Even if you are injured on the job, the insurance company can still deny your workers’ compensation claim. Sometimes they deny your claim for strategic reasons, like wanting to push you to settle, and sometimes they deny the claim as they may believe that they are not liable for the accident or injuries. It is important to know that the insurance company is not the final word.
Under Florida law, you have a right to have an Administrative Law Judge who is knowledgeable of the workers’ compensation system hear your case and determine if you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
However, you should contact an experienced worker’s compensation attorney to handle your case and to guide you through the complicated law. The attorneys at Talbott & Lampert, PA are experienced workers’ compensation attorneys and will provide you a free consultation to discuss your case.
