Winter Springs Workers’ Compensation
Winter Springs Workers’ Compensation Law Firm Securing Compensation for clients Injured in Winter Springs and surrounding areas.
No matter what you do for a living, there is the chance you will be injured at work. Your chance of being injured can vary according to the type of work you perform, but there is no occupation where there is no chance of employee injury. Because of this reality, most employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, a type of insurance that compensates injured employees when they suffer injuries on the job.
A workers’ compensation claim is not the same as a personal injury claim. With a personal injury claim, you must prove that another party’s negligence caused you to suffer an injury in order to recover compensation for your related damages. With a workers’ compensation claim, there is no need to prove that another party was negligent – you must only demonstrate that you qualify for the benefits you are seeking.
Florida Workers’ Compensation Requirements
In Florida, workers’ compensation claims are governed by the Division of Workers’ Compensation. As a covered employee, you are required to notify your employer of any injury you sustain on the job within 30 days of the accident. After you have reported the accident, you must undergo an independent medical examination by a doctor from the list of your workers’ compensation provider’s approved physicians. Data from this examination will determine the extent of your injury and by extension, the benefits you are entitled to receive.
What does Workers’ Compensation Cover?
Workers’ compensation coverage provides the following benefits to injured Florida employees:
- Their medical expenses;
- A portion of their lost wages; and
- In some cases, vocational rehabilitation.
An individual’s medical expenses can be more than his or her treatment; it can include his or her prescriptions and need for medical equipment. Similarly, lost wage replacement is not just short-term coverage, but replacement for the income the employee cannot earn for a prolonged period of time because of his or her injury.
Why Work with a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer?
Although filing a workers’ compensation claim can seem fairly straightforward, there are many ways yours can go awry. These include:
- Missed filing deadlines;
- Claim denials based on medical misunderstandings;
- Claim denials based on incorrect filing details; and
- Claim denials based on the false belief that the claimant caused his or her own injury through negligence.
Your lawyer’s job is to support your claim and help you recover the benefits you need. This could mean negotiating with the doctor or with the workers’ compensation insurance provider. In some cases, it means filing a bad faith lawsuit.

“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!”
