Palm Harbor Workers' Compensation
Whether you’re a teacher, nurse, construction worker, or truck driver, accidents can happen while you’re on the job. That’s why the Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR) in Florida requires most employers to purchase workers’ compensation coverage for their employees. However, when a work accident does occur, some insurance companies may try to downplay your injuries, or your employer may retaliate against you to avoid granting the benefits you need to cover expenses.
Not only are these tactics wrong, they are also illegal.
At Morgan & Morgan, our team of workers’ compensation attorneys is expert in handling cases like these. With over 30 years and a proven track record of getting results for our clients, our firm is ready to fight for you. For more information on how our team of specialized attorneys may be able to help your case, please fill out our free, no-obligation case evaluation form today.
If you have been injured on the job, don’t wait to file for your claim. Florida’s law requires you to claim your benefits within 30 days of your initial injuries to receive coverage and gives only 2 years to file a lawsuit for any lost wages.

What Kind of Benefits Can I Recover?
When you file for workers' compensation benefits in the state of Florida, depending on your injuries, you may be entitled to recover the following:
Wrongful Death: If an employee lost their life due to a work accident, death benefits could be owed to the survivors in the form of funeral expenses, education coverage, and financial coverage.
Loss of Wages: In the state of Florida, there are three types of wage loss benefits available to you. Temporary total disability (TTD), in most cases, covers about 66% of your regular wages. Temporary partial disability (TPD) provides coverage if you are able to return to work but are unable to earn the same wages as before your injuries. TPD can pay you up to 80% of the difference between your wages before your injury vs. what you are able to earn now. Impairment benefits can pay for permanent disability that is a direct result of your work injury.
Medical: Your medical benefits may cover hospital stays, doctor's appointments, treatments, prescription drugs, physical therapy, or rehabilitation bills. In some cases, it may also cover travel expenses that are directly related to your injuries.
