How do I know if I have a workers’ comp claim?
Although many people do not know about the ins and outs of Florida workers’ compensation laws, it is relatively easy to determine if you have a workers’ comp claim. As soon as you have a workplace accident and injury or discover an injury or illness related to your job duties, you have the right to file a workers’ comp claim in Florida.
Most employers carry workers’ compensation insurance to protect them when their employees become injured and sick. Pursuing workers’ comp benefits following an injury is a worker’s right. While some workplace accidents and injuries are straight forward and will be covered by the insurance carrier, other work-related injuries are more complicated. For example, if your injury developed over time due to repetitive motions, you may have a more difficult time pursuing your claim.
In either event, if your injury was caused by your work, you have a workers’ compensation claim that you should pursue. For help pursuing your claim to the fullest and to make sure you get the compensation you are due, you should contact a workers’ comp lawyer who knows the ins and out of Florida’s laws.
