Florida Workers Compensation pays injured workers for medical treatment and lost wages, unfortunately, in most circumstances, the insurance company picks your first Doctor for you. The law allows the insurance company to control your doctors, and rest assured that the doctors are VERY pliable to the insurance companies’ instruction. If an injured worker waits too long to get help, often times the insurance company has already tricked an injured worker into giving up valuable rights. In addition to picking your doctor during your Workers Compensation case, the insurance company will do everything they can to ensure that they pay out the minimum dollar amount for your injuries and lost wages. In order to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation related to your case, be sure to seek the counsel of an experienced Orlando Workers Compensation Attorney, such as Charles H. Leo. Protect yourself, call our office to see if we can help with your Orlando workers’ compensation case.
BEWARE OF NURSE CASE MANAGERS! Even though the ethical code for nurses requires them to watch out for the patient’s best interest, when the WC insurance company is paying their bill, they almost ALL put the insurance company’s profits above the injured workers’ best interest. An injured worker can refuse to allow the Nurse Case Manager to attend their one-on-one time with doctors, and we strongly encourage injured workers to protect themselves from nurse caseworkers who push themselves into your treatment room.
