Workplace accidents are relatively common, even in safe working environments, and they can happen for a variety of reasons. But if a business owner fails to provide a healthy and secure workplace, the chances of an accident increase exponentially, and workers may be entitled to legal compensation. Most Florida workers receive Workers’ Compensation benefits from their employers, to help them secure immediate restitution and medical assistance to treat any injuries suffered in the workplace, but claims can often be denied, again for a variety of reasons.
If you suffer a workplace accident, it is extremely important to report it immediately to your supervisor, even if your injury is not deemed serious and you do not miss any work. And even if you feel fine, it’s always recommended that you see your physician, as many injuries go undetected at the time they occur, and it becomes more difficult to prove that they were related to the accident if the effects surface at a later time.
