Aggressive Workers Compensation Attorney West Palm Beach

Aggressive Workers Compensation Attorney West Palm BeachAfter sustaining a work injury, an aggressive workers compensation attorney in West Palm Beach at Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt understands it can be challenging to keep up with the daily responsibilities of life, especially when it comes to finances. An injured worker may have to stay at home to recover from the injury and need help paying for medical care costs associated with the accident. That is where workers’ compensation benefits can come into play, as this program can offer financial support to employees who satisfy the requirements. 

Here are questions an injured worker may ask a West Palm Beach, FL aggressive workers compensation attorney about how they can get the most out of filing for workers’ compensation benefits: 

Is it important to report the accident immediately?

The very first action an aggressive workers compensation attorney located in West Palm Beach, FL may suggest taking after a work accident is to report it to your supervisor. Each state requires that employees provide notice of injuries caused by the workplace within a certain time-frame after it occurs. However, to prevent doubt from being cast onto your claim it is in your best interest to report it the same day. If you don’t, your employer and their insurance company may question the severity of your condition if you didn’t report the accident and get medical care right away. 

Will it impact my workers’ comp claim if I see my own doctor?

Based on state law, you may or may not be permitted to see your own doctor, at least initially. After reporting the accident, your employer may necessitate that you visit a doctor they appointed to handle accidents related to workplace injuries first. Then, you may be allowed to see your preferred physician for care. 

To get the most out of your workers’ compensation coverage, you may want to request that you see your own personal doctor for treatment. The doctor picked by your employer may be biased to make decisions that benefit the company and not your health, by minimizing your conditions and symptoms so your employer has to pay less in medical costs. 

To find out more about the laws for your state regarding what doctor must treat your injury, you can talk with a Florida aggressive workers compensation attorney in West Palm Beach who is knowledgeable on workers’ compensation programs. 

Is there only one type of benefits that I am eligible for?

A FL aggressive workers compensation attorney at Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt can inform you about all the types of benefits available to them through workers’ comp programs. Every state will have its own laws regarding coverage amounts and eligibility, but in general the following benefits are usually available: 

  • Permanent Disability: benefits that compensate the injured worker who has long-term physical impairments because of the accident.
  • Temporary Disability: benefits that pay for losses such as lost wages while recovering from the injury. 
  • Mileage: benefits that pay back the injured worker for traveling to doctor’s appointments. 
  • Vocational Rehabilitation: benefits that provide assistance to the injured worker if they need retraining or help finding another job. 
  • Medical Care: benefits that pay for necessary and reasonable medical treatments pertaining to the injury.
