What Kind of Benefits Can I Expect?

One of the first questions injured workers ask is what types of benefits they are eligible to receive. Understandably, they want to know whether they can count on money to be there when they need it.

The Workers Comp Florida Benefits you receive will depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of your injury, and whether it will stop you from performing work in a modified or reduced capacity. When you meet with one of our workers’ compensation lawyers, we will discuss your claim and your eligibility for benefits, which may include:

Weekly wages. Workers’ compensation will pay your weekly wages up to a certain percentage. Your wage replacement benefits are calculated based on your earnings over the 13 weeks prior to your injury.

Medical costs. Workers’ compensation will cover all of your medical expenses, as long as they are related to your work injury. These benefits include payments for prescriptions, doctors’ visits, medical equipment, x-rays, and surgical procedures. If a medical expense is related to your injury, your benefits will cover it.

Temporary total disability. If your doctor says you are unable to work due to your injury, you are entitled to receive up to 104 weeks of temporary total disability benefits, which can be combined with any temporary partial benefits you may receive.

Temporary partial disability. In some cases, your doctor may determine that you are capable of returning to work, but only in a modified or reduced capacity. In this situation, you can receive up to 104 weeks of temporary partial disability benefits, which you can receive in combination with temporary total disability benefits.

Permanent total disability. Some injuries are so severe, they prevent an individual from ever working again. It is quite difficult to qualify for permanent total disability benefits. If you believe your injuries are severe enough to stop you from working, it’s important to speak to a workers’ compensation lawyer as soon as possible.

Permanent impairment benefits. Once your doctor determines that you have improved as much as you ever will, your temporary disability benefits will end. To continue receiving disability benefits, your doctor must give you a permanent impairment rating. Your doctor can only award a permanent impairment rating when you have reached “maximum medical improvement.”
