Can I collect workers’ compensation for an injury?
Sometimes, employers are amiable and cooperative when dealing with workers' compensation claims. In other cases, you may have to pursue your claim more aggressively in order to adequately cover your medical expenses following an injury. Regardless of your situation, it helps to have a qualified lawyer on your side who is experienced and well-versed in the steps required for filing a claim and pursuing justice.
Examples of workplace accidents that entitle employees to file for workers' compensation include:
Under Florida law, an employer must carry workers’ compensation insurance for their employees if they employ more than four people or are a construction-related business. If you find yourself in this situation, then you have the right to collect benefits from your employer.
Florida's "No-Fault" Workers' Compensation Policy
If you are reluctant to file a workers' compensation claim because you don't want to accuse your employer of negligence, rest assured. Florida is a "no fault" state, meaning you do not have to prove that negligence on the part of your employer directly or indirectly caused your injury.
Workers' Compensation claims exist to make sure that you receive adequate medical care and coverage of expenses after your injury.
