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 providers or purchased by their employer.
Across the United States, Workers Compensation programs are intended to deliver medical and financial assistance to injured workers while prohibiting those workers from filing lawsuits against their employer for their injuries and losses.
While the system typically works, sometimes it can fail. Claims filed with an employer’s insurance company may be denied. When denied benefits, however, workers have the right to appeal the decision.
