Your Worker’s Compensation Case

Were you injured on the job? Do you understand your rights when filing a worker’s compensation claim? Filing a Worker’s Compensation claim is time-sensitive.  According to Florida Law, once 2 years have passed since your accident, your time to file a claim can only be extended by up to one year from the last time any payment of compensation or medical benefits was made by the workers’ compensation insurance carrier.

The Law Office of Dennis Dean Smejkal, P.A. was founded over 13 years ago and handles worker’s compensation cases in Orlando and Central Florida.

Through this experience, we have seen it all. I know how the worker’s compensation system works, how the law applies to your situation, and what action to take to protect your rights to get you the treatment and benefits you need.

Guiding You Through Your Claim

We represent clients in all types of worker’s comp benefits issues, including:

  • Filing a claim for benefits
  • Appealing denied worker’s compensation benefits claims
  • Helping first responders apply for benefits
  • Obtaining an independent medical exam (IME)
  • Obtaining an advance from a worker’s compensation carrier.
  • Obtaining an expert medical advisor (EMA) as necessary

We take pride in the fact that we are able to educate clients about how the law applies to their claim, their injuries, and what is covered. Working with a law firm that has over 34 years of experience and a clear understanding of the different issues that can arise in the claims process is vital because it’s your future on the line.

Your Medical Care & Treatment

I truly care about you and helping you get better. Workplace accidents can lead to serious injuries that need to be carefully evaluated by a medical team.
