Our Workers Compensation Law Firm Represents You
If you’re unable to reach a settlement, your workers compensation claim proceeds to an administrative hearing or trial before a workers comp judge. During the discovery process (investigation), your attorney may take depositions of witnesses, request your medical records, perform legal research, write your “pleadings” (motions, petitions, and responses to the insurance company), and make sure that everything is submitted on time. At the hearing, your lawyer will present why you should get benefits to the judge, make opening and closing arguments, examine witnesses, and raise objections when the insurance company does something considered improper. If you’re not satisfied by the result of your hearing, your Orlando lawyer can help you appeal the decision.
Kevin Moore knows that the injured often have problems getting to an attorney’s office; that is why, wherever you live in Florida, he will come to you!

Is a Lawyer Worth the Cost?
At the Law Office of Kevin A. Moore, consultations with you about your workers compensation case are always free of charge. Fees for representation are set by Florida statute and vary, depending on your type of work-related claim. You’re likely to get a much higher settlement offer when a lawyer is involved. Kevin takes the time to clearly explain the complex and frustrating legal process to clients injured in the workplace and works aggressively toward getting them their fair and just compensation. Kevin understands the law, knows how to negotiate, and can use various tools to build your case.
How Long Does it Take To Receive Payment?
Within three weeks of an injury is the earliest an injured worker can expect to receive payments. This is only possible if the injury is immediately reported to the 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. It is important that the injured person keep a record (a dated copy and signed acknowledgment) of their injury notification to their employer.
Don’t Wait to Report an Injury
You need to report the accident as soon as possible if you’ve suffered from an injury at work in Orlando. 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. “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.
