Orlando Workers' Compensation Attorney on Your Side
Some occupations carry more risks than others. If you have been hurt on the job in Florida, you may be entitled to compensation. Florida Workers' Compensation Law allows injured construction workers, first responders and other employees to collect benefits, including medical treatment and coverage for lost wages. If you have a permanent work injury, you may also qualify for long-term disability.
Even when there is a legitimate work injury or work-related illness, workers' compensation claims are sometimes challenged and later denied. The Francis Law Group is experienced in dealing with workers' compensation claims that involve serious injuries and can help you.
Not every workers' compensation case requires the expertise of a workers' compensation lawyer. At the Francis Law Group, we will tell you if that is the case. If you come up against challenges, such as improper medical treatment, late or no benefit checks or lack of communication from the insurance company, then call us. A workers' compensation lawyer from our office will be able to assist you with the entire process.
The Francis Law Group regularly represents work injury cases involving the following:
- Injured first responder, such as an injured firefighter, emergency medical technician (EMT), paramedic or police officer

When you hire the Francis Law Group, you are represented by the law firm who wrote the book on workers' compensation in Florida.

If you are injured at work, you are legally entitled to file a workers' compensation claim and will not lose your job. You need to contact an experienced workers' compensation lawyer at the Francis Law Group if your employer is giving you the impression that your job is in jeopardy for pursing workers' compensation benefits.
Understanding Florida Workers' Compensation Benefits
In Florida, the length of time in which workers' compensation benefits are available depends on your specific case. For example, if you collect weekly workers' comp benefits, then your claim will close two years from the last date you received compensation. If you do not need to take any time away from work, your claim will close within in a year of your last medical treatment paid by the insurance company.
