Working with a Port St. Lucie work injury lawyer, to manage your workers compensation case is just the step to take. This is especially true if you are experiencing difficulties with your employer in obtaining the benefits you are entitled to. Workers compensation plays a critical role and is in place for a variety of reasons. The Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt can help you to understand Florida lawyers as they pertain to workers compensation and can assist you in the many hurdles you may be experiencing. If you are facing a situation where your employer does not have the necessary workers compensation insurance, we want to help you receive the compensation you deserve for your losses.

Reasons for Workers Comp Insurance

When an injury occurs while on the job, accident victims can be left to contend with serious injuries, medical expenses and missed time away from work. Each of these factors all equates to financial loss and in some cases, incredibly physical pain. Workers compensation insurance is a system in place for the purposes of providing employers and their employees with a number of benefits. When an employee accepts workers compensation, they waive their right to file a lawsuit against their employer. As a result, the employee gains access to the benefits provided through workers compensation that includes medical coverage and a portion of lost wages to name a few. Additionally, when employers provide this benefit to employees, they are protected from the costliness of legal action and in turn are protected from the possibility of financial ruin. 

Is Workers Compensation Required in Florida?

Our Port St. Lucie work injury lawyer, shares that workers compensation insurance is required for all Florida employers who have more than four employees. However, it’s important to note that all construction businesses are required to have coverage for all of their employees, even if they employ less than four people. Businesses must purchase workers compensation insurance through private insurance agencies that are approved by the Office of Insurance and Regulation. The Division of Workers Compensation employees investigators who routinely conduct inspections into workers compensation compliance. Failure to comply can result in fines and a stop work order and in some cases may result in criminal charges. 

If Your Employer Doesn’t Have Workers Comp insurance

What’s even worse than experiencing an injury on the job is to discover that your employer may not have the workers’ compensation insurance that is required. Chances are, you will be left unsure of where to turn or what steps to take next. At this stage, legal guidance is imperative as you may have the ability to take legal action for the damages you are facing, especially when your employer did not provide you with the required insurance coverage.
