If you’ve been injured at work in Fort Myers or Naples you are likely entitled to Workers Compensation benefits. Those benefits take two forms – medical benefits and indemnity benefits. The workers compensation attorneys at Viacava & Cantor will ensure you are being treated fairly by the workers compensation insurance company and that you are receiving your proper benefits. Further, when you would prefer to give up your workers compensation insurance benefits in exchange for a monetary settlement with the insurance company we will negotiate aggressively against the insurance company on your behalf in order to get you as much money as possible.
What are my workers compensation medical benefits? When you are injured at work the workers compensation insurance company is legally obligated to pay 100% of your doctor bills until a doctor has fully restored you to health or has gotten you as close to your pre-accident health as they are medically able to.
What are my workers compensation indemnity benefits? Indemnity benefits are lost wages – while you recover from your injury if your doctor places you off duty or places you on limited duty and the employer is not able to offer you work within those restrictions, the workers compensation insurance company must send you checks during that period of time representative of a percentage of your average weekly wage prior to the work place accident.
