About Workers' Compensation in Tampa

Workers' compensation is a social insurance program that was established to protect both employers and employees in the event of workplace accidents and work-related injuries. In exchange for offering employees no-fault coverage for all types of on-the-job injuries, employers are protected from lawsuits filed by the employees who have sustained these injuries. By filing a workers' compensation claim, an injured worker in Tampa, Florida has the opportunity to seek money that will cover his or her medical bills and lost wages from missed work. He or she may be able to recover these benefits without having to prove negligence on the part of the employer or another employee - the only requirement is that the injury must be work-related.

To take advantage of workers' compensation benefits, you will need to report your injury to your employer. Your employer then has the obligation to report the incident to the insurance company, which will take over investigating the accident or injury and paying your benefits. At any point in this process, it is important to consider involving an attorney to handle your claim. Although this does not happen in every single case, there is the possibility that your employer will refuse to report your injury to the insurance company or that the insurance company will dishonestly handle your claim. A Tampa workers' compensation attorney can help ensure your legal rights are protected in this entire process.
