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.
Contact an experienced Florida workers' compensation attorney at the Francis Law Group today at (407) 363-9939. We will help you receive the benefits in which you are entitled.

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.
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.
When there is a death on the job, death benefits are available under Florida Workers' Compensation Law. Death benefits tend to be complicated and it would be wise to contact our law firm for legal advice.
