Worker's Compensation Attorney - What You Need to Know About Your Legal Rights
Workers in the State of Florida and other States put in time, sweat, and skill to advance the interest and profits of their employers. Some occupations are very dangerous by the nature of the position like a utility line repair person or a road construction worker. While other occupations may not seem very dangerous like a clerical office worker or customer service representation. Whatever the occupation, position, or risks of the worker's job, the employer can be held liable for injuries that occur during the course and scope of the worker's employment. It should be noted that the employer need not be negligent for the injuries to the worker. Furthermore, the employee, himself or herself, may even be negligent for the cause of the injuries. The focal point of responsibility or liability for the work related injuries is whether the injuries took place during the course and scope of the employment. Florida has a no-fault system in place for worker's compensation benefits, claims and cases. In other words, an injured employee can pursue a worker's compensation claim as long as the injury took place during the course and scope of the employment regardless of fault.

The typical worker's compensation case involves benefits paid or to be paid by a worker's compensation insurance carrier. It should be noted that insurance adjusters are look for and find ways to limit or cut insurance benefits to the injured worker including those related to wage loss and medical care.
