Overview Of Florida’s Workers’ Compensation System
When you’re injured at work, you suffer many of the same losses as any other personal injury accident victim. Instead of going through civil litigation, you can pursue your interests through Florida’s Workers’ Compensation system. Most employers are required to carry insurance to protect employees in these situations, and you file your claim with the insurer.
The advantage of the workers’ compensation program is that you don’t have to prove that your employer was at fault, and your benefits can be paid out quickly. The caveat is that this is your sole remedy. You cannot file a civil lawsuit after a work-related accident, unless:
- Your employer acted intentionally to cause your injuries;
- Your employer doesn’t carry workers’ compensation insurance as required by law; or,
- A third party was responsible for your injuries.

Top Injury-Causing Workplace Accidents
Though workers’ compensation claims aren’t based upon negligence by your employer, there are still some conditions that commonly cause accidents in the workplace. Some of the more frequent injuries that result from these incidents include:
- Slips and falls from wet surfaces or debris;
- Moving vehicle accidents, both traditional motorized vehicles and specialized industry equipment;
- Incidents involving machinery, especially in manufacturing and other factories;
- Fires and explosions, which can lead to horrific burn injuries; and,
- Repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits For Victims
If you qualify under Florida law, you may be entitled to receive:
- Reimbursement for your medical costs, including any you may incur for future treatment;
- Amounts intended to cover a percentage of your lost wages; and,
- Disability benefits if you’re unable to work or can only work in a limited capacity, either temporarily or permanently.
In addition, if you’re a qualifying family member who lost a loved one in a workplace accident, you may be able to obtain death benefits through the workers’ compensation program. The specifics depend upon your relationship to the decedent and how many others may file a claim.
