The Florida workers’ compensation system is complex. Those who have never dealt with the process often require guidance to ensure they get the benefits to which they’re entitled to.
One of the most common questions people have when injured at work is: If I get hurt at work will my injury be covered by workers’ compensation? The law usually covers most injuries and occupational illnesses that happen on the job.
However, there are some exceptions to that rule. You may not be covered by workers comp if you are injured on your way to work or driving home from work, if you don’t report the accident timely or if you suffer a mental health injury with no physical injury.
Those are a few of the exceptions and there may be more. If you have been injured on the job and have questions regarding your accident of injury, contact our office. Se habla espanol.
