Workers’ Compensation Attorney Palm Beach FL
Florida law requires almost all businesses to provide some form of workers’ compensation to their employees in the event that they become ill or are injured on the job. There are limits on how long benefits last, but in every valid case, the injured workers should expect to receive them in full and without hassle. Unfortunately, this is not always how things go. In fact, many workers’ compensation claims are initially denied. This could be due to an error in paperwork, allegation of a false claim, or failure to meet the deadline. Denial of a claim can be devastating and can add insult to injury. Luckily, there are other options.
