    Once you have changed doctors, the insurance company (wc) should follow the treatment plan and restrictions of the new physician. If they don't, you may want to consult with an attorney who specializes in workers' compensation.

    Once you apply for unemployment benefits, you will get a determination as to your eligibility and if your employer has responded to the Agency for Workforce innovation, you will know your employer's position. If you are denied, you have a limited time period to file an appeal. The most important part of filing that appeal is being timely and asking for a hearing. Few lawyers in the state handle these types of claims, but you will be able to find one. There are also companies that will do...

    I do practice in the area of Florida unemployment law. The question requires information you may or may not have in your possession. There is a document called a notice of determination. This document will show you the 4 quarters that are being used to determine your eligibility. If you exhaust your entltlement (which is also shown on the form), you have to work and earn a certain amount of money before you will become eligible for more benefits or become eligible again, depending on how...

    Florida is an at will employment state. The employer may set the benefits that the employees are entitled to under each classification of employment status, but in order to avoid any potential problems or claims that someone is being treated differently you would be well served to maintain uniformity for each classification. From your question, it does not sound like there was a written contract of employment, but if there is one, that could change things. The above is for informational...

    Your rights in workers' compensation depend upon the date that you were injured and the law in existence at that time. Since you did not indicate the specific nature of your injuries it is difficult to answer your question completely; however, you would certainly benefit from meeting with an attorney who specializes in workers' compensation to go over your medical care to date and identify what other options may be available to you. If you are no longer able to perform the job you did...

  6. Should I apply for disability, get denied, then hire an attorney or hire an attorney before I apply the first time?

    See an attorney. Many attorneys will give you a free consultation and you can at least get some information that will help you make a decision as to whether you want or need an attorney. You may want to consult with more than one as everyone has his/her own style and you will want someone that you feel comfortable speaking to about your medical conditions because you need to be completely forthcoming when speaking to your attorney.

    When you say disability, it sounds as though you are referring to Social Security Disability. First, you need to have sufficient quarters to qualify. This means that you have worked and "paid in" for a sufficient time period to be eligible. About 2 months before your birthday each year, you should receive a report from the Social Security Administration which has the deatils of your eligibility, your benefit amount, etc. Next, you need to apply and have medical documentation that supports...

    I practice workers' compensation in Florida. Florida is one of the few remaining states that is controlled by NCCI (which is the company responsible for suggesting rates to the office of insurance regulation). Florida does not have a competitive rate making system, which for you means that you'll likely get the same rate no matter what company you choose to go with. Each insurance company handles their claims differently, so if you are looking for a company that will take care of your...

    You can hire an attorney. From your question, I assume your injuies occurred at work. You will want to make sure the attorney you hire specializes in workers compensation.

    The first thing you need to do is contact your attorney and let him/her know what you did at the deposition and make sure you are 100% honest, straightforward and complete. As Mr. Stein indicated, lying in a WC case can have a devasting result on your claim. You need to let your attorney know as soon as possible and see what can be done. Good. Luck!
