Legal Answers
25 Questions Answered
Q. Good morning A dog attack me will I’m working and I broke my elbow I left the work for tow months
A: I'm not sure what you mean by deductible, but, I'm assuming it's for attorney's fees, costs, and, maybe, anything that is owed for your medical care. If that's the case, if $50,000 is the limit, then those things would be deducted from that limit, so you wouldn't be able to get the full $50,000 for yourself. For that information, you should listen to your attorney, who knows more about your case than any of us. However, since you were injured at work, you should have a workers' compensation case, which provides medical care and lost wages paid for and provided by the work comp insurance carrier. These would be two separate cases. I'd highly recommend that you consult with an attorney licensed to practice law in Florida and who regularly handles workers' compensation cases.
Q. Are you able to explain the following Florida Statutes? 443.041 and 443.1715.
A: To what is this in reference? It's difficult to attempt to answer a question without some context. Also, FS 440 is the workers' compensation statute, so this question may be under the wrong practice type.
Q. I am supposed to be in a sling that is not documented per workman's comp doctors but now my manager is telling me to
A: You should listen to what your work comp doctor says. If the doctor's recommendation to wear a sling is in a medical record, provide it to your employer. If your employer insists that you take the sling off to work, you're violating your doctor's orders. If you listen to your employer and get further hurt, work comp could deny your claim. Remember, your employer must abide by your work comp doctor's restrictions, and if it doesn't have work under those restrictions, you may be entitled to work comp checks, although they are paid at around 2/3 your full wage. I'd highly recommend that you consult with an attorney licensed to practice law in Florida and who regularly handles workers' compensation cases.
