Benefits Available to Injured Workers in Apopka
Most job injuries are fall-related. That could be a slip-and-fall or a fall from a height. However, injured workers need not establish negligence or fault. They only have to prove cause to obtain benefits for the following types of disabilities:
- Temporary Total Disability: Most Orange County job injuries involve TTDs, at least initially. These victims are unable to return to work until they heal. So, most receive two-thirds of their average weekly wage for the duration of their disability. Moreover, workers’ compensation also pays for all medical bills.
- Temporary Partial Disability: After a few months, many TTD victims upgrade to TPD status. They are able to work, but must accept light duty or some other lower-paying assignment. So, workers’ compensation continues paying medical bills and also usually pays two-thirds of the difference between the old and new salaries.
- Permanent Partial Disability: Sometimes, the effects of injury linger permanently. For example, a worker with an injured shoulder might permanently lose some range of motion in that joint. In these situations, workers’ compensation usually pays a lump sum based on the nature and extent of the disability.
- Permanent Total Disability: Disabled individuals are not necessarily invalids. Instead, disability is a legal term which means the victim cannot work any longer.
In some cases, injured Apopka workers might be able to file legal claims outside the system. These individuals may be entitled to additional noneconomic damages. Common instances include intentional recklessness on behalf of the employer, a negligent co-worker, or a defective product.

Filing Your Apopka Personal Injury Claim On Time
At The Benenati Law Firm, we understand that accidents can happen to anyone at any time and can change lives forever.
The worker-friendly compensation system is a thing of the past. Instead, the modern Florida workers’ compensation system is a business-friendly system that protects insurance company profits. So, the process is quite cumbersome. Basically, government bureaucrats want victims to give up and either settle their claims for less than full value or abandon them entirely.
Most claims begin with a paper review. A claims auditor reviews the medical records and makes a determination. In nearly all cases, that determination is “no.” It’s important not to get discouraged at this point.
The next phase is usually a trial-like hearing before an administrative law judge. At this hearing, our attorneys can cross-examine witnesses, introduce evidence, and make legal arguments. So, injured victims have a much better chance of obtaining the compensation they deserve. Moreover, we also represent you during settlement negotiations. Many times, we can resolve these cases on favorable terms before the hearing even rolls around.

Don't Just Take Our Word for It
“The Benenati law firm makes you believe that you are the single most important PERSON (not case) to them. Throughout the entire process, they maintained weekly contact with me, asking how I was doing or if I needed anything. I was provided with frequent updates as to how my case was progressing and was pleasantly surprised with the speed at which they were able to reach a substantial settlement. I've had the unfortunate experience of dealing with other well-known personal injury attorneys in Orlando who were unable to provide the level of expertise, care and service that Walter Benenati and his team can!”
“I would like to thank the Benenati Law Firm for helping to take the stress out of dealing with the insurance company and for everyone being very professional and always available to take my calls. The speed of the case being closed exceeded my expectations and any future needs I will definitely be contacting them.”
“My experience with the Benenati Law Firm in Orlando was a great experience. They helped right away after a heartbreaking experience at another law firm. THEY MADE MORE PROGRESS IN MY CASE IN TWO MONTHS THAN 2 YEARS WITH MY FORMER LAW FIRM. I am so grateful.”
