As an employee, you have the right to a safe and healthful workplace. If you have suffered an injury on the job, it is imperative that you are aware of the benefits you may be eligible for under workers' compensation coverage.
Generally, Florida law requires employers to carry workers' compensation insurance coverage. If you are injured on the job, your employer should give you a workers' compensation claim to complete and submit.
Sometimes legitimate workers' compensation claims are denied by aggressive compensation carriers. An insurer can claim you haven't been injured or that the injury you have suffered does not qualify for workers' compensation benefits. If this is the case, you may stand to lose critical benefits, such as medical coverage, financial help and job retraining.
If you feel your legitimate benefits have been denied and you live in the Northeast Florida area, including Jacksonville, Orange Park, St. Augustine, Fernandina Beach or in the areas around Duval, St. Johns, Nassau, and Clay counties, we can assist you through the appeals process.
