Florida Workers’ Compensation Laws- Good, Bad or Unfair?

The answer will vary depending on who you ask. The insurance companies will of course say good. The injured workers and their attorneys will say both bad and unfair. How is it seen so differently? The answer is money.

For the insurance companies, control is king. They control the selection of the initial medical provider and they control the change in provider. This allows them the ability to select medical providers who will return you to work with little to no missed time and minimal medical expenses. This means more money kept in the insurance company’s bank account earning interest and little to no money spent on your medical care and lost wages. However, the experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at the law offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt have more than 50 years of combined experience helping injured workers navigate the workers’ compensation system and obtain medical care that makes a difference in their lives.
