For now, let's take a closer look at some of the types of workers' compensation benefits in Florida you may be eligible for if you're injured on the job.Medical Benefits
In Florida, injured workers are entitled to receive medical benefits that cover reasonable and necessary medical treatments related to their work-related injury or illness. These benefits include doctor visits, hospitalizations, surgery, prescription medication, ongoing rehabilitation services, and medical devices. You are not responsible for a co-pay; the full cost of your medical care related to your injury may be covered.Lost Wages
If your work-related injury or illness prevents you from returning to work, you may be eligible for lost wage benefits, which replace a percentage of your average weekly wage if you're unable to work temporarily or even permanently.
If you feel you're not being offered your rightful wage benefits or if an employer or insurer is pressuring you to return to work before you've recovered, contact Flaxman Law Group for a free consultation with a Florida workers' compensation benefits lawyer to discuss your options.Re-Employment Benefits
In cases where an injury or illness prevents you from returning to your previous job, Florida's workers' compensation system provides vocational rehabilitation benefits to help you acquire new skills or find alternative employment that suits your limitations.
These benefits can include education and training, job placement services, and help with job searches. The goal is to provide you with the necessary resources so you can re-enter the workforce.Death Benefits
In cases of fatalities arising from workplace injuries or illnesses, there may be workers' compensation benefits in Florida for surviving dependents. These benefits may help cover funeral and burial expenses and income replacement for dependents.Contact an Experienced Workers' Compensation Benefits Attorney in Florida
