What Isn’t Covered Under Florida Workers’ Comp?

While workers' compensation laws are designed to encompass a broad spectrum of employment-related injuries and illnesses, there are certain situations where an injury may not be covered. These include:

  • Injuries that occur while an employee was committing a serious crime or under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Self-inflicted injuries, such as those that occur when an employee intentionally hurts themselves
  • Injuries sustained while an employee was violating company policy or engaging in horseplay
  • Injuries that happen while the employee wasn't on the job or participating in a work-related activity

Workers’ compensation cases can be complex and often require professional legal evaluation. As workers’ comp attorneys, workers can rely on our team to guide them through the legal complexities of determining workers’ comp eligibility and filing a claim.

Additionally, some types of employees, such as independent contractors and certain agricultural workers, may not be covered under workers' compensation laws. Consulting with a workers' compensation attorney is a crucial first step to determining whether you may be eligible for workers' comp benefits. 

If you were wrongfully injured, our lawyers can help determine an effective legal recourse for your unique needs. Call (850) 215-7777 to discuss your case.

Workplace accidents can happen in any industry, especially in high-risk fields like construction and healthcare.

Common types of workplace injuries include

  • Head injuries 
  • Sprains and strains 
  • Neck and back injuries 
  • Burns and disfigurement
  • Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) 
  • Repetitive motion injuries, such as carpal tunnel

In Florida, tens of thousands of workers are injured on the job every year. That’s why our Panama City Beach workers' comp lawyers are passionate about defending the rights of injured workers and ensuring they receive the compensation they deserve.

Are Florida Employers Required to Carry Workers’ Comp? 

Under state law, workers' compensation is mandatory for most employers to carry. However, specific coverages vary based on numerous factors, including the type of employment industry, the number of employees on staff, and entity organization. Consider this overview of workers’ comp requirements for employers: 

  • Construction Industry: All construction-related employers with at least one employee are required to carry workers' compensation coverage regardless of company size, including corporate officers and limited liability companies (LLCs). 
  • Non-Construction Industries: Any non-construction employer with four or more employees must carry workers' comp, including corporate officers and limited liability companies (LLCs). 
  • Agricultural Industry: Employers in the agricultural industry with six or more employees and/or twelve or more seasonal workers who work more than 30 days in one season (and/or more than 45 days in the same calendar year) are required to carry workers’ comp coverage under state law.
