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. 

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

Common Challenges in Florida Workers’ Comp

While workers’ compensation can seem straightforward, the system entails many complexities that can be difficult to navigate without an in-depth understanding of state and federal law. That’s where our Tallahassee workers’ compensation lawyers come in. We have a proven track record of helping injured workers navigate the legal intricacies of filing for workers’ comp benefits. 

Common challenges we handle in workers’ comp disputes include:

  • Claim denials: A common issue injured employees can face is the unjust denial of claims by Florida insurers. This can occur for various reasons, such as a delay in reporting the injury or discrepancies in the medical report. An experienced workers’ comp lawyer can contest unjust denials by filing an appeal on the worker’s behalf, in addition to gathering and presenting supportive evidence as effectively as possible. 
  • Disputes with employers: In some cases, employers may try to dispute a valid workers’ comp claim, such as alleging that the injury didn't occur on the job or that the employee's negligence caused it. In these instances, having a knowledgeable lawyer can mean the difference between obtaining fair compensation and walking away empty-handed. Your attorney can collaborate with you to gather and present evidence that counters any false allegations made by employers. 
  • Medical disputes: Disagreements can also arise over the nature and severity of the injury, the required treatment, or the impact of the injury on the worker's ability to work. A workers’ comp attorney can help resolve medical disputes by arranging testimonies from healthcare experts and related specialists to fortify employees’ claims accordingly in workers’ comp disputes.
  • Permanent disability ratings disputes: If a worker sustains a permanent disability due to a workplace injury, disputes can arise over the disability's rating, directly affecting the amount of workers' comp benefits awarded. A workers’ comp lawyer can help ensure that disability ratings are fair and just by effectively demonstrating the extent of the workers' disability.
  • Delayed/inadequate compensation: In some cases, injured workers can face delayed benefits or receive less compensation than they are entitled to. If this occurs, a trusted workers’ comp attorney can help ensure prompt and full payment of benefits by holding involved parties accountable for their legal and ethical obligations.
