Workplace Injuries FAQs
Q: What type of medical treatment is available under Florida workers compensation and do I have to pay for it?
If you have been injured at work, you could be entitled to workers comp benefits, which includes paid medical expenses. Under Florida law, companies in the construction industry and those that employ four or more part or full-time employees, must obtain workers' compensation coverage.
As an injured worker, you are entitled to paid medical treatment for your work-related injuries. All authorized medical bills are submitted by your doctor to your employer’s insurance company for payment, so the good news is that you are not responsible for these medical bills.
Your medical treatment will be based on your physician’s recommendations. Your employer or the insurance company will authorize the medical care, treatment and prescriptions necessary for your injuries.
Sometimes insurance companies and employers can be difficult when it comes to workers compensation. If you find yourself in a situation where your benefits have been denied or delayed, contact an experienced Orlando workers compensation attorney at the Francis Law Group today at (407) 363-9939.
