Workers' Compensation Attorney Serving Florida

Accidents that occur in the workplace can be a significant legal headache. Fortunately, the law provides legal accident coverage for victims by ensuring they receive compensation for any injuries and losses that have been caused by the negligence of others. It also offers income and medical benefits to those who have been injured in the workplace, regardless of who was at fault. This law is known as workers’ compensation.

General Questions

01

What is workers compensation?

Workers compensation is a state-regulated system that provides medical and lost wage benefits designed to help you if you are injured on the job or develop a work-related illness. There are no pain and suffering benefits under the Florida Workers’ Compensation Statute.

02

What benefits do I receive from workers compensation?

If it is determined that your work-related injury is compensable under Florida workers’ compensation laws, you are entitled to receive medical and wage loss benefits. You could receive a portion of your lost earnings for the time you miss from work because of your work-related injury or illness. Also, workers’ compensation pays the medical bills associated with treatment for your injury.

03

Do I receive pain and suffering?

Unfortunately pain and suffering is not available in worker’s compensations. Injured workers are limited to medical and loss wage benefits. However, if you were injured through the fault of a third party, damages, including pain and suffering could be available in a third party negligence case.

04

When do I tell my supervisor about an accident at work?

No matter how minor, it is imperative that you inform your supervisor right away from the accident. You may not feel hurt right after the accident, or you may be embarrassed, but if you do not notify your supervisor within 30 days of the accident, your claim could be denied.

05

Where do I get initial medical treatment?

After notifying your employer of the accident, go to the doctor chosen by your employer or your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier.

General Questions

01

Who pays my medical bills?

All authorized medical bills should be paid by the insurance company.

02

What do I do if I receive a bill from my doctor?

In Florida, the workers’ compensation insurance carrier will dictate who you can treat with for your work accident injuries. You are entitled to a one time change during the course of your injury; however, the insurance carrier will choose your one-time change as well.

03

Can I see my own doctor or change the doctor I am treating with?

In Florida, the workers’ compensation insurance carrier will dictate who can treat you for your work accident injuries. You are entitled to a one-time change during the course of your injury; however, the insurance carrier will choose your one-time change as well.
