At Schatt Hesser McGraw, we strongly believe in your right to compensation after suffering an accident on the job. For over a decade, our workers’ compensation attorneys have worked hard to protect the rights and financial security of injured employees through comprehensive case evaluation and an aggressive approach to claim resolution. We will not be intimidated by employers or insurance companies who may be trying to deny you benefits.
Both federal and state laws regarding workers’ compensation are complicated. That makes every situation unique and in need of individual attention. Our personalized approach to workers’ comp cases involves a thorough case review coupled with an honest assessment of your claim. We will investigate the circumstances and provide you with options and alternatives for resolving the situation. We seek to simplify the process of receiving workers’ compensation benefits so that you can focus on healing, return to full strength faster and get back to work sooner.
The workers’ compensation attorneys at Schatt Hesser McGraw have over 13 years of experience prosecuting and defending workers’ compensation cases. We’ve worked on both sides of the aisle, representing insurers and employers as well as injured employees. This background gives us a depth of knowledge and experience that is hard to find elsewhere. We have established good working relationships with other workers’ compensation attorneys and the major insurance providers in the state, which gives us an edge over the competition when it comes to getting cases resolved quickly and fairly.
Having handled over 2,000 cases and argued in over 25 final hearings during this time, we have seen it all. From employers who delay and stonewall to avoid filing a claim to insurers who seek loopholes that will get them off the hook for making a payout, we know how to work with, or around, uncooperative parties to help our clients receive the benefits to which they are entitled.
Our peer-respected workers’ compensation law firm in Ocala has provided speakers on the topic of workers’ compensation and Florida employment law at seminars and professional development events for legal professionals and non-lawyers around the state and written for several legal publications.
There is no workers’ compensation case that is too big or too small for our workers’ compensation law firm in Ocala, FL. For example, as Florida’s retirement population has swelled, we have seen an increase in the number of claimants who work in the healthcare field. Nurses, CNAs, home health aides and nursing home attendants are all under-represented when it comes to workers’ compensation protections, an oversight that we work hard to remedy.
Although we have seen a rise in cases involving healthcare workers, that is not the only industry we represent. We serve claimants from across the state in a wide range of industries and career fields including construction and manufacturing, landscaping and office workers. If you’ve been injured on the job, we can help, no matter what your career field may be.

At our workers’ compensation law firm in Florida, we take our jobs as advocates for our clients very seriously. We understand that when you’re injured and unable to work, you are nervous and worried about income replacement while regaining your health. It is all too easy to fall into the trap of doing whatever the insurance company tells you to do in the hopes of getting back to work or receiving benefit payments. But that strategy can backfire if you’re unfamiliar with the law and the workers’ comp claim process in Florida. That’s where we come in.
We will guide you through the workers’ compensation claim process and help you understand your options so you can make the best decision possible. Remember, the insurance company will have lawyers looking out for their best interests; you need to have someone on your side looking out for your best interests as well.
