Purpose of Workers' Compensation
Workers’ compensation coverage exists for the following reason: You get injured on the job and can’t work. Since you’re not working, you’re not making money. To solve this, you file a claim for benefits, and you get some level of compensation.
In exchange for your employer paying for workers’ compensation insurance (which many employers are required to carry by Florida law), your employer and coworkers are off-the-hook for liability for your on-the-job injury — you can’t sue them, in most cases, but the worker’s compensation insurance is still paying you money for not being able to work.
What types of claims are covered?
Here are just a few of the common injuries that may be eligible for workers’ compensation:
- Pre-existing conditions that the workplace aggravates
- Injuries sustained during work-sponsored activities including breaks, lunch hours, etc.
- Serious illnesses contracted from exposure to certain toxins at work
- Injuries from mental and physical strain brought about by increased work responsibilities
If you’ve been injured in any of the ways mentioned above (or you’ve been injured another way), don’t waste time. Call us right away as your case may need immediate action. An added bonus of working with our firm is that while some firms only practice Workers’ Compensation, we practice both Workers’ Compensation and Personal Injury. That’s important because we can also help you file a separate personal injury lawsuit as well if that is necessary.
