How to Recover Workers’ Compensation Benefits

If you are injured while working in Altamonte Springs, it is important that you take steps immediately to ensure your right to benefits. These steps include:

  • Report the injury to your employer as soon as possible, but never more than 30 days after its occurrence.
  • Get medical care, and be sure that the doctor who treats you is authorized by your workers’ compensation insurance provider.
  • Report the injury to the insurance company. Typically, your employer will be responsible for doing this after you provide notice of the injury; however, you are responsible for following up and making sure that it is actually done.
  • Follow the doctor’s orders, as failing to do so may result in a decrease in compensation.
  • Call an attorney – when you work with an attorney, you improve your chances of getting your maximum compensation amount.

Keep in mind that it is not uncommon for employers to deny employees benefits, for an insurance company to dispute the location or cause of the accident to avoid liability, or for an insurance company to state that injuries are “pre-existing” and therefore not eligible for coverage. If you encounter any of these issues, call a legal professional immediately.

“We were very impressed with professionalism no matter who we spoke to when we called the office. We were always treated with respect and kindness. The process was very smooth and there were no surprises. The whole procedure was explained beforehand and the process was exactly as explained. We were very embarrassed at having to file bankruptcy but Mr. Benenati and his staff always made us feel at ease and helped us to maintain our dignity through a very difficult time. We cannot thank them enough for helping us to get a fresh start!”
