South Florida Workers’ Compensation Law Firm
Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in Fort Lauderdale
In 1990, 1993, and again in 2003, the Florida Legislature enacted drastic changes to the Florida Workers’ Compensation Act. Rosen & Ohr, P.A. has been there all the way, fighting for injured workers through all of the changes. Our Florida workers’ compensation firm has earned a reputation for aggressive and thorough representation. We devote ourselves to our client’s cases and fight zealously for their best interests.
If you have been injured on the job, Florida law has very specific guidelines about how and where you can obtain treatment. Employers are often quick to question their responsibility for your injuries, and understanding how to protect your health and your rights can be confusing.
For example, you have 30 days to report a work accident in Florida – but sometimes you don’t realize right away that your job caused an injury. Exposure to chemicals or other hazardous working conditions may result in illness months or years down the road, and a comprehensive investigation of your medical records may be required to establish responsibility. Also, when you do seek treatment for a work-related injury, your employer can dictate which medical provider you can visit.
If you do receive care from a Workers’ Compensation doctor, make sure your employer has completed the First Report of Injury form, and keep notes about the dates, times and details of your doctor appointments. Compensation for missed wages is based upon the number of days you are unable to work – and you still may not be eligible for full payment of your lost income. If the doctor advises you that your injuries are permanent, your employer may be obligated to provide job retraining or an alternate position – but legal representation can be necessary to ensure your employer actually provides you with viable work.
Serious medical conditions caused by work-related injuries demand serious treatment. It’s important that you follow Florida Workers’ Compensation procedures, but when those aren’t enough to obtain the help you need, an experienced FL work accident law firm can be a valuable resource.
