Why Can’t Workers’ Compensation Pay Me on Time?

by FranksKoenig NeuweltOct 30, 20180 comments

Why Can’t Workers’ Compensation Pay Me on Time?

We receive calls on a regular basis from injured workers whose indemnity (lost wage) checks stop coming regularly or simply stop coming altogether.

This is one of the most maddening things that can happen once an injured worker has entered Florida’s workers’ compensation system.

Here you are, working, just getting by as it is, when suddenly you are hurt at work and suffer injuries that prevent you from making your normal salary or wages. You are now getting checks from workers’ compensation but they are less than what you would make if you were able to work. While money was tight before the accident, having to rely on the reduced work comp money makes paying bills that are stacking up and putting food on the table for the spouse, kid(s) and dog/cat/turtle even more stressful.

And then the checks, which were coming in every other week suddenly don’t turn up. You check the mail, ask the mailman, even ask neighbors if they received your check by mistake. No such luck.

So you call your adjuster and they tell you that the checks were on a payment schedule and it must have fallen off. They put you back on “schedule” and advise you the checks will come on time. And maybe they do for a few weeks or months, but then the checks stop coming in on time, or stop without even a whisper of warning and suddenly you are right back in the same spot as you were before.

The stress and anxiety of meeting your financial obligation is hard enough if you are well, but being injured makes it all the harder to make ends meet. If your workers’ compensation checks are not coming in regularly, or if they are not coming in at all, call one of the experienced and dedicated attorneys at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt today. We have more than 50 years experience helping injured workers receive the lost wages to which they are entitled and in making sure the checks come regularly and consistently.

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.
