Florida Welding Accidents: What You Need to Know
Our firm is solely dedicated to handling workers’ compensation cases for clients across the state, which is important if you decide to seek legal representation. The workers’ comp system is complex and can be difficult to navigate.
If you have been injured in a welding accident in Florida, here’s what you need to know:
Florida Is a No-Fault State
In a no-fault state, the workers’ compensation system operates on the principle of “no-fault,” which means that it doesn’t matter who caused the accident or injury. Employees are generally entitled to receive benefits under the workers’ compensation system, regardless of fault or negligence. After an accident, you have the legal right to pursue a work injury insurance claim.
You Could Be Entitled to Thousands Under Workers’ Compensation
If you have been injured in a welding accident while on the job, you may be eligible for benefits under the state’s workers’ compensation system. Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that provides medical benefits, wage replacement and other support to employees who sustain work injuries or illnesses. Some of the benefits that workers’ compensation may pay you include:
- Your medical costs
- Bills for rehabilitation
- Prescription drugs
- A portion of your lost wages
