Get Experienced Legal Help from Our Firm
If you have been involved in a workplace accident, your injuries should be covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance—regardless of who is to blame. However, employers and insurance companies often deny claims—even if they are legitimate—in order to save money and protect their bottom line. To protect your rights and best interests throughout the claims process, you need an experienced lawyer on your side.
At Herbert Chestnut & Associates, we have helped countless clients obtain workers’ compensation benefits. With more than 37 years of legal experience, our Jacksonville workers’ compensation attorney has won the Workers’ Comp Attorney of the Year award three times. He understands what it takes to maximize our clients’ benefits and help them make the best possible recovery from injury.
Florida Workers’ Compensation Laws
The state requires most employers to carry workers’ comp insurance for their employees. Benefits essentially act as wage replacement, while the amount you receive depends on how much the injury affects your ability to perform your job duties.
Workers’ compensation benefits include, but not limited to, the following:
- Doctor and hospital bills
- Prescribed medication
- Physical therapy costs
- Medical equipment
- Lost wages
- Vocational training
- Disability payments
- Death benefits
The amount of benefits you receive depends on whether your injury caused no disability, a partial disability, or permanent disability. If your work injury was caused by a third party other than your employer, you may file a personal injury claim against the negligent party.
