Getting the Best Representation from a Florida Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
The Florida Senate has once again put action on a workers’ compensation bill on hold for further discussion. The bill currently contains provisions that would cap the attorney fees for plaintiffs in workers’ compensation cases at $150 per hour and $1,500 overall. Depending on the final form of the bill and whether it is passed by both the Senate and the House, employees may benefit from the professional services of a Florida workers’ compensation lawyer if they have been injured on the job.
Two Versions of the Bill in Play
The Florida House Insurance and Banking Subcommittee has already signed off on a bill related to workers’ compensation. HB 1399 does not contain a cap on attorney fees. Instead, it limits the charges associated with outpatient surgery and would tie workers’ compensation to the rates currently charged by Medicare. The final form of the bill after it has gone through both sides of the legislature is not yet clear, but it is expected to contain added provisions that will benefit insurers and employers while limiting the ability of workers to obtain fair compensation. Retaining the services of a Florida workers’ compensation lawyer can even the playing field now and after the Senate or House bill is enacted into law.
