Workers' Compensation is a form of insurance benefit that allows an employee who was injured at work to file a claim and pursue monetary compensation for the injuries that they have received. It is the duty of your employer to provide you with a reasonably safe work environment, when this does not occur and you are injured in an accident then you may be able to collect damages and compensation for the injuries that you have received. These damages are designed to compensate for financial hardships such as medical bills, loss of wages, and future loss of wages.
Filing a Workers' Compensation Claim
After you have been injured, you must notify your employer immediately and fill out the necessary documentation. Your supervisor will also fill out necessary forms for reporting an injury and file this claim with a WC coordinator within two days of the accident. There are some cases where injuries are so severe that it is physically impossible to file a claim within the allotted time, in these special circumstances there are provisions made to correct the process.
Next, the coordinator will prepare the necessary documentation and forward it to both the insurance carrier, and the Florida department of labor. The insurance carrier will then perform an investigation into the injury and the surrounding circumstances. Pursuant to their findings, they will either deny the claim, or accept it and apply the appropriate benefits.
