What is workers compensation?

Workers Compensation is a form of insurance that most employers in the State of Florida are required to carry.  It covers employees who have suffered a workplace injury or illness.  Work Comp is No-Fault insurance, which means that your are entitled to benefits even if you caused your own injury.

  • Slip and Fall

What should I do after I’ve been injured?

If you have been injured on the job, the first thing to do is report it to your employer as soon as possible. If the injury or illness is not reported within a specific time frame, you may not qualify for workers compensation benefits.  The report of the injury should include the date, time, and circumstances of the injury.  Once the injury has been reported, the injured worker should seek medical treatment.

What damages can I recover?

The employer may be responsible for helping you with lost wages due to an accident on the job, as well as pay for any medical bills associated with the injury.  In some instances, a worker may be entitled to a lump sum settlement.
