Trusted information about Workers Compensation
Florida Workers Compensation is an insurance program required by the state to provide needed benefits and compensation for workers injured on the job. With some exceptions, almost all employees have access to Workers Compensation benefits through insurance provided or purchased by their employer.
Across the United States, Workers Compensation programs are intended to speed delivery of medical and financial assistance to injured workers while prohibiting those workers from filing lawsuits against their employer for his or her injuries and losses. Much of the time the system works, but sometimes it does not. Claims filed with the insurance company of the employer may be denied. When denied benefits, however, workers have the right to appeal the decision.
