Florida Workers’ Compensation Laws Protect Injured Workers
Unlike other incidents that cause personal injuries, you do not need you to prove fault in order to obtain workers’ compensation benefits for your losses. Instead, the Florida Division of Workers’ Compensation requires employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance that pays out benefits to employees. If you are an eligible employee who suffers a work-related illness or injury, you would file a claim with the employer’s insurance provider. There are strict time restrictions on filing a claim, so you must do so within the two-year statute of limitations on workers’ compensation claims.
In most situations, workers’ comp is your sole remedy for an on-the-job medical condition. There are exceptions, such as where:
- Your employer neglects or refuses to carry the required workers’ comp insurance policy;
- Your employer’s intentional conduct was the reason for your injuries; or,
- A third party caused your injuries.

Benefits Available In A Worker’s Compensation Claim
At The Benenati Law Firm, we understand that accidents can happen to anyone at any time and can change lives forever.
If your workers’ compensation claim is approved by your employer’s insurance company, state law provides that you can obtain certain benefits.
- Medical Expenses: Your medical bills may be covered for emergency treatment, surgery, doctor’s visits, prescription medications, therapy, crutches and medical equipment, and other healthcare-related services.
- Lost Wages: If you are out of work for more than seven days, you may be able to recover lost income when you:
- Cannot return to work because of your injuries;
- Can return, but are limited and cannot earn what you did before your injury; or,
- Have a permanent impairment that prevents you from working.
- Employment Services: You may get help with getting back to the workforce, which is important if you need to seek employment in unfamiliar areas.
Note that you cannot recover damages for pain and suffering in a workers’ compensation claim.

Don't Just Take Our Word for It
“The Benenati law firm makes you believe that you are the single most important PERSON (not case) to them. Throughout the entire process, they maintained weekly contact with me, asking how I was doing or if I needed anything. I was provided with frequent updates as to how my case was progressing and was pleasantly surprised with the speed at which they were able to reach a substantial settlement. I've had the unfortunate experience of dealing with other well-known personal injury attorneys in Orlando who were unable to provide the level of expertise, care and service that Walter Benenati and his team can!”
“I would like to thank the Benenati Law Firm for helping to take the stress out of dealing with the insurance company and for everyone being very professional and always available to take my calls. The speed of the case being closed exceeded my expectations and any future needs I will definitely be contacting them.”
“My experience with the Benenati Law Firm in Orlando was a great experience. They helped right away after a heartbreaking experience at another law firm. THEY MADE MORE PROGRESS IN MY CASE IN TWO MONTHS THAN 2 YEARS WITH MY FORMER LAW FIRM. I am so grateful.”
