Tips For Your Florida Workers’ Compensation Claim

Tips For Your Florida Workers’ Compensation Claim

Listed below are a few things to keep in mind when dealing with Florida’s workers’ compensation system or for when you are hurt at work or involved in a workplace accident or injury:

1. Ask questions of your doctor. Many times the workers’ compensation doctors run in and then run out of the examination room in less than 5 minutes. If you don’t ask questions they won’t stick around. Ask for clarification on issues such as diagnoses, treatment options and medication use. If you don’t understand and they won’t take the time to explain, call an experienced workers’ compensation attorney right away.

2. Follow your doctor’s instructions. No lifting an arm means no lifting with that arm. This will become vital later on in the case, especially if the workers’ compensation insurance company has you on video surveillance.

3. Trust your gut. If your instincts are telling you that something isn’t right then you are probably correct. If your employer tells you they will report an injury and don’t, or if the doctor tells you they will treat a body part and don’t, something is wrong. At that point it is time to call your attorney or hire one if you haven’t yet.

4. Don’t be afraid to ask for medical care. If your doctors are not listening to you, it’s time to call or hire an attorney.

5. Call an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. Don’t rely on the workers’ compensation adjuster to give you the care or get you the treatment you deserve.

My husband was hurt and never dealt with an attorney before. He looked up attorneys online & thru the grace of God got Lissa Dorsey as his attorney & she was truly amazing! She was very involved, always returned our phone calls & made the whole process as easy for us as she possibly could while my husband treated with Dr's and started his healing process. I would recommend her to any & everyone without a doubt.
