When you become ill or seriously injured while on the job, your life can quickly be turned upside-down. In addition to physical symptoms and costly medical bills, you also may be temporarily or even permanently left unable to work. This can have devastating consequences for you, your family and your future. However, there are legal actions that you can take to protect yourself. As a Florida resident, you are entitled to start a workers’ compensation claim if your injury or illness occurred while you were completing job-related duties. Because time is of the essence with these claims, you should consider contacting Florida Workers’ Compensation Lawyer David G. Abramovici, Esq. at your earliest convenience.
Under Florida law §440.055, all employers who have four or more workers are required to protect their staff by offering workers’ compensation insurance. If they do not do so, they must provide clear written notice of this fact. This type of insurance is a safety net for employees who have been injured while doing their job during regular work hours regardless of who was at fault. It helps to pay for lost wages as well as medical expenses. However, it does not come into force automatically. The injured worker must file a claim in order for it to go into effect.

Supporting documents include physicians’ reports, coworker statements, accident reports and employment records.
