What is Covered?
Most injuries, disease exposures or accidents that are a direct result of a job are covered by Florida Workers Compensation. Outright injuries, injuries resulting from repetitive actions or a disease that has occurred due to exposure at your place of employment, as well as a disease that has developed due to your employees job are all covered by Florida Workers Compensation.
If an employee has developed a disease as a direct result of exposure to a chemical while on the job, they are legally covered by workers compensation. Respiratory problems, and psychological disorders that have occurred due to your work place, are also covered under workers compensation.
What Injuries To Look For
Not all injuries that occur on the job are sudden accidents. Repetitive motion injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome can also be considered an accident. Back injuries, neck and head injuries, brain injuries and joint injuries can all be eligible injuries for workers compensation depending on the job being performed when the injuries occurred. Permanent injuries resulting from your employees job such as hearing loss are also entitled to workers compensation.
If you have employees, it’s only a matter of time before they find they’ are suffering from an injury that was acquired while on the job, make sure you’re covered before they need a Florida Workers Compensation attorney.
