Pursuing the maximum amount of workers’ compensation benefits for you
Workers’ compensation insurance is provided by employers and is designed to protect employees from the burden of costs resulting from an injury occurring on the job. In Florida, employers with four or more employees must provide workers’ compensation insurance. This is the case whether the employees are full-time or part-time. If the business is in the construction industry and employs one or more employees, workers’ compensation insurance is required. Florida farmers with five or more employees and twelve or more additional seasonal employees must also carry coverage. And, all public employers must maintain workers’ compensation insurance.
Insurance companies and business owners work to minimize their financial responsibility when employees are injured on the job. Employers are only legally liable for injuries to the extent that you are able to prove that your injury impairs your ability to work, and for the duration of the effects of the injury. Our New Port Richey workers’ compensation attorneys have earned a notable reputation of success handling workers’ comp cases. We know how insurance companies work, and we create undeniable strategies to ensure you are fully compensated for your work-related injuries.
Types of damages Florida law entitles you to recover for your workers’ compensation claim
The goal of the Florida workers’ compensation law is to protect employees from being put into financial peril due to an injury suffered at work. As a result, injured workers can recover compensation for all losses stemming from a work-related injury. In addition to helping you maximize your recovery, we help you determine whether a lump sum, or payments over time, is in your best interest.
The types of monetary damages you can recover for your workers’ compensation claim include:
- Past medical treatments
- Future medical treatments
- Lost wages
- Transportation costs
- Incidental costs from your injuries or inability to work
