The term "workers' compensation" refers to a system of laws outlining specific benefits to which injured employees are entitled and the procedures for obtaining such benefits. Every state has its own workers' compensation laws, which vary somewhat from state to state. In addition, there are special federal workers' compensation laws for employees of the federal government and other specific types of industries.

Under Florida law, most businesses must have some form of workers' compensation insurance to cover injured employees. If you have been injured at work, our attorneys can explain the complexities of workers' comp and help you secure the benefits to which you are entitled.
