Workers’ Compensation Tips

Workers Compensation Attorney

Workers’ compensation can be a tricky subject when you are not experienced in litigation. At Wieland, Hilado & DeLattre, one of our greatest assets is our deep understanding for workers’ compensation law. Though you should absolutely consult a workers’ compensation attorney if you have any questions about your case, we can give you some brief tips that may help clear up potential fears and confusion.

Social Security number: You do not have to give your Social Security number to anyone in a workers’ compensation case, including insurance companies, doctors or the hospital. We recommend not sharing your Social Security number whenever possible, as identity theft is an epidemic, especially in Central Florida.

Your rights: Though every case is different, and you should absolutely visit a workers’ compensation attorney, you are generally entitled to have your medical bills and lost wages paid. Note that this is usually only applicable if you are out of work for more than one week.

Settlement: Indeed, most insurance companies allow you to settle your workers’ compensation case. However, again, we highly recommend seeking the guidance of a trusted workers’ compensation attorney.

In the unfortunate case that you or a loved one are injured on the job, you may encounter some unique issues to consider in litigation. Please do not hesitate to contact us to speak with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney at 407-841-7699.

The stressful time my family and I were going through was made so much easier with Al Hilado guiding me through the process, and I would definitely recommend your law firm to any of my co-workers, friends and family. I actually did that with several of my coworkers , who also were injured on and off the job.

Al Hilado was successful in winning my very difficult case. He was very approachable the entire length of the case. It took over 2 years. He and his staff kept me up to date and whenever I had a question he was very easy to reach by phone or email. I am very grateful to him as he has helped my family tremendously. I will absolutely contact him again if I ever need help in the future.
