If you were recently injured or harmed at work, you might understand how even a minor injury can impact your life and job. The truth is work-related injuries are fairly common and happen every day, especially in the fields of physical labor, such as construction.
According to some reports, Florida workers’ compensation attorneys are seeing a steady yearly increase in the value of benefits recovered for their clients. The Workers’ Compensation Research Institute (WCRI) published its finding to that effect in a recent study entitled CompScope Benchmarks for Florida, 12th Edition.
If you were injured on the job, you applied for Worker compensation benefits and your claim was denied, you have the right to contest the denial of benefits.
Once you have been notified that your claim has been denied, you can file a Petition for Benefits with the Florida Department of Administrative Hearings (DOAH). Before the DOAH assigns the case to a judge for a hearing, the parties must attend a mediation to discuss the Petition for Benefits.
