Florida Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
Injured at Work? Michles & Booth Can Help.
With few exceptions, all workers in the state of Florida are covered by workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance purchased by your employer that covers you in the event you are injured while at work or while performing work-related duties. In exchange for this coverage, you are generally prohibited from suing your employer directly.
If you or your loved one was injured at work and you need help filing a workers’ compensation claim, or if your claim has been denied, contact Michles & Booth. With offices in Pensacola, Crestview, Fort Walton Beach, and Tampa, our Florida workers’ compensation lawyers assist clients across the state with all aspects of their workers’ compensation claims.
What Is Covered by Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation claims differ somewhat from personal injury claims. For one, you do not need to prove that another person/party acted negligently, leading to your injuries and damages. Instead, generally speaking, you need only prove that you were injured while on the job.
Notably, workers’ compensation insurance does not cover all of the same damages that you could potentially recover in a personal injury lawsuit.
In most cases, workers’ compensation covers:
- Your medical expenses
- Your lost wages/income
- Death benefits
You may qualify for temporary total disability, temporary partial disability, and/or impairment benefits. This will depend on the nature and extent of your injuries/occupational disease. Visit our Workers’ Compensation Benefits page to learn more.
Act Quickly to Recover Your Workers’ Compensation Benefits
In Florida, you typically only have 30 days to report the accident/your injury to your employer. Once you have reported your injury, you generally have two years in which to file for workers’ compensation benefits.
Our Florida workers’ compensation lawyers can help you navigate the process of filing for and recovering your workers’ compensation benefits. Learn more about how to file a workers’ compensation claim here.
