Reduced FL Workers’ Compensation Insurance Premiums Only Help Businesses

A decrease in the workers’ compensation insurance rate is expected to benefit businesses only!  Unfortunately, the complexities of the Florida Workers’ Compensation System have not been changed, which is why those filing a job related accident claim should seek legal assistance from a Coral Springs Workers’ Compensation lawyer as soon as possible. The Law Offices of Evan M. Ostfeld handles such matters statewide and therefore can provide representation in helping the injured throughout this difficult process.

The 13.8% premium reduction in Florida’s workers’ compensation insurance rates are actually greater than originally requested by the National Council on Compensation Insurance. Recently approved by the insurance commissioner, it is expected to save Florida companies more than $450 million in workers’ compensation insurance costs. Unfortunately, this reduction only benefits businesses and not their workers. Honestly, some of it should have gone back in to the workers’ compensation system in order to provide better benefits for the injured employees.

Most Florida workers are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits if they are injured in the course and scope of their employment. Such mishaps may include foot, knee, back, shoulder, neck and head trauma. Other health conditions can result from repetitive physical activities taking place over a long period of time. Whenever an injury prevents someone earning a living, the workers’ compensation program is available to replace a portion of that person’s lost wages and/or to cover medically necessary treatment at no cost to the employee.

Although workers’ compensation benefits are available, they should not be taken for granted. Oftentimes, it will often require intervention by a Coral Springs Workers’ Compensation attorney, like Evan M. Ostfeld, Esquire to ensure that injured or ailing workers receive the medical treatment and the financial compensation that they need deserve. This is why those individuals seeking workers’ compensation benefits should contact Evan and his legal team at the Law Offices of Evan M. Ostfeld at (866) I SUE YOU, (866) 478-3968, (954) 227-7529, and/or evan@attorney4life for a no obligation case evaluation.
