Worker’s comp is a type of insurance mandatory for any Florida business with more than four employees. It provides compensation to employees hurt by work related injuries, and protects employers from lawsuits. Some of the benefits include providing assistance with medical bills, lost wages, the cost of traveling to doctors appointments, and even medical prescriptions. There are also benefits available if your spouse is killed in a work related accident. According to the Florida department of financial services, there were over 50,000 claims worker’s comp claims filed in 2019 and the average settlement for worker’s comp cases in 2019 was around $14,000. There is a statute of limitations on these cases so it’s important to speak with a lawyer as soon as you realize your injuries may be related to your job.
