Who Will Pay My Medical Bills And Lost Wages?

Suffering injuries in a work-related accident is more than a threat to your career. It can have a direct impact on your ability to earn a living, support your family and pay your medical bills. If you were hurt at work or you are suffering from an occupational illness, you have rights.

The attorneys and staff at Thompson & Thomas, P.A., understand the difficulties that Florida workers can face when navigating the workers' compensation claims process. We know how overwhelming it can be when a work accident leaves you with medical bills and unexpected expenses, but our team will protect your right to an appropriate amount of support during your time of recovery.

The Benefits Available To You Through Workers' Compensation

Most Florida employers must carry workers' compensation insurance. The intent of this coverage is to provide free medical care to treat your injury, plus income to replace a portion of your lost wages. Workers' compensation pays about two-thirds of your regular pay.

The benefits available to you could go beyond just financial support. If you are unable to return to the same job you had before you were injured, workers' compensation could provide you with job retraining assistance. Permanently injured employees may also qualify for a lump-sum payment to compensate them for their long-term impairment.

You Do Not Have To Settle For Less Than Your Case Is Worth

You have limited time to report your work injury to your employer. Our experienced workers' compensation lawyers can help you with every step of the process, including filing the initial claim, addressing disputed or delayed claims or working through any necessary appeals. If there are options for money beyond what workers' compensation will pay, we can help with that as well.

Navigating the workers' compensation process and obtaining the benefits you deserve is challenging. You do not have to walk through it alone; we will employ all of our resources as we work to bring your case to a successful conclusion.
