500 Million Recovered for Florida Injury Victims
An on-the-job injury leaves you with much more than physical pain. In addition to your injury, you have to worry about how you’re going to protect your livelihood. In some cases, workers even fear their employer will find a reason to eliminate their position.
The law in Florida requires most employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Regardless of whether your accident was your fault, you are entitled to these benefits. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation insurance companies don’t always treat injured workers fairly. If you have been denied benefits, or your benefits have been delayed, you need the help and skill of an experienced workers’ compensation team.
The lawyers at The Law Offices of Paul K. Schrier, PLLC are proud advocates of workers’ rights. You go to work every day and put in an honest day’s work. Many people do this day after day, and year after year. You deserve to receive the benefits to which you’re entitled. We are committed to helping you get them.
If Your Workers’ Compensation Benefits Have Been Denied
A denial of workers’ compensation benefits can be a devastating blow. When you’re injured and watching a stack of medical bills pile up, the last thing you need on your plate is a notice that you won’t be getting your workers’ compensation benefits after all.
The good news is you have the right to appeal the insurance company’s decision. Although you aren’t required to hire a lawyer to file an appeal, your chances of success are much higher if you work with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer.
If Your Workers’ Compensation Benefits Have Been Delayed
In some cases, workers’ compensation insurance companies are slow to process claims. This can be a frustrating and stressful experience when you’re out of work and recuperating from an on-the-job injury. The law in Florida imposes penalties on insurance companies that unreasonably delay benefits. Our lawyers expose these unfair insurance company tactics and aggressively pursue benefits for the workers we represent.
Get the Workers’ Compensation Benefits You Deserve
The workers’ compensation system was created to bridge the gap between a work-related injury and an employee’s return to work. In certain cases, workers’ compensation benefits permanently replace lost wages for workers whose injuries prevent them from ever rejoining the workforce. The lawyers at The Law Offices of Paul K. Schrier, PLLC pursue all available workers’ compensation benefits, which may include:
- Medical payments. After a work-related injury, it doesn’t take long for the medical bills to start rolling in. Medical payments are designed to cover the cost of doctors’ visits, prescription medication, physical therapy, and other expenses.
- Temporary disability. If your injury has sidelined you from your job, you may be entitled to money that covers your lost wages while you recover. These benefits are broken down into temporary partial disability and temporary total disability.
- Permanent disability. If your injury has left you permanently disabled, you may be eligible to receive either permanent partial disability or permanent total disability benefits. In certain circumstances, these benefits can continue for the rest of your life.
- Death benefits. Families who have lost a loved one in a work-related accident may be entitled to claim death benefits, which compensate family members for the loss of financial support previously provided by the deceased.
You have worked hard all your life. Let an experienced Florida workers’ compensation attorney work hard for you and your family. You are entitled to benefits. We will be by your side every step of the way to make sure you receive the compensation you need to maintain your lifestyle and cover the cost of your medical bills and other expenses.
