Orlando Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Getting injured while at work is an ordeal that no one wants to have to go through. Unfortunately, more often than not, employers will try to avoid having to pay proper compensation for the injuries you sustained while on the job. Additionally, insurance companies will often try to deny your claim or try to minimize the benefits that you rightfully deserve. Should this be the situation in your case, it is important to obtain the proper legal council to ensure you receive the maximum benefits available to you. With over 35 years of experience as an Orlando workers compensation attorney, I know what it takes to be tough with both employers and insurance companies. These cases can be complex and frustrating, so don’t make it more stressful by hiring a less experienced Central Florida workers’ compensation lawyer.
I offer free consultations to determine whether or not your case has a chance to win in court, so you can rest assured that you will not come out of pocket for legal fees just to discover that your lawyer is unable to recover the compensation you should be awarded. The giant insurance companies or the employers who refuse to pay do not intimidate me, and I will stand by you until the end to ensure that justice is served on your behalf.
How To Handle A Claim
There are some essential things that you should know when and if you are injured while at work. First, as the worker, you must report the workplace injury to your employer within 30 days of the specific incident. It is vitally important that you file your injury report as soon as you know that you have sustained an injury. Any time lost will serve as a benefit for the case the employer brings against you. When you report an injury on the job it is important to document, in great detail, the circumstances surrounding your injury. Be sure to include the specific time and date which the injury occurred, along with any witnesses, the cause, and the location. Additionally, be sure to seek an immediate medical evaluation. The extent of the injuries must be documented so that you can prove them in court, should that be necessary. Once you have filed the report, your employer has up to two years before the claim must be filed, so this can end up being a drawn out process if you do not have the proper Orlando workers’ compensation lawyer.
