Obtaining Workers’ Compensation Benefits In Florida Is More Difficult Than You May Think
We all work hard for our paychecks — regardless of the type of employment we do. And although construction, manufacturing and industrial workers tend to suffer some of the highest injury rates, any worker in any job could be injured or suffer a work-related illness.
When this happens, workers’ compensation benefits are available.
Types Of Workers’ Compensation Benefits Available
In Florida, workers injured on the job are entitled to recover:
- Medical expenses related to on-the-job injuries or illnesses, including mileage to and from doctors’ appointments
- Partial repayment of lost wages due to temporary total or partial disability
- Social Security Disability benefits if you are permanently restricted or prevented from working at all due to a disability that result from the injury or illness
- Death benefits for surviving immediate family members if an injury or illness proves fatal within one year
Unfortunately, employers and insurance companies can make it difficult for workers to get the benefits they deserve after a workplace accident.
