What is Workers' Compensation?

Workers' compensation is a state-mandated insurance program that provides benefits to employees who suffer job-related injuries or illnesses. In Florida, this program is designed to cover medical expenses, a portion of lost wages, and rehabilitation costs for employees injured on the job.

Who is Eligible for Workers' Compensation in Florida?

Most employees in Florida are covered under workers' compensation. Employers with four or more employees, including both full-time and part-time workers, are required to carry workers' compensation insurance. There are specific requirements for certain industries:

  • Construction businesses must have coverage for every employee.
  • Agricultural businesses with six or more regular employees and/or twelve or more seasonal workers who work more than 30 days must also provide coverage.

How Do I File a Workers' Compensation Claim in Florida?

  • Report the Injury: Inform your employer immediately after the injury occurs or as soon as you become aware of a work-related illness.
  • Seek Medical Treatment: Your employer or their insurance carrier will provide you with an authorized medical provider.
  • File a Claim: Your employer is responsible for reporting your injury to their insurance company. You can also file a claim with the Florida Division of Workers' Compensation. For more details, visit the Florida Division of Workers' Compensation.

What Benefits Are Available Under Workers' Compensation?

Workers' compensation covers all necessary medical treatments related to the injury or illness, including doctor visits, surgeries, physical therapy, prescriptions, and travel expenses for medical appointments.

Wage Replacement Benefits

If you are unable to work due to your injury, you may be entitled to wage replacement benefits:

  • Temporary Total Disability (TTD): If you cannot work at all while recovering, you may receive 66 2/3% of your average weekly wage.
  • Temporary Partial Disability (TPD): If you can return to work but earn less than 80% of your pre-injury wages, you may receive a portion of the difference.
  • Permanent Total Disability (PTD): If you are permanently unable to work, you may receive benefits for life.
  • Impairment Benefits

    If your injury results in a permanent impairment, you may receive impairment benefits based on the severity of the impairment and your pre-injury wages.

    Death Benefits

    If a worker dies due to a work-related injury or illness, their dependents may receive death benefits, including funeral expenses and financial support.

What Should I Do If My Workers' Compensation Claim Is Denied?

If your claim is denied, you have the right to dispute the decision. Steps to take include:

  1. Request a Reconsideration: Contact the insurance company to review the denial.
  2. File a Petition: You can file a petition for benefits with the Florida Division of Workers' Compensation. More information is available at the Office of the Judges of Compensation Claims.

How Long Do I Have to File a Workers' Compensation Claim?

In Florida, you must report your injury to your employer within 30 days of the incident. Failing to do so may result in losing your right to benefits. You also have two years from the date of injury to file a formal claim.

Can I Choose My Own Doctor for a Workers' Compensation Claim?

Generally, you must see a doctor authorized by your employer's workers' compensation insurance. If you are not satisfied with the care, you may request a one-time change of physician, but the new doctor must also be authorized by the insurance company.

What Happens If My Employer Does Not Have Workers' Compensation Insurance?

How Are Wage Replacement Benefits Calculated?

    • Wage replacement benefits are typically calculated as a percentage of your average weekly wage (AWW) prior to your injury. The calculation takes into account your earnings over the 13 weeks prior to your injury.

What Should I Do If My Employer Retaliates Against Me for Filing a Workers' Compensation Claim?

Retaliation for filing a workers' compensation claim is illegal. If you experience retaliation, such as termination or demotion, you can file a complaint with the Florida Commission on Human Relations.

Can Independent Contractors Receive Workers' Compensation Benefits?

Independent contractors are typically not covered under workers' compensation laws. However, misclassification issues may arise, and in some cases, contractors might be deemed employees and eligible for benefits.

In Florida, there is a 7-day waiting period before wage replacement benefits begin. If your disability lasts more than 21 days, you may be compensated for the initial 7 days.

How Long Can I Receive Workers' Compensation Benefits?

The duration of benefits depends on the nature and extent of your injury. Temporary benefits can last up to 104 weeks, while permanent benefits depend on the degree of impairment and the type of disability.

Can I Receive Workers' Compensation Benefits if I Am Partially at Fault for My Injury?

Yes, workers' compensation is a no-fault system, meaning you can receive benefits regardless of who was at fault for your injury, as long as it occurred in the course of employment.
