Was Your Workers’ Compensation Claim Denied?

By Law Offices of Smith & Stallworth  Jun. 12, 2012 1:09p

If you live or work in the Tampa Bay area and feel you had a valid workers' compensation claim but were denied any benefits then you should talk to a Tampa workers' comp lawyer today. Florida employment law requires that most employers have workers' compensation coverage for their employees in the event that a work place accident occurs. Any employer with four or more employees must carry this coverage and its purpose is to provide benefits to an employee that is injured or becomes ill due to working conditions. This includes machinery accidents, slip and falls, repetitive motion injuries, toxic chemical exposure, burns, on the job vehicle accidents, any assaults or attacks that occur while a worker is on the job, etc. Workers' comp benefits are expressly for helping employees that have been the victim of a workplace accident such as those described above so a denial of benefits may be cause to get the help of a skilled attorney in order to appeal or resolve any dispute surrounding the disbursement of benefits.

Workers' Comp Denial Appeals

When a denial or dispute arises over a workers' compensation claim then it is vital that you have skilled legal representation for the appeals process. A claim may be denied if the decision makers on the case feel there is insufficient evidence to support the disbursement of benefits, or there may have been a mistake or miscommunication may have occurred resulting in a denial. By working with a workers' comp appeal lawyer your Tampa case may be resolved more quickly than you may have thought possible. Make sure everything possible is done to get a positive result in your case!
