What You Need To Know About Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Most Florida employers are required to carry injury insurance for their workers. When injured workers submit a workers’ compensation application, they are filing an injury claim with their employer’s insurer, not suing their employer. Many workers are afraid to file a claim because they believe they will be fired or will suffer retaliation. If this is your concern, contact attorney Lee Viacava to learn how the law can protect you.
The workers’ compensation process is not easy to navigate because insurers do not make a profit by paying out claims. Making the process complicated allows insurers to hold on to their money. If you make a mistake that results in a claim denial, the insurer profits. If you do not file a claim because you don’t know what paperwork to submit, the insurer wins.
