Getting hurt on the job in Daytona Beach can be devastating. Whether your injury occurred because of your employer’s negligence, another employee’s reckless actions, or even because of your own careless behavior, you may be eligible to obtain workers’ compensation benefits. In general, Florida workers’ compensation law is designed to ensure that injured workers can be compensated for lost wages and medical costs as a result of injuries that arise out of their employment.

If you were injured at work recently and need assistance with your workers’ compensation claim, a dedicated Daytona Beach workers’ compensation lawyer can speak with you today.

What is Daytona Beach Workers’ Compensation?

The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation explains that workers’ compensation is a type of insurance coverage that an employer is required to purchase in order to provide compensation to workers who sustain injuries tied to their jobs. Most employers are required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance coverage with only limited exceptions. Accordingly, most Daytona Beach workers who get hurt on the job should be eligible to seek compensation by filing a workers’ compensation claim. 

Employee Requirements for Daytona Beach Workers’ Compensation Benefits

To be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, an injured employee has numerous responsibilities that include but are not limited to the following:

  • Notifying the employer about the injury immediately;
  • Providing the employer with a Medical Treatment/Status Reporting Form every time the employee goes to a doctor’s appointment;
  • Returning to work after being released by the healthcare provider and when the employee offers a job that is within your current limitations;
  • Remaining in communication with the insurance provider, which usually includes reviewing information, signing necessary forms, providing updates about the employee’s condition, keeping the insurance carrier informed about changes in contact information, and returning any necessary forms to the insurance carrier;
  • Following the doctor’s treatment plan; and
  • Keeping scheduled medical appointments.

Types of Workers’ Compensation Benefits in Daytona Beach

Employees can be eligible for two types of benefits through workers’ compensation: medical benefits and wage replacement benefits.

Examples of medical benefits include but are not limited to:

  • Hospitalization;
  • Visits to the doctor’s office;
  • Physical therapy;
  • Lab tests;
  • Prescription medications;
  • Prosthetics; and
  • Travel expenses to reach the healthcare provider.

Examples of wage replacement benefits may include:

  • Temporary total disability benefits;
  • Temporary partial disability benefits;
  • Permanent impairment benefits; and
  • Permanent total benefits.

The amount of wage replacement compensation is a percentage of the employee’s average weekly wage (usually two-thirds of the employee’s average weekly wage before the injury occurred). Permanent benefits depend upon the specific nature of the impairment and the body part(s) injured.
