Clients Rights According to Florida Workers Compensation Law
It is estimated that every year over 100,000 Floridians are injured on the job and apply for workers compensation benefits. Many injured workers are able to move smoothly through the Florida State Workers Compensation system, receiving timely medical care, lost wages, and return back to their pre-injury work. However, many others are not so fortunate. For many workers in Boca Raton, the employer may not want you back to work or cannot accommodate your medical restrictions. Your injury could be so severe that you know you will never be able to return back to work in the profession that you love.
Worker’s compensation is very difficult to understand and it may be time to talk to someone who knows the system and can tell you your rights. If you live in Boca Raton or the surrounding area, call now and speak with Kevin Moore directly. Worker’s compensation law is complicated and frequently subject to change or interpretation.
Don’t Wait to Report an Injury
If you’ve suffered from an injury at work in Boca Raton, you need to report the accident as soon as possible. “As soon as possible” is interpreted as occurring within 30 days of one of: the date of the injury, the date when the injury’s effects first become apparent, or the date when a medical expert first discovers the injury. Failing to meet this deadline could threaten your right to benefits. Worker’s comp coverage is intended to pay for most reasonable and necessary medical care related to your on-the-job injury. You may also be entitled to compensation for lost wages and/or, depending on the type of your injury, you may be entitled to retraining.
What if You Are Not Getting Proper Treatment?
If you are not satisfied with the physician providing treatment, it’s important to note that you cannot change physicians without approval. If you do, the insurance company is likely to refuse workers comp benefits payment. In such times, Florida law allows our Boca Raton attorney, representing the injured party, to file a petition for benefits to get authorization for treatment by a different physician or a physician specializing in the area of injury. Kevin Moore can handle this complicated petition process for you.
How Long Does it Take To Receive Payment?
The earliest an injured worker can expect to receive payments is within three weeks of the injury. This is only possible if the injury is immediately reported to the employer. It is important that the injured person keep a record (a dated copy and signed acknowledgment) of their injury notification to their employer. The insurance carrier is required to send payment within 14 days of being notified that a worker has been disabled for more than 7 days.
