What Does it Take to Win a Lost Wage Claim?
To win a lost wage claim, you must show that your workplace injury has caused you to miss work and lose wages. You will need to provide documentation from your employer verifying your wages and the days you missed work.
Your doctor will also need to provide a written statement indicating that your injury has caused you to miss work and detailing the expected duration of your disability.
If you can prove that your workplace injury has caused you to lose wages, you may be eligible for lost wage benefits. These benefits are typically a percentage of your regular wages and are paid until you can return to work or reach maximum medical improvement.
Our Florida workers’ comp lawyers can help you gather the necessary documentation and evidence to support your claim. We will work tirelessly to help you obtain the maximum benefits you are entitled to under the law.

What If My Employer Denies My Workers’ Compensation Claim?
Workplace injuries can be debilitating and costly, which is why most employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This type of insurance provides benefits to employees who are injured on the job, covering medical expenses and a portion of lost wages.
However, employers sometimes deny a workers’ compensation claim, even if the injury is clearly work-related. If this happens, the employee has a few options.
- First, they can file an appeal. This formal process requires the submission of evidence and supporting documents.
- Alternatively, the employee could hire an attorney and file a lawsuit against the employer. This option is often preferable as it allows the employee to recover damages not available through the workers’ compensation system, such as pain and suffering.
If your employer has denied your workers’ compensation claim, our Sternberg | Forsythe, P.A. attorneys can help. We will review your case and help you understand your legal options. We will aggressively pursue the maximum compensation you are entitled to under the law. Talk to a lawyer now.
