Being healthy is essential to being able to support yourself and your family. An injury on the job can change everything: An injury on the job can prevent you from supporting yourself and your family. Too many injured workers are denied benefits for lost salary, medical care, and treatment, and face losing their homes and livelihoods. Do not let this happen to you.
Workers’ compensation in Florida is supposed to be a no-fault system, where the employer/carrier provides medical care and indemnity (lost income). This means an injured worker does not have to prove fault. However, more often than not, the injured worker is not receiving his or her fair share of indemnity or receiving proper medical care and treatment.
Employers with four or more employees are generally required to have workers’ compensation coverage. While construction companies are required to have workers’ compensation even if they only have one employee. The employee must report the injury within 30 days from the date of injury, and file a claim within two years.
Too many times the employer/carrier will send an injured worker to a doctor who will diminish the significance of an injury. The employer/carrier will not tell the employee that he or she has a right to a second medical doctor’s opinion and treatment.
