Hire Lawyers Who Can Negotiate Your Workers’ Comp Claim
Workers’ compensation was established to help injured workers pay medical bills and living expenses following an accident on-the-job. It is mandated by law for most employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance. However, some employers resent having to carry this type of insurance and blame the employee for their own accident. Workers’ compensation is designed to cover your injuries, regardless of who is at fault.
When the medical bills start mounting up, the last thing you need is a reluctant employer who wants to blame you for your accident and an insurance company that is creating excuses not to pay your compensation. The last thing you need is an employer who failed to carry insurance at all or who fires you for exercising your right to file a claim.
When a Florida employer does not play by the rules, that is where the Jacksonville work injury lawyers at Farah & Farah steps in. We meet with you and gather the facts. If you qualify for workers’ compensation and are being denied, we can help level the playing field. We know the tricks the insurance giants will employ to avoid paying your claim. The insurance adjuster’s role is to offer the lowest settlement value. It becomes our job to be your best ally in this contentious standoff and negotiate with the employer or workers’ compensation insurance giant a settlement that will bring you what you are entitled to by law.
Florida workers’ compensation law does not allow you to sue your employer but if there is a third party that contributed to your injury, you retain the right to file a claim against that party. For example, if a defective drill led to your construction site injury, you could have a claim.
If you worked at a job site that presented hazards, your employer knew about it and had received complaints previously, you may be eligible to file a claim.
Remember, workers’ compensation is your right if you are legitimately injured on-the-job. If you are fired for filing a Florida workers’ compensation claim or if your employer failed to carry insurance coverage for his employees, we will aggressively fight for your rights in court.
