The law of Florida workers’ compensation is very complex, and adjusters will often try to take advantage of the fact that you do not know the law. It is important to consult with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to insure that you receive the benefits you are entitled to under the law, including your wage or salary replacement and the medical treatment you need.
This website offers additional information on the Florida Workers’ Compensation Act for those individuals who want to try to understand the law, including information about lost wages, medical benefits and permanent disability benefits.

What The Insurance company May Not be Telling You : The Florida Workers’ Compensation Act is complex. Find out what the insurance company may not be telling you.
In many instances, when you have been injured at work and are seeking workman’s comp / workers’ compensation benefits, the insurance company adjuster handling you case does not always have your best interests in mind. Their goals are to handle claims quickly and with as little cost as possible. For more information, please read about What Your Adjuster May Not Tell You .
It’s not a good idea to try to understand the Florida workers’ compensation laws yourself. Hire an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer who has helped hundreds of injured workers and has been doing so for over 20 years.
