Helping Injured Employees Secure Workers’ Compensation
At Matheson and Horowitz, our main focus is on helping injured workers secure the compensation they need after being hurt on the job. If an injury has forced you to miss work, we understand that paying your bills and providing for your loved ones can be extremely stressful. We are here to guide you through the process and do everything possible under Florida’s workers’ compensation laws to secure the full range of benefits to which you are entitled.
How Workers’ Compensation Works
The Florida Workers’ Compensation Act was designed to be a “no-fault” system that replaces lost wages and medical benefits to employees who are hurt on the job. This means that employers who pay into workers’ compensation insurance are generally immune from lawsuits if an employee is injured at work – even if it is the employer’s fault.
Unfortunately, the workers’ comp process rarely works the way it was designed. Insurance companies frequently delay, deny or undervalue claims, including legitimate ones. The attorneys at Matheson and Horowitz aggressively fight for injured workers, seeing that they recover full compensation for workplace injuries, repetitive trauma and occupational diseases under Florida workers’ compensation law.
Fighting For Maximum Compensation For Injured Workers
While the “no-fault” system may sound fair, it doesn’t erase the risk of disputes between the employer, the injured worker and the workers’ compensation insurer. Disagreements often lead to legal battles regarding what care should be covered, how an injury happened, how much medical care the insurance provider should pay for and many other issues. Some insurance companies will even deny legitimate claims.
We are here to fight for workers facing these situations. There are times when this will be accomplished by going to trial and taking a very tough stand. There will be other times when negotiations or working out an agreement may be in their best interest. The one thing that we always ensure is that we are working with our clients – they are aware of every step of the process and are involved in reaching the outcome that is preferable for them.
