Getting Information on Your Employer-Provided Insurance

By: Admin

Signing on the dotted line of your employer-provided insurance

Starting up at a new job can be an exciting and sometimes harrowing experience. There is the optimism of a fresh start with a new company, but also some natural fear of the unknown when taking on new tasks and responsibilities. Though there are many unknowns that may induce unease, one factor that should never be left to question is your employer-provided insurance. In fact, your employer must, by law, openly disclose this information to you.

Your employer is legally responsible for providing a poster, listing your company’s insurance information. You may have commonly seen these posters in the past, usually posted in a common area. Though these posters often go unnoticed and unread, they do contain some vital information, including phone numbers, websites and some specifics on the insurance company that you may not otherwise know. You may also visit the Florida Department of Financial Services’ website to ensure that your employer has workers’ compensation coverage and suitable employer-provided insurance plans.

So what happens if you are injured on-the-job, but your employer refuses to report your injury to the insurance company? You may report your injury directly to the State of Florida by calling the Employee Assistance Office at 1-800-342-1741. There is no excuse for not reporting an accident, especially if you have suffered an injury at work.

Testimonials

When someone does such a phenomenal a job as Al has done for us,it’s hard to find the right words to thank him and his office for all the work that was done in our case. We would not have gotten anywhere without his knowledge and help. Until we actually saw all of the “HOMEWORK” that Al did,we had no idea how much work that had been put into our case. 5 stars for Al and his team for the excellent work in delivering a fair and just settlement.

Attorneys you can trust. My daughter was in an automobile accident several months ago. She was really hurt and being only 19 really didn’t know how to take up for herself with regards to the other persons insurance company. They continued to call her and pressure her to accept their offer. Having known Glen Wieland for some time, I recommended that she contact his firm. What good advice that has turned out to be. They have watched out for her and made sure that she receives the medical attention that she needs. I feel so much better knowing that she is being properly represented.
