Altamonte Springs Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Being a worker in Florida may in itself be a dangerous job. To be sure, in a single year in the state, there were more than 300 fatal workplace injuries reported, and many more non-fatal injuries.

While there is nothing that can fully compensate a worker who is seriously injured on the job, workers’ compensation insurance is designed to offset some of the costs associated with a work injury, including medical costs and a percentage of lost wages. If you have been injured on the job, our Altamonte workers’ compensation attorney can help you pursue the compensation you deserve.

Who’s Covered in Florida?

In Florida, nearly all employers, with only a few exceptions, are required to purchase workers’ compensation insurance for their employees. This type of no-fault coverage is designed for workers who are injured while performing work-related tasks. In exchange for no-fault benefits (i.e. the injured worker does not have to prove the fault of any party), the worker is also barred from filing a suit directly against the employer; the employer is immune from liability.
