Worker’s Compensation – Can I appeal a claim decision?
If your claim for worker’s compensation has been denied, you do have the right to appeal the decision.
Appeals for denied worker’s compensation claims need to go through a Florida Judge of Compensation Claims through the First District Court of Appeal. Once your petition has been filed, the entire process can take upwards of 240 days from the date of filing to resolution of your case.
It is important that you contact a worker’s compensation attorney to help you through this process and ensure that you maximize your chances of success.
