Florida Workers' Compensation Claims
Have you been injured or become ill because of a work-related duty or concern? In order to obtain the monetary assistance you require, you may need to file for workers' compensation benefits.
Workers' compensation coverage is required for most employers throughout Florida.
It pays for medical care, rehabilitation, and a percentage of wage replacement for lost time from work for employees who are injured on the job. In order to obtain these benefits, you can turn to our Orlando workers' compensation lawyers to help you file a claim. We understand the state's procedures and can help you correctly complete the necessary documents.
What Steps Should I Take After Suffering a Workplace Injury?
The two most important aspects of filing a claim for compensation are:
- To obtain medical attention; and
- To inform your employer of your injury
Both tasks should be done as soon as possible.
You only have 30 days to inform your employer, which is why you should take immediate action. Your employer should have a claim forms you can fill out and submit. If your employer refuses to comply with you fling the claim, we can provide you with assistance. The reason that many employers dispute claims is to keep workers' compensation rates from increasing.
