What Compensation Could I Receive After A Workplace Injury In Florida?
If you are injured at work in Florida, you have the right to pursue compensation following your accident. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, you could pursue a workers’ compensation claim or a lawsuit.
Under state law, most employers must provide workers’ compensation insurance to their employees. If your employer provides this coverage, you could file a claim and secure benefits for wage replacement, medical care, and other losses. However, you cannot pursue a lawsuit against your employer if you file a workers’ compensation claim.
If your accident occurred due to the negligence of another person or company, you could file a personal injury lawsuit in civil court. Multiple parties may be at fault in a Florida workplace injury claim, including the following.
- Drivers of motor vehicles
- Manufacturers of defective products
