Florida Workers’ Comp Benefits
Florida law provides medical benefits as well as compensation for lost wages for those who have been injured in a sudden accident or through repetitive motion activities. Workers who develop occupational illnesses caused by the type of work they do are also covered.
The workers’ compensation system has been set up to help you without any reference to fault. You are required to report your injury within 30 days to your employer. A medical provider authorized by your employer or his insurance company will give you the necessary medical care needed. The rate, amount, and duration of your benefits checks to cover lost income will be determined by whether you are totally or partially temporarily disabled or permanently disabled.
Do You Have a Workers Comp Case?
To be eligible to file a workers compensation benefits claim, you must meet the following basic criteria:
- You are an employee of the company.
- The company you work for carries workers compensation insurance.
- You have an injury or illness related to your work.
- You have met Florida’s deadlines and requirements for filing a workers compensation claim.
Sometimes, though, a person’s employment status isn’t straight-forward, or their employer may say they don’t have a claim. If you are not classified as a full-time employee or if your employer tries to say that your claim is not valid, speak to a workers compensation lawyer who specializes in Florida law to help you make your case.
