Workers' Compensation Process in Florida

Step-by-Step Assistance from Experienced Workers' Comp Attorneys in Fort Lauderdale

If you or someone you love has experienced a work-related injury or illness, you may be able to recover medical benefits and lost wages by filing a workers' compensation claim. The workers' compensation process can be difficult, and at times when workers may be recovering from their injuries or struggling with the burdens they create, the process can quickly become overwhelming. At Rosenberg & Rosenberg, P.A. our Fort Lauderdale workers' compensation lawyers will help you through the process step-by-step.

Although every case is unique, there are general timelines and requirements all injured workers can expect when filing a workers' compensation claim in Florida.

The general workers' comp process is as follows:

  • Report Your Injury – Once you are injured at work, or become aware of a work-related illness, you have 30 days to report the injury or illness to your employer. You will then have two years to file a claim.
  • Seek Legal Representation – Speaking with a lawyer early in the process can ensure that you are prepared for what's ahead, and that you are able to build an effective claim.
  • Gather Evidence – When first reporting the accident and preparing a claim, you should work on securing evidence and information about the nature of your accident and injury. This includes information from witnesses and authorized medical professionals who treat your injury or illness.
  • Independent Medical Examination – You must submit to an independent medical examination to determine the nature of injury or illness. Your benefits will be based on the severity of your injury – such as whether it is temporary or permanent.
  • Claim Decision – If your claim is approved, you should receive your benefits within 21 days of reporting your injury. If it is denied, you may be able to file an appeal.

Our legal team will thoroughly explain each step of the process according to your personal situation. We will also ensure your claim is supported by clear medical evidence so that you have the best chances of obtaining the benefits you need. If you or your loved one has been denied workers' comp benefits, we may be able to help you file an appeal.
