    Workers Compensation

    If you feel that you did not receive benefits as due to you under the law, you can file a claim with the state. The following website explains your rights under Florida's workers' compensation law, including procedures on filing a claim: http://www.fldfs.com/wc/pdf/employeebrochure.pdf

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    the Dr. who i saw about my back was going to give meds for my back but wanted to run tests because he thought that there was something wrong with my heart. he said i should be put on light duty and shoudn't lift anything heavy. once i saw the dr. for my heart he wanted to see me a.s.a.p. that was three months ago. i have not seen a dr since then. when i mentioned this to my employer she says she is trying..... i have been talking to her every day.
    i have not seen any of the reports, the copy i requested sent to the adjuster was never sent and i was never notified of this (i just found out) as for the results the dr. i saw about my back said that i injured it and the one i saw about my heart said it was fine.

    What did the first doctor tell you? Have you seen your reports? That is where you need to start.
