Workers' Comp in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Financial Compensation for Injured Workers

Weinstein & Scharf, P.A. address all workers' compensation situations from filing your complaint, to seeking to favorably resolve a denied claim, through to seeing that your payments are made on time and in full. Once your claim has been approved, there may be many questions you may have regarding the compensation you are owed. Using a knowledgeable Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer from our firm not only increases the likelihood of getting your claim approved and payments started, but any questions that you have along the way can be clearly and factually answered.

As part of your workers' compensation benefits, medical expenses you incur related to your injury will be paid. These payments are inclusive of hospital stays, medical treatment, prescriptions and even your mileage to get back and forth to the doctor. In most cases, you are additionally entitled to 66 2/3 of your average weekly wage, not to exceed the state limit. Compensation for permanent total disability or loss of a limb or eyesight is figured at a different rate.

Obtaining Workers' Comp Payments

Normally, you will not be paid for the first 7 days of your disability. If your disability lasts longer than 21 days, your insurance company may pay you for the first 7 days. Your first check should be received within 21 days after reporting the injury to your employer. If this does not occur, we work to find out why the payment was not received and help resolve the situation for you. You do not have to pay income tax on the money you receive for workers' compensation.

If a loved one was killed on the job, workers' compensation includes death benefits as well. Up to $7500 in funeral expenses can be covered by workers' compensation and up to $150,000 in death benefits may also be given to eligible spouses and children. There are many facts to know so that you can manage this difficult time as best as possible. We take pride in being able to answer your questions while diligently working to obtain the payments you need.
