How do I get the medical care I need in a worker's compensation case in Florida?

Sponsored Answer
Answer

In Florida, all workers' compensation cases begin by asking your employer for medical care for an accident-related injury. If a physician appointment is set up, you need to attend that appointment. If you believe you need a specialist, you need to ask the initial physician to make that recommendation. If you don't get the initial care OR you don't get the specialist care you believe you need, then you need to consult with an attorney to determine the best course of action for your case. Act quickly and don't delay in seeking appropriate medical care. Make sure to give any physicians or hospitals you consult with an accurate history of the work accident and how it caused the injuries.
