Workers' Compensation Claims

 

All employers are legally required to provide employees with a safe working environment. Nevertheless, each year, millions of Americans are injured in work-related accidents.

In Florida, employers must purchase workers’ compensation insurance, which provides benefits to employees whose injuries arise out of, and in the course, of their employment. This insurance protects employees regardless of fault.

 

Potential Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Depending upon a variety of factors, including the nature and severity of one’s claim, an injured worker may receive benefits or reimbursement for the following:

  • Medical treatment
  • Hospital fees
  • Prescriptions
  • Durable medical products
  • Travel expenses to attend appointments and pick up prescriptions
  • Ambulance services
  • Weekly compensation to replace lost wages
  • Vocational re-education & retraining
  • Compensation during vocational re-education & retraining
  • Occupational rehabilitation services
  • Lump sums or bi-weekly benefits for permanent impairment ratings
  • Lump sum settlements
  • Death benefits and/or funeral expenses
