Accidents are pretty common at work. Common examples are: a broken arm resulting from a fall off a ladder; a back injury from lifting heavy objects; or carpal tunnel syndrome, and other repetitive stress injuries.
A workers' compensation attorney can help workers who are injured on the job recover compensation for their injuries, including getting needed medical care, reimbursement for out-of-pocket medical bills, and recover lost wages. Workers' compensation laws permit workers who are hurt on the job to receive a number of benefits, depending on the injury. These benefits may include:
Florida workers' compensation insurance pays death benefits to the eligible survivors of workers who have died because of a work-related injury or illness.
Permanent disability is any lasting disability from your work injury or illness that affects your ability to earn a living, even if you are able to go back to work.
Under Florida law, you are not paid for the first seven days of disability. However, if you lose time because your disability extends to over 21 days, you may be paid for the first seven days by the insurance company.
