Also Serving the Brandon, FL, Area
There is an old adage that states that if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. Sometimes however, things happen at work that you don’t love and you find yourself in a situation where you may be unable to work for a time. When you are injured on the job, it is the responsibility of your employer to help pay for the costs of those injuries, typically including medical bills and any necessary hospitalization time and visits to the doctor’s office. However, sometimes your place of work will be unwilling to aid in this or pay minimally so that your medical costs aren’t covered.

In the State of Florida, it is illegal to withhold funding for workers’ compensation. Therefore if your employer is unwilling to compensate you for the injuries you sustain while on the job, you have complete legal grounds to seek restitution. Thankfully, according to Florida law, you also don’t have to prove anyone’s fault in the workplace injury nor do you have to state the injury’s cause. The only relevant information in a workers’ compensation case is the sheer fact that injuries were sustained while the individual was on the job.
