Worker’s compensation sounds like an easy way to live, but there are long term issues you need to keep in mind too. Miami residents should be aware that while the initial acceptance of a claim is a relief, it’s not the end of their worker’s comp journey.
The Future of Worker’s Compensation
What you might not realize is that worker’s compensation is only given for a certain time period, unless a doctor says otherwise. To make sure you still qualify, go to your doctor’s appointments and follow your treatment plans as directed.
If you have not improved your condition in the expected time period, ask your physician(s) for a new evaluation and then discuss whether you might need to be on partial or total disability for the duration of your life.
