Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that provides wages and coverage of medical bills for employees who suffer a workplace injury or illness. Individuals who are hurt on the job can receive several types of financial support to cover their medical expenses, lost earnings, and other costs.
Because workplace injuries tend to be painful, stressful, and economically debilitating, they can be devastating for the worker and their family.
If a claim is denied, delayed, it’s wise to seek our free advice. Our qualified and dedicated legal professionals facilitate the claims process so that someone injured on the job receives the compensation they are entitled to.
These insurance policies are designed to provide numerous benefits to injured workers. They should cover medical expenses like doctor appointments, hospital stays, outpatient procedures, surgeries, physical therapy, and more.
Additionally, workers’ compensation insurance may cover the employee’s wages lost as a result of the injury. They typically also have a death benefit paid to the family members of a worker who is killed during the course of their work.
Every employer in Florida is required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Typically, these policies offer protection for a wide range of injuries such as:
These and other injuries may all be covered by workers’ compensation insurance as long as they occurred during the employee’s duties.
The number of benefits to which the injured worker may be entitled varies greatly, with the severity and extent of the injuries guiding how much compensation is offered.
Unfortunately, the insurance companies that provide these policies make a habit of looking for underpaying these claims.
Injuries that occur on the job are usually treated differently than injuries that are unrelated to work. They can become complex for a variety of reasons. For example, the employer may claim that the injury didn’t happen at work, you suffered permanent damages and were unable to return to work, or the employer’s coverage isn’t enough to cover the medical bills and compensate for lost wages.
