benefits for your lifetime. This is one of the reasons why catastrophic

compensation attorney – there is simply too much at stake to risk
having it handled correctly from the beginning. The cost of an insurance
company paying lifetime worker’s comp benefits is something they
typically want to avoid. As your worker’s compensation law firm,
LeavenLaw will prepare your case so that you receive every possible benefit
you are entitled to under the Florida worker’s compensation law.
LeavenLaw and its attorneys have over four decades of collective experience
and success working with serious & catastrophic workman’s comp
injury cases! Please review our recent case outcomes on catastrophic injuries.
Unlike some work place injuries, a catastrophic workplace injury frequently
occurs abruptly and without prior notice. Injuries are typically considered
catastrophic due to the enormous impact they have on the lives of those
who experience them, as well as the lives of the hurt worker’s family.
The types of catastrophic Workers Compensation injuries typically include:
- Head injury
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Severe burns
- Multiple bone fractures
- Neurological disorders
Managing catastrophic worker’s comp is very complex and requires
the expertise of a consortium of health care professionals including primary
and other physicians, physician’s assistants, nurses, therapists,
and, frequently mental health counselors. Frequently, a worker’s
comp carrier will deny or delay the necessary and appropriate medical
treatment the hurt worker or his family desperately needs to ensure the
best possible medical outcome. In many instances, the worker’s comp
carrier will send a representative to talk to the hurt employee or family
members at the hospital to investigate the workplace-related accident.
The representatives will ask for information and try to get the hurt worker
or family member to sign documents or take statements that the insurance
company to help them having to pay full benefits under the worker’s
compensation insurance policy. Therefore, as a general rule, it is wise
NOT to talk to the insurance company without first talking to and hiring
an experienced Florida worker’s comp lawyer. The insurance company
will do everything they can to get as much information
before you hire a worker’s comp lawyer to start to build a case against
you. Therefore it is important that you seek legal advice immediately
regarding your potential worker’s compensation claim to make sure
you do not give up any legal rights. Catastrophic workers’ comp
cases involve care that will last for a long-time; needs that candidly
far exceed those of individuals with less severe workplace related injuries.
Not unexpectedly, given profit as a driving factor, most worker’s
comp insurance companies will more times than not provide even minimal
appropriate care for such catastrophic injury cases.
