Can My Employer Be Liable For My Overexertion Injury?
A: If you were injured on-the-job in Florida due to an overexertion injury and your employer has Florida workers’ compensation coverage, you may be covered for injuries. To find out the benefits that you are entitled to, you need to contact a skilled Florida work injury lawyer to discuss your workers’ comp claim.
If your employer doesn’t have workers’ compensation coverage and you suffered an overexertion injury at work due to their negligence, then your employer may be held liable for your injuries through a civil lawsuit. Also, if your employer failed to train you properly or provide a safe work environment, you can also hold them accountable for your Florida work injury.
