Florida Workers Compensation Lawyer: What to Do When Compensation Won’t Settle

Florida Workers Compensation Lawyer

Florida Workers Compensation Lawyer

Sometimes your work comp carrier won’t offer enough money to settle. What do you do? As Florida workers’ compensation attorneys we say, “Good, let’s walk.”

Why would you want to settle your case for less than full value? When our work injury lawyers pursue a settlement, we don’t look to take the first offer. We aren’t a mill that tries to settle quickly and leave you high and dry if it looks like a fight is brewing.

We are aggressive workers’ compensation lawyers and we don’t run from the insurance companies. If they don’t want to pay what your case is worth, there is usually a reason. It is our job to determine what that reason is and how to make it work to your advantage.

They don’t want to pay? Fine. They want to send you to a doctor because they don’t believe you? Great!

We have been doing this longer than many of the Florida workers’ compensation adjusters and can quickly pick up on the knee jerk reaction denials and the weak defenses. And we know how to beat them in court.

Does it take time? Yes. Does it require patience on your part? Of course it does. But Rome wasn’t built in a day. Let us help you fight the insurance company on your behalf.

Sometimes the medical records and doctor’s reports don’t support what we know to be true. You may need surgery. Or you may have already had surgery and need another. – But has the doctor recommended the medical care in writing? Or has the physician simply verbally advised you this care is an option?

We make sure to get the details in writing so the workers’ compensation carriers cannot ignore their future exposure. – If we need more time to get what we need, then we are going to get up from the negotiation table and walk away.

We are committed to making sure you get every last penny from the insurance company. – But remember, settlement is voluntary in Florida’s workers’ compensation system. You can’t force them to pay a penny more than they want to and they can’t force you to take a nickel less than what you want.

So how do we do it? We make them see the medical and lost wage exposure they don’t want to see. The work comp insurance companies will never volunteer to add those big ticket expenses that will cost them money. That’s our job. We make sure they know that your case will cost more than they thought and show them exactly why.

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.
