What Is Workers' Compensation?
According to Florida law, most companies are required to have workman's compensation coverage for their employees. It is dependent on the type of business and the quantity of employees, but most companies should offer you coverage.
If you are hurt or become ill on the job, workers' compensation is a program set up to pay for your medical bills and lost earnings. Typically, you are required to visit a physician that is approved by your employer. If you do not report your injury or illness right away, your employer may deny you coverage. There are even companies that will require you to resign after paying your claim. All of these confusing tactics are why you need to hire a workman's compensation attorney to help you with your case.
