In order to secure your compensation and medical benefits, you have to act quickly, as there are limitations for how long you have to file a claim. The first thing you’ll have to do is provide your employer “notice of injury” which must occur within 30 days unless your employer has “constructive notice”. Oftentimes the employer has knowledge of your injury because he or she was there or heard about it from a witness to the accident.Work Related Injuries
There are a multitude of work-related injuries that you may experience while on the job. Here are some examples:
- Neck, back, shoulder, and knee injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Chemical burns
- Heart attack or stroke
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Neurological injuries
- Head trauma
- Vision or hearing loss
- Psychological injuries
These injuries can impede you from living your life as you were doing prior to the accident and can cause you physical, emotional, and financial burdens. You deserve compensation for what you have been through. Employers are generally required to have worker’s compensation insurance in Florida. We will seek monies and benefits from the insurance company to ensure that you are taken care of. In the event that your employer does not have insurance, we can still file a claim for benefits on your behalf. Worker’s Compensation is a no fault system. It doesn’t matter who caused your injury. Your employer needs to provide benefits under the law.Types of Benefits for Worker’s Compensation Injuries in Orlando
