In Florida, workers are protected by law when there is an injury that takes place during the course and scope of the job. It should be noted that fault or liability is not a required element to pursue a claim or case for worker's compensation in the State of Florida. Furthermore, it should be noted that the worker can even be partially or wholly at fault when there is an injury that takes place at work.
The purpose of Florida Worker's Compensation Laws is to provide an injured worker with benefits in the form of medical bills, lost wages, and other benefits while a worker is unable to work, is only able to work on a light duty basis, and for the personal injuries that ultimately are permanent in nature.
Unfortunately, injured workers are not always provided with the necessary medical care, lost wages, work accommodations, and other benefits that the injured workers deserve in the aftermath of a work related personal injury. A Florida Worker's Compensation Attorney can guide and represent the injured worker through the maze and challenges of the system and when necessary take formal legal action by taking the case through a final hearing to protect and enforce the legal rights of the injured worker.
