When an injured worker wants to settle their claim we take the time to explain in detail what benefits are available under the law, how the law affects the value of the case, what we think their case may be worth and what the workers’ compensation insurance company may offer. After providing our opinions, we sometimes hear that the client has sought, or been given, advice from friends, family or non-workers’ compensation attorneys who feel their case is worth much more than what we discussed and they should get additional benefits we didn’t mention.
While it is great that others are trying to help, Florida’s workers’ compensation law is so totally different from other fields of law, including other state’s workers’ compensation laws, that there really is no comparison. Consequently, when it comes time to settle your workers’ compensation claim, please don’t listen to the neighbor who was hit by a driver on his way home from the movies or the attorney who tells you to fight the low ball offer and take it all the way to the judge.
