Fighting For Financial Protection After A Florida Workplace Injury

Under Florida workers’ compensation laws, your employer has an obligation to provide certain benefits if you suffer an injury or illness while working on the job.

Employees file a claim with their employer and, depending on their injury or illness, can recover the following:

  • Medical benefits: Injured workers are entitled to get paid for all medical costs associated with their work injury, including surgeries, physical therapy, prescription drugs, and even transportation to and from appointments.
  • Indemnity, or disability benefits: Workers unable to return to work can apply for full or partial temporary benefits, depending on the injuries. Those with permanent injuries may qualify for permanent total disability benefits.

In exchange, the employee cannot sue the employee or seek compensation for pain and suffering like a typical civil lawsuit would allow.

Claims Against Third Parties

Although as an employee, you cannot generally file suit against your employer for your workplace injuries. However, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against an outside third party if they were responsible.

For example, if you drive as part of your job and you are involved in a car accident caused by an at-fault driver, you could potentially make a claim against the driver in addition to obtaining your workers’ comp benefits.
