Complications can arise when you file for workers' compensation

You may be one of many Florida workers who are at risk for injury in the workplace. Such workers would include those in the construction industry, as well as those who work in the fishing, agriculture, aviation or logging industries. Then again, you could work behind a desk in an office and slip on a wet floor or suffer any number of injuries on the job. Filing a workers' compensation claim is common after a workplace accident, but it's also common for challenges to arise during the process.

As an injured Florida worker, you'd typically be eligible to recover medical expenses and lost wages. In certain circumstances, you may also qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. Sadly, many workplace accidents result in fatalities. In such cases, family members may be eligible to collect death and survivors' benefits.

In a perfect world, if you were recovering from an on-the-job injury, you would file a claim, it would be processed quickly, and you'd get all the benefits to which you're entitled. This could help you restore your health and make ends meet while you're recovering. In reality, the claims process is often highly stressful because employers or insurance agencies sometimes create obstacles that impede an injured worker's ability to collect benefits. If an insurance company denies your initial claim, it doesn't necessarily mean you should give up hope. Many workers have gotten benefits by appealing denials.

If you have an injury, illness or disability that resulted from a Florida workplace accident, you can reach out for legal support by requesting a meeting with Rosenthal Levy Simon & Sosa. This is the first logical step to take to seek guidance and support regarding workers' compensation laws and particularly important if your claim has been denied. Relying on experienced legal advocacy is the best choice, especially when you're having trouble navigating the claims process.
