West Palm Beach workers’ compensation attorney

Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt

What are my medical treatment options for workers’ compensation?

If you were hurt while on the job, contact our West Palm Beach workers’ compensation attorney to learn how we can protect your rights in the wake of a serious injury. Your employer and their insurance carrier may not tell you everything you need to know because they have their own best interests to protect. The Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt has helped thousands of injured workers in Florida get the benefits they deserve. Call us immediately if you suffered a serious injury while performing your job. If our West Palm Beach workers’ compensation attorney can negotiate a better deal for you, we will tell you. Contact us before agreeing to the benefits package offered to you.

Am I allowed to go to a doctor of my choice for treatment of my workplace injury?

In some states, you are required to get treatment by a physician that is approved by your employer or their workers’ compensation insurance carrier. In other states, you are permitted to seek treatment from your existing physician or one of your choice as long as they are within the accepted network of medical professionals approved of by your employer or their workers’ compensation insurance carrier.

How are medical expenses handled with workers’ compensation benefits?

In terms of a deductible, you will not have to pay one as long as the medical expense is reasonable and necessary. In fact, your workers’ compensation benefits should cover any reasonable and necessary medical treatment associated with your workplace injury. If you must travel to another city to get the care you need, you should also qualify for your mileage expenses and parking fees. In many cases, this works out well for the employee, but in cases where the injury is one of a catastrophic nature, you may be wise to research your options by talking with a seasoned workers’ compensation attorney in West Palm Beach.

Does my employer have the right to force me to undergo a medical evaluation?

By law, your employer or their workers’ compensation insurance carrier has the right to require you to submit to a medical evaluation by their designated independent medical examiner (IME). If you refuse to comply, you may be subject to forfeiture of your workers compensation benefits. Though the IME is supposed to be objective in their evaluation of your workplace injury, they are paid by the workers’ compensation insurance carrier and so they often have a built-in bias.

When you hire a West Palm Beach workers’ compensation attorney from our firm, if the IME’s diagnosis results in significantly less benefits or a denial of your claim, our recommended physician can examine your injury. If their diagnosis differs from the IME, we will include their testimony in our claim as a rebuttal. If we end up escalating your claim to a lawsuit, we can call on our physician as a witness in court.

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.
