Workers’ Compensation Laws in Florida

Under Florida law, all businesses that have four or more employees are required to provide workers’ compensation insurance. Companies are exempt from this requirement if their employees are sole proprietors or partners. As an employee, if you were injured on the job, it is likely that you will incur costs that need to be covered by workers’ compensation insurance.

Typical costs to be covered by workers’ comp include:

  • Lost wages
  • Ambulance transportation
  • Hospital bills
  • Ongoing medical expenses
  • Disability payments

After an injury in the workplace, you have the right to file a claim against your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance policy. Unfortunately, dealing with insurance companies can be a hassle. They rarely grant you the settlement you are negotiating for, which is why it helps to have experienced Miami workers' compensation attorneys on your side.

  • Inform your employer in writing of the incident in detail (they provide you with the next steps), and
  • Consult with a local attorney about your case.

Can I Appeal a Denied Claim?
