The different benefits available to injured workers in Florida

Understanding the range of benefits available for injured workers and their families in Florida is important. Though any worker can suffer an on-the-job injury that may threaten their livelihood and ability to meet daily expenses for themselves and their families, workers in the construction, manufacturing and industrial injuries can be at greater risk. There are a variety of different benefits available to help injured workers and their families in Florida and understanding what they are is helpful.

Benefits injured workers may be able to obtain through workers' compensation when they have been injured on the job include compensation for medical expenses related to a workplace injury or illness they have suffered. Workers can also receive compensation for mileage traveled to and from their doctor's appointments to obtain treatment for the workplace injury or illness they have suffered. In addition, workers may be able to receive partial repayment of lost wages as a result of partial disability or total disability related to the workplace injury or illness they are suffering from.

Other types of benefits, such as Social Security disability benefits, may also be available to injured workers who are unable to engage in substantial gainful activity because of the workplace injury or illness they are suffering from and meet the other requirements to qualify. Workers' compensation death benefits may also be available to immediate family members of the worker in circumstances of a fatal workplace injury or illness within one year.

Workers' compensation benefits in Florida can be essential benefits for workers and their families struggling to pay the bills and provide food and essentials for their families because they are unexpectedly unable to work due to an on-the-job injury or illness. It is critical for injured workers and their families to be familiar with the help and resources available to them and how to obtain workers' compensation benefits when needed.
