Was Your Workers’ Comp Claim Denied?
Workers’ compensation claims can be denied for many reasons. Sometimes the reasons are legitimate — such as failing to submit the proper forms in time, or failing to have medical evidence of your injury. However, sometimes your employer or the insurance company will make up excuses for denying your claim. They may wrongly accuse you of fraud, or say that the injury was unrelated to your job.
If your claim was denied, turn to Smith, Feddeler & Smith, P.A., for skilled advice and representation. Four of our attorneys are board-certified in workers’ compensation by The Florida Bar. We have in-depth insight in this area of law.
Don’t Give Up — You Still Have Options
Although your claim was denied, you don’t have to give up. We can assist you with filing a petition with the Division of Administrative Hearings. This hearing is a chance to present additional evidence showing why you deserve benefits.
If the judge denies your claim again, we can file an appeal with the 1st District Court of Appeals. Depending on the facts of your case, we may be able to argue that the judge misapplied the law.
Smith, Feddeler & Smith, P.A., has handled more than 10,000 injury claims and attended more than 1,000 hearings over the years. Our attorneys have also represented clients at hundreds of appeals. Let us put our experience to work on your behalf.
