Workers' Compensation Appeals

Workers’ Compensation Appeals in Fort Lauderdale

We Can Help If Your Workers’ Compensation Claim Was Denied

Workers’ compensation is a legally mandated program that covers medical costs for employees hurt while on the job. Like all types of insurance, however, you may face pushback on your claim—even an unfair denial.

The good news is, if your workers’ compensation claim is denied, you do have options. You may appeal the decision to the First District of Court Appeal (First DCA). Our lawyers can help you prepare for this important appeal, so you feel confident in your chances.

How to Appeal a Workers' Comp Claim in Florida

If your workers’ compensation benefits were denied, there is a specific process you must follow if you wish to pursue the case. Our attorneys know how to start a workers’ comp appeal and are happy to explain and walk you through each step.

Appealing your workers’ comp claim involves:

  • Filing a petition with the Division of Administration hearings
  • Receiving a conference date from the Judge of Compensation Claims
  • Attending the pretrial hearing to present evidence of your injuries
  • Participating in mediation, also known as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), to attempt to come to an agreement with your employer

If, after the pretrial hearing, the judge denies your claims, you can advance your case to the First DCA. Our lawyers can prepare your case and represent you in front of the court.
