Understanding Workers’ Compensation in Florida

Workers’ compensation is a system designed to benefit both employees and employers by providing injured workers with financial support after a work-related accident or injury. As a no-fault system, workers’ compensation generally extends to all eligible employees, regardless of their fault in the accident. 

In return, employees who receive workers’ comp benefits are legally prohibited from bringing lawsuits against their employer, making it vital to consult with a workers' compensation attorney who can thoroughly review your legal options. 

Your Dedicated Attorneys

  • You Only Pay When You Collect

    Our work is conducted on a contingent fee basis. This means that you pay nothing unless we make a recovery on your behalf.

  • Experienced Trial Attorneys

    Each case is assigned to a lead attorney and a supporting attorney. This ensures continuity during the legal process and enables us to provide responsive service.

  • Hundreds of Millions Recovered

    At Perry & Young Law Firm, we take pride in championing the rights of our clients. We have secured hundreds of millions for our clients. 

Am I Eligible for Workers’ Comp in Florida?

While some exceptions can apply, most Florida employers are required to carry workers' compensation coverage, meaning that most employees should be eligible for workers' compensation benefits after a covered incident. Keep in mind that the eligibility requirements vary between industries. 

Below is an overview of workers’ compensation eligibility by industry

  • Construction Industry: All construction-related employers must carry workers' compensation, regardless of how many employees they have on staff. There are few exceptions to this, although some construction employers may be eligible to file an owner’s exemption depending on the circumstances. 
  • Non-Construction Industry: Non-construction employers with four or more employees must carry workers' compensation, including full-time and part-time workers. 
  • Agricultural Industry: Agricultural employers with six or more workers are required to have workers’ compensation coverage. Alternatively, the same mandate applies to those with at least twelve seasonal workers employed. 

Types of Workplace Injuries

From electrocution accidents to catastrophic injuries to burn injuries, a lot can go wrong in the workplace

A qualified workers' compensation attorney can seek fair compensation on your behalf after sustaining an injury on the job, such as: 

  • Machine malfunctions
  • Work vehicle accidents 
  • Sprains and strains
  • Construction accidents
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Occupational illnesses
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Defective or faulty equipment
