Workers’ Compensation Appeals
Trusted Personal Injury Lawyers in Fort Lauderdale
Workers’ Compensation exists to cover the medical costs for those
hurt while on the job. For those whose compensation claim is denied, an
appeal may be made to the First District of Appeal (DCA). For your best
chance at winning your appeal, you need experienced legal support from
our Fort Lauderdale workers’ compensation attorney.
Rosenberg & Rosenberg, P.A. has more than 160 years of combined experience
behind us which we put to use with each case we handle. In our vast experience,
we have been able to recover millions of dollars for clients who were
hurt on the job and our attentive and aggressive representation can make
the difference for your case.
How do appeals work?
There is a specific protocol to follow if your benefits were denied which
our firm is fully aware of and can walk you through.
The process includes:
- Providing written notice of your injury to your employer within 30 days
of the injury
- After a denial, file a petition with the Division of Administration hearings
- Within 40 days, the Judge of Compensation Claims will set up a conference
- Evidence is presented to show the extent of your injuries during a Pretrial Hearing
- Resolution may be reached through mediation in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
An appeal can go to the First District Court of Appeals if the judge makes
a decision after your pretrial hearing denying your claims. This is where
our Fort Lauderdale workers’ compensation lawyer can be critical
to your recovery of damages.
