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.
What’s an Impairment Rating?
We’ll work hard to get you the best workers’ compensation impairment rating settlement. Your Florida impairment rating is a number that the doctor assigns to your injury. An impairment rating is meant to be the percentage of injury that you have to that part of your body. If a medical impairment rating is less than 50 percent, the worker is considered to have a partial disability, which may mean they are eligible to return to work in some capacity. If a worker has a permanent, total disability, they will usually get disability payments for a certain amount of time through workers’ compensation insurance.

What if You Are Not Getting Proper Treatment?
Florida law allows our Hollywood 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. 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. Kevin Moore can handle this complicated petition process for you.

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 Hollywood, 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 Hollywood 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 Hollywood, 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.
